Free Energy and Equilibrium a A + b B c C + d D G o < 0 If, at a given time ( t 0 ), A, B, C, D are in their standard states, then, a moment later ( t 1 ), the ratio [C] c [D] d [A] a [B] b will be larger than 1. What is the value of G at t 1 ? Q =

2 O ( l ) H 2 O ( g ) Calculate G o at 298K. Is the process spontaneous at this temperature (when both reactants and products are in their standard states)? Clicker question from Tuesday’s lecture: B. Yes, as evidenced by the fact that a puddle of liquid water at 298 K will eventually disappear. A.
