Difference in Answers?

Postby Lina Petrossian 1D » Sun Mar 10, 2019 8:53 pm

Will there be a difference in my answer if I calculate Gibbs free energy using the formula for products minus reactants or if I use the formula including enthalpy?

There might be differences but it shouldn't be drastically different. These differences could arise from the delta G changing for products and reactants based on the environment, or because the delta H might be slightly off because its being used for a wide variety of temps

There will be a slight difference but nothing significant enough to warrant taking points off if work is done correctly.
