Temperature at Equilibrium

Find the Celcius temperature at which the reaction N2O4(g) <-> 2NO2(g) will be in equilibrium when both gasses are present at partial pressures of 1.00 atm.
DeltaH degree(25 degree C) DeltaGdegree(25 degree C)
NO2(g) 33.85 KJ/mol 51.8 KJ/mol
N2O4 9.66 KJ/mol 98.29 KJ/mol

Hello,

1) Calculate the delta G for the reaction @ 298.15 K:
2(51.8) - (98.29) = 5.31 kJ

2) Calculate the delta H for the reaction @ 298.15 K:
2(33.85) - (9.66) = 58.04 ...

Solution Summary

The solution provides step-by-step calculations for finding the temperature at which a reaction between two gases will be in equilibrium.
