1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 2 H2(g) + O2(g) 2 H2O(l) K = 1.28e83 As temperature increases, does the maximum amount of work obtained from the fuel cell reaction increase, decrease, or remain the same? 2. Relevant equations 1. G = -RTln(K) 2. dG = dH - tdS 3. w_max = dG 3. The attempt at a solution Okay, using formation values, I calculated that for this reaction, both dH and dS are < 0. If dG = w_max (eq. 3), then w_max = -RT ln K (1 and 3) Since ln(K) is positive, the larger the T, the more negative w_max. Thus, as T increases, w_work decreases? Is that right? Thanks.
