Homework Help: Strange delta G question

  1. Apr 30, 2012 #1

    Which best describes the delta G for hydrolysis of creatine phosphate under cellular conditions in which the concentration of creatine phosphate, creatine, and phosphate all equal 1 mM at 25 degrees C. The delta G naught for the hydrolysis of creatine phosphate at 25 degrees C is -43kJ/mol

    a) delta G < -43kJ/mol
    b) delta G = -43kJ/mol
    c) delta G > 0kJ/mol
    d) -43kJ/mol < delta G < 0 kJ/mol

    This was a question on my last biochem exam. I was so confused by this question, as were many of my classmates. My professor is quite possibly the worst I have encountered, and left us further confused when she tried to explain it. I got a high A on the exam, but I would be grateful if someone could explain this :)
