  1 The meaning of  G rxn At constant temperature and pressure the sign indicates the spontaneity of the reaction. G rxn < 0 means spontaneous G rxn > 0 means not spontaneous (or spontaneous in the opposite direction) If we change the temperature we can change the sign of G rxn The magnitude of G rxn tells us the relative extent of the reaction. If we change the temperature we can change the magnitude of G rxn .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
