Calculate the equilibrium pressures that result if 1.00 mole of A(g) at 1.00 atm and 1.00 mole of B(g) at 1.00 atm are mixed at 25°C.c. Show by calculations that ∆G = 0 at equilibrium.

(a)

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation: The representation of a system at 25°C is given. The answers are to be calculated for the given options.

Concept introduction: Equilibrium constant, K , is the measure of concentration of reactants and products of a system at equilibrium.

ΔG°=RTln(K)

To determine: The value of the equilibrium constant for the given reaction.

### Explanation of Solution

Given

Temperature is 25°C .

The value of ΔGA° is 8996J/mol .

The value of ΔGB° is 11,718J/mol .

The stated reaction is,

A(g)B(g)

Formula

The standard free energy change of stated reaction is calculated as,

ΔG°=ΔGB°ΔGA°

Where,

• ΔG° is the change in free energy of the given reaction.
• ΔGB° is the change in free energy of product.
• ΔGA° is the change in free energy of reactant.

Substitute the value of ΔGB° and ΔGA° in the above equation.

ΔG°=ΔGB°ΔGA°=11,718J/mol8996J/mol=2772J/mol_

Given

Temperature is 25°C .

The change in free energy of the given reaction is 2772J/mol
