"In the above question, the partial pressure of the product is doubled, obviously the above reaction is no longer at equilibrium, calculate the reaction Gibbs free energy, ∆Gr, under these non-equilibrium conditions.

PPCl =0.8bar PPCl =PCl =0.2bar Q= PPCl5 = 0.8 =20

∆G = ∆G° + RT ln Q rr

∆Gr=−RTlnK +RTlnQ ∆Gr=RTlnQ −lnK

∆Gr=RTln20 −ln10

∆Gr = 8.314 J.K−1.mol−1 × 1943 K ln 20 − ln 10

= +11.2 kJ.mol−1"
