(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Calculate Delta G Degree for

2Mg_{(s)}+ O_{2(g)}-> 2MgO_{(s)}

2. Relevant equations

Delta G = (Delta G of products - Delta G of reactants)

3. The attempt at a solution

So according to my book's appendix, the dG of Mg is 0, the dG of O_{2}is 0, and the dG of MgO is -596.6. So I figured the equation would be:

(2*-596.6) - 0, and that was incorrect. Where am I going wrong?
