  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 .
