Using the conditions of spontaneity to deduce the signs of Δ H and Δ S According to the second law: If Δ G < 0 the reaction is spontaneous If Δ G > 0 the reverse reaction is spontaneous If Δ G = 0 the system is at equilibrium Use this equation If T is small then i.e. at low temps, the reactions are spontaneous (
