equilibrium concentration from thermodynamic data

For the reaction:
A (aq) + B (aq) <----> C (aq)
you find the following thermodynamic data:
the standard reaction enthalpy, (delta Hr^0)= 9.629 kJ/mol
the standard reaction entropy, (delta Sr^0)= 16.66 J/(mol K)

Say, you prepared a mixture with initial concentrations [A]0=[B]0= 1 mol/L, and [C]0 = 0, and waited until the mixture reaches equilibrium. Predict [C] in this mixture. (in mol/L)

Solution Summary

The solution explains in detail how to calculate the equilibrium concentration of the chemical using the thermodynamic data, deltaS, deltaH, deltaG, and equilibrium constant.
