Gibbs free energy and K

Postby J_CHEN 4I » Sun Mar 08, 2020 8:09 pm

How does the Gibbs free energy relate to K and Q?

The equations are on the formula sheet, but delta G = RTlnK, and u can extrapolate that out to non-standard values of delta G, which shows how Q is related as well.

The two equation would be deltaG(standard)=-RTlnK and deltaG(reaction)=deltaG(standard)+RTlnQ, which as mentioned, can be found on the formula sheet.

dG = dG0 + RTlnQ
