Gibbs At Equilibrium

What will Gibbs free energy be when the reaction is at equilibrium?

When at equilibrium, the change in gibbs free energy is zero due to there being no enthalpy or entropy change. So gibbs free energy is the same amount as whatever we started with. Say G=5 Kj/mol and dG=0 (equilibrium), then G is still 5 Kj/mole.

When the reaction is at equilibrium the Gibbs Free energy will be zero

The deltaG will be equal to zero, and you'll know because the reaction won't be spontaneous in either direction
