When is delta G formation zero?

you'll almost always get delta G formation in a problem, but its usually zero for molecules that are already in their lowest energy states, such as diatomic noble gases.

You should generally know the molecules for which delta G of formation is zero (the same molecules for which delta H of formation is zero at their standard states).

Similar to delta H of formation, delta G of formation is 0 for elements and diatomic gases like Cl2.
