why does reaction free energy depend on pressure and the equilibrium constant?

it is temperature dependent because the equation delta G = -RTln(k) and also k is dependent on temperature too . also Delta G naught is when pressure is constant so there's that

I think this explains it well:

Essentially they are all linked through an equation.
