### Gibbs and Activation Energy

Hi! Is there a relationship between Gibbs energy and activation energy? Thanks! :)

From my discussion section, on the reaction profile, our TA defined the difference in energy between the reactants and products as the ∆G (in reference to kinetics). Activation energy is the minimum energy required for the reaction to take place. I don't think we defined much of a relationship between the two however. So, I'm guessing that even if there is (which there probably is), it isn't relevant to the topic at hand.

Is there an SI unit for the change in Gibbs free energy?

The SI unit for change in Gibbs free energy would just be the SI unit for Gibbs free energy (kJ/mol).
