#### Solution Preview

The relationship between the free energy change (DG) and the equilibrium concentration ratio (K) is:

DG = -RT ln K

T = absolute temperature. 298 K is standard but 310 K is ...

#### Solution Summary

Answer is found using the formula DG = -RT ln K, representing the relationship between the free energy change (DG) and the equilibrium concentration ratio (K).
