hey i seem to be having a lot of trouble with this type of question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculate the change in Gibbs energy of 35g of ethanol (mass density = 0.789g cm-3) when the pressure is increased isothermally from 1 atm to 3000 atm.

in my notes i have that dG=V(Pf-Pi) and search up on the net that mass=volume*density so volume of ethanol comes to 35/.789 the answer is suppose to be 10.4kJ but i get nowhere near it.

dG=(35/.789)*(3000-1) is this the right equation because thats all i can find

pls help me! thanks
