On the homework problem 5g.13, how do we calculate gibbs free energy if we arent given the value of RT?

R is a constant that you can find on the equations sheet posted on Dr. Lavelle's website. The one you want to use here is 8.314 J.K^-1.mol^-1. T is the temperature which in this problem is given as 1200. K.

Hope that helps!

Simply look up the value of R for the units being used

R is a constant, so refer to the constants and equations sheet on Lavelle's website and choose whichever has the correct units you need. T is provided in the question.
