    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.
