Unformatted text preview: reactant-favored. When the temperature is increased, the reaction will become more product-favored. The temperature slightly affected test tubes 1 and 2, so K is less than 0 when the solution is cooled and greater than 0 when the solution is heated. Test tubes 3 and 4 were not affected by the temperature, so K would stay be below 0 regardless of the temperature. 4. Exercise If K is greater than 1, then Gibbs free energy will be positive because the natural log of K will be negative. This means the reaction is reactant favored. If K is less than 1, then Gibbs free energy will be negative because the natural log of K will be positive. This means the reaction is product favored....
