Homework Help: Esimating delta S and delta H frim temp and Kb

  1. Nov 21, 2006 #1
    The relationship between free energy and the equilibrium constant is

    Go = -RT ln K

    By measuring the pH at various temperatures, the Kb for NH3(aq) was found to be temperature dependent, yielding the following values:

    temperature (K) Kb
    283 1.34 X 10-5
    293 1.42 X 10-5
    303 1.50 X 10-5

    Over moderate temperature ranges (ranges less than 100 K degrees) both deltaSo and deltaHo can be considered approximately temperature independent. By plotting the available information appropriately, obtain estimates for deltaSo and delayHo for the reaction:


    ok so i figured out that my y=mx+b equation should loook lik:

    lnKb=delta H/R(gas constnt) - delta S/r

    bbut what is my x axis and y axis?



    ok so i figured out that my y=mx+b equation should loook lik:

    lnKb=delta H/R(gas constnt) - delta S/r

    delat g=delta H-Temp(delta S)
