I 2 (s) --> I 2 (l) e. None of the above. 3. The gas-phase reaction between H 2 and Cl 2 can be initiated by ultraviolet light at 25 o C, H 2 (g) + Cl 2 (g) --> 2HCl(g) Using the thermodynamic data provided below, calculate the standard free energy change (in kJ) at 25 o C for this reaction. compound H f o , kJ mol-1 S o , J mol-1 K-1 H 2 130.57 Cl 2 222.96 HCl-92.307 186.80 4. In lecture, you observed the following reaction, 2H 2 (g) + O 2 (g) --> 2H 2 O(g) For this reaction, H o = -241.8 kJ and S o = -88.8 J K-1 . Assuming that H o = H and S o = S at all temperatures, calculate the temperature (in K) at which this reaction would become non-spontaneous. 5. For a particular chemical reaction at 400 o C, G = -67 kJ. Calculate the time (in seconds) it will take for the reaction to reach completion. 6. For a particular chemical reaction, H o is positive and S o is negative. Which of the following statements about the spontaneity of the reaction under standard conditions is TRUE ? a. The reaction will be spontaneous only if the magnitude of H o is large enough to overcome the unfavorable entropy change. b. The reaction will be spontaneous only if the magnitude of S o is large enough to overcome the unfavorable enthalpy change. c. The reaction will be spontaneous regardless of the magnitudes of H o and S o . d. The reaction cannot be spontaneous. e. The reaction will be spontaneous only of G o is positive. 7. Which of the following is TRUE for an operating voltaic cell? a. G > 0 ; E = 0 b. G < 0 ; E < 0 c. G = 0 ; E > 0 d. G = 0 ; E = 0 e. G < 0 ; E > 0 8.
