If a reaction occurs readily but has an endothermic heat of reaction, what must be the driving force for the reaction?

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

The driving force for the reaction should be determined, if the reaction is endothermic Concept Introduction:

For spontaneous reaction, Gibbs free energy is negative. The relationship between Gibbs free energy and enthalpy is ΔG=ΔHTΔS

As per the statement, reaction is an endothermic reaction, so its enthalpy sign is positive.

Explanation

To get the negative value of Gibbs free energy TΔS
