# Gibbs Free Energy Practice

```Gibb’s Free Energy
For the following equations:
a. Determine 𝛥H and state if reactions is Enthalpically Favorable or Disfavorable
b. Determine 𝛥S and state if reactions is Entropically Favorable or Disfavorable
c. Determine 𝛥G at room temperature, T=298K and state if the reaction is exothermic or
endothermic
