Help calculating equilibrium temperature for a reaction

  1. Aug 20, 2010 #1
    I am supposed to find out the adiabatic equilibrium temp. of a liquid phase hydrolysis reaction where the reactants are fed stoichometrically at 20 degrees Celsius. I know I need to find out the Keq for this reaction, but I have no idea how to go about calculating Keq without concentrations of products and reactants being given. I'm assuming there is a way to determine Keq with thermodynamic data but I have not been able to find out how to do so. Could anyone provide some insight?

    Keq is equal to [tex]e^{-\frac{\Delta G}{RT}}[/tex]. Just find [tex]\Delta G[/tex] by using a table of thermodynamic data.
