Remember the Gibbs equation that relates delta H, delta G and delta S?

I'll use dH and dG and dS as abbreviations.

dG = dH - TdS

Now, at equilibrium, delta G is always = 0.


0 = dH - TdS

Let's rearrange the equation by adding TdS to each ...

Solution Summary

The solution calculates delta S for a reaction at two different temperatures. The delta G of the reaction at equilibrium is equal to zero.
