2SO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) 2SO 3 (g) H o f (kJ) -296.8 0 -395.7 H = -197.8 kJ S() 248.1 205.0 256.6 S = -188.0 G o f (kJ) -300.2 0 -371.1 H = 2(-395.7) – 2(-296.8) = -197.8 kJ S = 2(256.6) – (2(248.1) + 205.0) = -188.0 G = H - T S G =-197.8 -298.15( 1000 0 . 188 - ) = -141.7 kJ Alternative calculation of G: G = Σ n p G o f product - Σ n r G o f reactant G = 2(-371.1) - 2(-300.2) = -141.8 kJ We can also calculate G using the formula G = Σ n p G o f product - Σ n r G o f reactant This is a shortcut, and saves some time. We would get the same result by calculating H and S from the table, and then calculating G using the formula G = H - T S This more general approach, however, lets us calculate G at different temperatures, and therefore determine reaction spontaneities at different temperatures. Consider the reaction from the previous example:

2SO 2 (g) + O 2 (g) 2SO 3 (g) As already calculated: H = -197.8 kJ S = -188.0 G = -141.8 kJ G = H - T S Since H and S are both negative, at a high enough temperature, -T S will be positive enough to be greater than the negative H, and the reaction spontaneity will reversed. This is shown in the following example. At what temperature will this reaction be spontaneous in the reverse direction under standard conditions? Under standard conditions, the reaction will be at equilibrium when G = 0 G = H - T S = 0 -197.8 - T( 1000 188 - ) = 0 T = 1052 K At temperatures above 1052 K, the reaction will be spontaneous to the left under standard conditions. Note that we assumed that H and S were both independent of temperature. This is approximately true if the temperature change is not too high. G, however, is never independent of temperature but is explicitly temperature dependent. G = H - T S If H and S are both negative, G will be < 0 (spontaneous reaction) only at a relatively low temperature. At high temperatures, G will be > 0 and the reaction will be non-spontaneous (or spontaneous in the reverse direction). If H and S are both positive, G will be < 0 (spontaneous reaction) only at a relatively high temperature. At low temperatures, G will be > 0 and the reaction will be non-spontaneous (or spontaneous in the reverse direction).

CaCO 3 (s) CaO(s) + CO 2 (g) H o f (kJ) -1207 -635.1 -393.5 S() 88.70 39.75 213.6 G o f (kJ) -1128 -604.0 -394.4 H = (-635.1 -393.5) - (-1207) = +178.4 kJ S = (213.6 + 39.75) - 88.70 = +164.65 H = +178.5 kJ S = +164.65 G = 178.4 -298.15( 1000 65 . 164 ) = 129.3 kJ Alternative calculation of G: G = Σ n p G o f product - Σ n r G o f reactant G = (-394.4 -604.0) - (-1128) = 129.6 kJ Thus the reaction is non-spontaneous at 298 K. The reverse reaction would be spontaneous at 298 K. Since H and S are both positive, at a high enough temperature, -T S will be negative enough to be greater than the positive H, and the reaction spontaneity will reversed. This is shown in the following example. At what temperature will this reaction be spontaneous to the right?

    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.
