Free Energy Changes in Glycolysis

Free Energy changes in glycolysis.

a) Which three reactions are irreversible? What does this mean?
b) The other seven reactions are near equilibrium. Explain how this diagram reflects this.

Please see attached for the full question (ignore question 7.)


Solution Preview

Gibbs Free Energy tells us that:

delta G < 0, the reaction is spontaneous and favors the products.
delta G = 0, the reaction is at equilibrium.
delta > ...

Solution Summary

This solution is provided in 111 words. It mentions Gibbs Free Energy and uses this to discus the reversibility or irriversibility of the reaction, as well as whether the reactions are at equilibrium or not.
