96 g
37 g
84 g

2. Calculate the equilibrium constant for the decomposition of water, 2H2O(l) 2H2(g) + O2(g) at 25oC, given that G (H2O(l)) = -237.2 kJ/mol.

6.3 × 10-84
2.5 × 10-24
1.6 × 1083

3. The equilibrium constant at 427oC for the reaction N2(g) + 3H2(g) 2NH3(g) is
Kp = 9.4 × 10-5. Calculate the value of Go for the reaction under these conditions.
