Quiz 2 question

Postby Palmquist_Sierra_2N » Fri Mar 17, 2017 9:53 pm

On my quiz there was the problem asking what is the pseudo-equilibrium constant? It was number 4 on the Wednesday quiz. Does anyone know how we were suppose to solve/calculate for it? Thanks

So for the psuedo equilibrium constant K dagger, you would use this equation

deltaG dagger=-RT ln(K dagger) with dagger referring to the transition state

On my quiz you solved for delta G in the previous question and he temperature was given, so you would just have to solve for K

Thank you for this I also had this question on my quiz. One more thing, on question four where would the deltaG rxn and deltaG transition go for an endergonic and exergonic reaction?

If you're talking about graphing deltaG reaction and deltaG transition, deltaG reaction is the distance between products and reactants and deltaG transition is the distance from the reactant to the top of the transition state
