Gibbs free energy of half reactions

Postby Harsha 1J » Thu Feb 22, 2018 10:36 am

Can we add the Gibbs free energy of the half reactions to find the Gibbs free energy of the final reaction.

Yes since G is a state property it is additive.

Yes we can. Gibbs free energy is a state function because it is defined by other state functions. Therefore it can be added together to find the free energy of the reaction.

Since Gibbs free energy is a state function it can be added
