## Gibbs Free Energy Ionization

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

### Gibbs Free Energy Ionization

How is calculating the standard gibbs free energy of ionization different than just calculating regular standard gibbs free energy?

I don't think so. I calculated Gibbs free energy ionization the same way as standard gibbs free energy.

You just use the ionization constant and plug that into the -RTlnK equation. It's the same as calculating the regular gibbs free energy.
