2. For folding of a β-hairpin peptide, ΔH° = 7 kJ/mol and ΔS° = 25 J/mol·K at 298 K (data from Maynard et al., J. Am. Chem. Soc. 1998, vol. 120, pp. 1996-2007).
A) At 298 K, would you expect to find the peptide mostly folded, somewhat folded, equally likely to be folded or unfolded, somewhat unfolded, or mostly unfolded?
B) At 298 K, are the energetics of peptide folding driven mainly by enthalpy changes, entropy changes, or both?
