We will not go through those and take it as a given that the standard state is appropriately defined. Given a standard chemical potential ( ) , o A T p , then the analysis that we did for the ideal gas follows straight through and we find for a solution process A A(sol, T , p ) + B B(sol, T , p ) = C C(sol, T , p ) + D D(sol, T , p ) that following the ideal gas analysis in our previous lecture ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) [ ] [ ] [ ] [ ] = + + + o o o o ( ) ln C D B A A A B B C C D D C D G T T T T RT A B and the equilibrium constant K comes out through = ln o rxn G RT K , = o G RT K e Where...
