Workshop 7: Free Energy Recall that AG = AGO + RTan and that at equilibrium AG = 0 and Q 9 K. This allows us to relate
free energy to K as follows: AGO = RT In K We also know that AG0 = AH0  TASO, where, over
moderate temperature ranges [ranges less than 100 K degrees) both A50 and AH0 can be considered
approximately temperature independent. In todays workshop you will use this relationship to extract values of enthalpy and entropy using
temperature dependent measurements of the equilibrium constant. Lets tr and solve some roblems: 20 oints 1. By measuring the pH at various temperatures, the Kb for Temperature (K) n NH3[aq) was found to be temperature dependent, yielding 
the values in the table. (15 pts) 283 1.34 X 10'5
a] By plotting the available information appropriately, 293 1.42 X 10—5 obtain estimates for A80 and AH0 for the reaction: NH3(aq) + H20 2 NH4+(aq) + 0H(aq) 303 1.50 X 105 HINT 1: To begin this problem you must find an equation that relates Kb to A50 and AH0 [Think
about combing the equations above). Once you have done this, you will need to put the equation in
the linear form ofy = mx + b, and plot it. HINT 2: choosing your variables can be complicated. Clearly K will change when you change T. So
make T your independent variable [x], and then an would be your dependent variable [y]. A
general approach is to isolate your 'Y' on the left, and then look at what multiplies your 'X’ [that
would be the slope, m) and what is left over [that would be your yintercept, b). Make sure you
understand which two elements are your variables [i.e., your x and y) and which elements are
constants. Use the attached graph paper to make this plot. RT In K: = AHO  TASo In K = [AH0/R] [1 /T] + ASU/R (2 pts for equation) l‘fTemp 1“ Kb

equilibrium constant based on Le Chatelier's principle? [5 pts] Yes, because reaction is endothermic, and K increases with increasing temperature. EXTRA CREDIT: [5 ptsl Ifthe equilibrium position ofa chemical reaction shifts towards products as the temperature
increases, which ofthe following MUST be true? Circle all those that MUST be true and explain why. a] AH°<O
b] AH°>0 If K increases with increasing temperature, then the reaction must be endothermic
c] AS°<0
