Unformatted text preview: entropy disorder ("lost energy") When writing a reaction in the other direction, change sign on G o '. G o' comes from measuring the equilibrium constant. T = temperature in kelvins The general equation for Gibbs Free Energy is: ln Q G = G o' + RT (But be careful when H + is in the reaction.) so or at equilibrium = G G =-n F E...
