## Outline of Thermodynamics #3

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

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

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

### Outline of Thermodynamics #3

Why does reaction free energy depend on pressure and the equilibrium constant?

Gibbs free energy depends on the equilibrium constant/reaction quotient as shown by these equations:
deltaGo=-RTlnK
deltaG=deltaGo+RTlnQ

To add on, you can tell that free energy, or ∆G, depends on the equilibrium constant K by observing the equation ∆G˚= -RTlnK. Also, the equilibrium constant will change if the pressure changes, thus ∆G depends on pressure as well.
