## delta G

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \Delta H^{\circ} - T \Delta S^{\circ}$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= -RT\ln K$

$\Delta G^{\circ}= \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(products) - \sum \Delta G_{f}^{\circ}(reactants)$

### delta G

Besides the fact that delta G indicates that a reaction is in equilibrium, what else can it tell us?

A pretty simple explanation of what delta G indicates is the change in free energy of the system. In an exergonic reaction free energy is released, hence delta g is negative. In an endergonic reaction, free energy is inputed into the system, and delta g is positive.

### Re: delta G

delta G tells us if a reaction releases( if delta G is negative) or absorbs ( if delta G is positive) energy
