GFE and Hess's Law

Postby Jose Robles 1D » Sun Feb 09, 2020 9:53 pm

Can one use Hess's Law to find GFE? Or are there slight differences?

Yes, we can use Hess' law for Gibbs Free Energy because it's a state function.

Yes, there is a Hess type approach to calculating Gibbs Free Energy. You can calculate total delta G by adding or subtracting delta G(reaction 1) and delta G(reaction 2).
