Gibb's Energy in Reactions and Kinetics

Postby JanejilaSnider2F » Thu Feb 18, 2016 10:45 pm

Under what circumstances and why would Gibb's free energy be equal to zero?

Gibbs Free energy is usually 0 when the equilibrium constant, k, is equal to 1. This means that neither the products or reactants are favored, and the reaction isn't spontaneous in either direction.
