Free energy

Postby itzeelpadillaDis1A » Tue Feb 13, 2018 4:41 pm

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

I think you're talking about the equation where the free energy of the reaction is equal to the standard free energy plus RTlnQ. I think there was some derivation that was not covered that got the RTlnQ part but all we have to know is that we take the standard free energy and alter it in some way which leaves us with the specific free energy for that reaction under those conditions.
