Unformatted text preview: Free Energies of Formation Note that Gof for an element = 0 G o = G of(products) - G of(reactants) H2O ( l ) H2O ( g ) Calculate G o at 298K. Is the process spontaneous at this temperature (when both reactants and products are in their standard states)? Example: B. Yes, as evidenced by the fact that a puddle of liquid water at 298 K will eventually disappear. A. No, because G o > 0 T = 298K 1:00 p.m. 2:00 p.m. 3:00 p.m. G = G o + R T ln Q At equilibrium, G = 0 G o = - R T ln Q eq [C] c [D] d [A] a [B] b Q eq = K eq G o = - R T ln K eq [C] c [D] d [A] a [B] b G Q K e q 1 G o G o > 0 K eq < 1 Reaction is reactant- favored = + = - P H2O = 1bar Liquid water G = G o T = 298K P H2O < 1bar = ( 0 29.
