Unformatted text preview: Q = RT ln Q K {z} < 1  {z } negative = negative and the reaction will continue to proceed towards products. At equilibrium Q = K and 4 rxn G = − RT ln K z } { 4 rxn G ° + RT ln = K Q = − RT ln K + RT ln K = 0 On the other side of equilibrium Q > K. Thus 4 rxn G = − RT ln K z } { 4 rxn G ° + RT ln >K Q = − RT ln K + RT ln >K Q = RT ln Q K {z} > 1  {z } positive = positive and the reaction will reverse to form reactants.
