Relation to Enthalpy and Entropy

How are Gibb's Free Energy, Work, Enthalpy and Entropy related?? is this significant?

Re: Relation to Enthalpy and Entropy

ΔG°RXN = ΔH°RXN - TΔS°RXN
G is Gibb's free energy, H is enthalpy, S is entropy. Enthalpy and work are related through the equation ΔU = qP + w = ΔH - PΔV.
It's significant in that a negative ΔG means that the reaction is spontaneous, and the sign of ΔG will depend on the values of ΔH and TΔS.

Re: Relation to Enthalpy and Entropy

these are all related through different equations that are given to us. they are all significant in their own way, as G tells us about spontaneity, and H tells us about endothermic/exothermic.

Re: Relation to Enthalpy and Entropy

You can calculate all of these values in the equation in one of the replies above in order to make extrapolations about whether the reaction will be spontaneous, whether its exothermic or endothermic, etc. These qualities tell us a lot about the reaction past just the quantified values of these terms.

By using the gibbs free energy equation, you see the relationship between each component.
