Unformatted text preview: ENTROPY AND SPONTANEITY HYPOTHESIS: if S is positive, the reaction will be spontaneous TEST THIS HYPOTHESIS Which of these processes are spontaneous as written? H2O(l) (at 25) H2O(g) Ag+(aq) + Cl-(aq) AgCl(s) Mg(s) + O2(g) MgO(s) S S S MJ Bojan Chem 112 1 Determining ReacLon Spontaneity using S What is S for: Mg(s) + O2(g) MgO(s) 1 atm, 298 K Calculate using absolute entropy S= So (MgO) = 26.8 J/mol-K So (Mg) = 32.6 J/mol-K So (O2) = 205.0 J/mol-K Do you think this reacLon is spontaneous? Is this a contradicLon to the second law of thermodynamics? MJ Bojan Chem 112 2 Entropy considering surroundings The entropy change of Mg(s) + O2(g) MgO(s) is not the only entropy change which occurs. This is only Ssystem ! Remember the 2nd Law: How do I find Ssurroundings ? The surroundings will absorb a quanLty of heat, qsurr equal to the heat energy given off by the reacLon: qsurr = -qsys = -Hsys (at constant T and atmospheric P) Ssurr = MJ Bojan Chem 112 3 Entropy considering surroundings Calculate (or look up) H for the reacLon: Mg(s) + O2(g) MgO(s) Hf (MgO) = 601.8 kJ/mol This reacLon is EXOTHERMIC Ssurroundings = Hsys / T = Suniverse = Ssystem + Ssurroundings > 0 The second law of thermodynamics is obeyed! MJ Bojan Chem 112 4 CRITERIA FOR SPONTANEITY H S Exothermic reactions (H <0) are usually spontaneous. Spontaneous if Ssystem + Ssurroundings > 0 We need a new state function that can predict spontaneity. This is called the Free Energy: G = H - TS T is absolute temperature (in K). G refers to a reaction at constant T and P. Criteria for spontaneity G < 0 Spontaneous G > 0 Not spontaneous G = 0 System at equilibrium. MJ Bojan Chem 112 5 Gibb's Cute Trick Second Law of Thermodynamics: Suniv = Ssystem + Ssurroundings > 0 (spontaneous) At constant temperature and pressure: Ssurroundings = qsys/T = Hsystem / T So now: Suniv = Ssystem Hsystem / T MulLply both sides by (T): TSuniv = Hsystem TSsystem By Gibb's definiLon: Gsystem = Hsystem TSsystem Therefore, at constant Temperature and Pressure: Gsystem = TSuniv MJ Bojan Chem 112 6 PotenLal Energy and Free Energy MJ Bojan Chem 112 7 STANDARD FREE ENERGY OF FORMATION Gf Free energy change in forming one mole of a compound from its elements each in their standard states. Standard States: Solid Liquid Gas Solution Elements Temperature Pure solid Pure liquid 1 atm pressure 1M solution Gf = 0 Usually 25C Units: Gf: kJ/mole Hf: kJ/mole S: J/mole-K MJ Bojan Chem 112 8 STANDARD FREE ENERGY STANDARD FREE ENERGY OF REACTION: Use tables of Gf at 298K. Grxn = Gf(prods) - Gf(reactants) Example What is Grxn for: AgCl(s) Ag+(aq) + Cl-(aq) Gfo -109.7 +77.1 -131.2 (kJ/mol) from Appendix C MJ Bojan Chem 112 9 STANDARD FREE ENERGY For other temperatures: Grxn Hrxn - TSrxn H and S do not vary much with T, BUT G does!!! Use tables of Hf and S to find Hrxn and Srxn and plug in to Grxn at a specific T. MJ Bojan Chem 112 10 EFFECT OF TEMPERATURE ON FREE ENERGY G = H - TS H and S do not change substantially with temperature, but G does. H S G Spontaneous?

G = G + RT ln Q MJ Bojan Chem 112 20 RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN G AND Keq G = G + RT ln Q At equilibrium, G = Q= G > 0 G < 0 G = 0 Keq < 1 Keq > 1 Keq = 1 MJ Bojan Chem 112 21 Free Energy and Equilibrium MJ Bojan Chem 112 22 ANALOGY BETWEEN POTENTIAL ENERGY AND FREE ENERGY Go slope = 0 At equilibrium point, G = 0 for interconverting reactants products Note: This does NOT mean Go = 0 RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN G AND G G = G + RT lnQ How do concentrations affect Q and G? Q Add more reactants Take away products Take away reactants Is this consistent with LeChatelier's Principle? MJ Bojan Chem 112 24 G rxn direction Equilibrium Constant Calculation What is the solubility product constant Keq of AgBr at 25oC? AgBr(s) Ag+(aq) + Br-(aq) Gfo Gfo Gfo Ag+ (aq) Br- (aq) AgBr (s) 77.1 kJ/mol -104 kJ/mol -96.9 kJ/mol MJ Bojan Chem 112 25 RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN G AND WORK For a spontaneous process, G = Wmax = The maximum work that can be obtained from a process at constant T and P. For a non-spontaneous process, G = Wmin = The minimum work that must be done to make a process go at constant T and P. What is "free" about Free Energy? G is how much work can be done by a process and is the portion of the energy change of a spontaneous reaction that is free to do useful work. But in actuality, not all of this "free energy" will be able to be used to do work. Some the energy enters the environment as heat.
