## Question:

Calculate the change in Gibbs free energy for each of the following sets of delta Hdegree rxn, delta S degreerxn, and T.

Part A delta H degree rxn=- 130 kJ ; delta S degree rxn= 255 J/K ; T= 307 K

Part B delta H degree rxn= 130 kJ ; delta S degree rxn=- 255 J/K ; T= 307 K

Part C delta H degree rxn=- 130 kJ ; delta S degree rxn=- 255 J/K ; T= 307 K

Part D delta H degree rxn=- 130 kJ ; delta S degree rxn=- 255 J/K ; T= 557 K

Predict whether or not the reaction in all parts will be spontaneous at the temperature indicated.

## Gibbs Free Energy Change

Gibbs free energy change is used to identify whether a given reaction is spontaneous or non-spontaneous at a particular temperature. The negative value of Gibbs energy change indicates that the reaction is spontaneous.
