Gibbs Free EnergyChapter 181Directionality of Chemical ReactionsGibbs Free Energy Changes and Equilibrium ConstantsWhen discussing whether the product side of a reaction is favored or not(spontaneity of the reaction), we have only considered the situation that both reactants and products are pure and in standard conditions.In such conditions we have concluded that:The sign of ΔG°determines whether the products-side of the reaction is favored. spontaneous reactionat constant temperature and 1 barpure reactants and pure pro0ductsGHTSp 2
