State all assumptions (e.g. ideal gas etc).

Given the followin skeletal reaction for the combustion of hydrogen to generate water using the tables attached to the test: 2H??2(g) + O2(g) ----> 2H2O(g)

(a) Determine the Î"HO, Î"So, and Î"Go for the above reaction at 298 Kelvin at 1 bar pressure.

(b) Justify and compare how a change (rise and drop) in temperature will affect how spontaneous the reaction will become. Also, at what temperature will the Î"S of the universe equal zero for this reaction?

Given the following skeletal reaction for the combustion of hydrogen to generate water and using tables of standard thermodynamic data:

2H2(g) + O2(g) ----> 2H2O(g)

(a) Determine the Ho, So, and Go for the above reaction at 298 Kelvin at 1 bar pressure.

(b) Justify and compare how a change (rise and drop) in temperature will affect how spontaneous the reaction will become. Also, at what temperature will the S of the universe equal zero for this reaction?
The relevant thermodynamic data, rounded to the nearest 10, are:

Quantity (Units) H2(g) O2(g) H2O(g)
fHO (kJ mol-1) 0 0 -240
SOm (J mol-1 K-1) 130 210 190
fGO (kJ mol-1) 0 0 -230

The standard enthalpy, entropy, and free energy changes of the reaction are calculated using the values from the table and the stoichiometric coefficients from the balanced chemical reaction:

where arxn is the stoichiometric coefficient for a given ...
