The value of ΔG° for the phosphorylation of glucose in glycolysis is 13.8 kJ/mol.


What is the value of the equilibrium constant for the reaction at 25.0°C?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Thermodynamic is the branch of chemistry that mainly deals with the heat transfer between system and surroundings. Here system is the substance for which the heat content is studied and remaining part of universe is consider as the surroundings.

Step 2

The heat content of any substance or reaction system can be expressed in terms of enthalpy whereas the randomness in the system is associated with the entropy of system.

Free energy is another thermodynamic quantity that is used to describe the work tendency of a thermodynamic system.

Step 3

The relation between free energy and equil...
