Since G = -RTlnK, at equilibrium where G=0, ln K = 0, K = 1. AP Example - 1993 2 C 4 H 10 ( g ) + 13 O 2 ( g )  8 CO 2 ( g ) + 10 H 2 O( l ) The reaction represented above is spontaneous at 25°C. Assume that all reactants and products are in their standard state. a. Predict the sign of Δ S ° for the reaction and justify your prediction. b. What is the sign of Δ G ° for the reaction? How would the sign and magnitude of Δ G ° be affected by an increase in temperature to 50°C? Explain your answer. c. What must be the sign of Δ H ° for the reaction at 25°C? How does the total bond energy of the reactants compare to that of the products? d. When the reactants are place together in a container, no change is observed even though the reaction is known to be spontaneous. Explain this observation.

How would the sign and magnitude of Δ G ° be affected by an increase in temperature to 50°C? Explain your answer. a) S < 0 ; more gas particles in the reactants, therefore there is less entropy in the products b) G < 0 since it is spontaneous at the given temperature. Raising the temperature to 50 o C will make G less negative (since S<0).

How does the total bond energy of the reactants compare to that of the products? d. When the reactants are place together in a container, no change is observed even though the reaction is known to be spontaneous. Explain this observation. c. H is negative; bond energy of the reactants at greater than the products. d. A catalyst is needed since the energy of activation is high. Homework – DUE Tuesday, April 9th 1.
