### Gibbs free energy of half reactions

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

Yes. I believe this is required in homework problem 14.33).

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.
