1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data consider the decomposition of calcium carbonate: CaCO3(s) yields CaO(s) + CO2(g) a) calculate delta H and delta S from standard thermodynamic data. b) calculate delta G at 25.0C 2. Relevant equations G = H - TS 3. The attempt at a solution i added up all the thermodynamic data and got -2236 KJ/mol now this is the delta G but for (a) im not given a temperature(is it 25C) and i have to solve for two variables. not sure what to do.
1. list Hf values for CaCO3, CaO, CO2 (-1207,-635,-394 kJ/mole) (this is at 25C, 1 atm) 2. H(reaction)=SUM(r*Hf), where r= reaction-coefficient= negative for reactants) 3. similar for entropy. 4. use G=H-TS for the calculation of G(reaction)
Delta H and Delta S Values: http://chemtables.tk/ (click Entropy and Enthalpy Tab) Use Products - Reactants with the values on the website above to determine the overall delta H and delta S. (Values for Products) - (Values for Reactants) Then, once you have delta S and delta H, you can use the formula you provided above to find delta G. You can also verify that your delta G is correct by using the values in the chart to see if you come out with the same answer. Make sure that you keep your values consistent! Entropy is often in J/mol while the others are in kJ/mol.
