14 Discuss the role of temperature in influencing the spontaneity of a chemical reaction.

Step 1

One of the conditions for a process should be a spontaneous is that the value of Gibbs free energy has to be negative.

The equation connecting Gibbs free energy, enthalpy, entropy and temperature is

Step 2

Spontaneity at low temperatures:

A reaction with delta H being negative and delta S being negative become spontaneous at low tempe...
