Under what conditions is dG 0 a condition that defines the spontaneity of a process? 2. Under what condition is KP = Kx? 3. It is found that KP is independent of T for a particular chemical reaction. What does this tell you about the reaction? 4. Calculate G for the isothermal expansion of 2.50 mol of an ideal gas at 350 K from an initial pressure of 10.5 bar to a final pressure of 0.500 bar. 5. A sample containing 2.50 mol of an ideal gas at 298 K is expanded from an initial volume of 10.0 L to a final volume of 50.0 L.

Explain why G and A do or do not differ from one another. 6. Calculate reaction Greaction for the reaction CO(g) + 1/2 O2(g) CO2(g) at 298.15 K. Calculate reaction Greaction at 650 K assuming that reaction Hreaction is constant in the temperature interval of interest. 7. Consider the equilibrium C2H6(g) C2H4(g) + H2(g). At 1000 K and a constant total pressure of 1 atm, C2H6(g) is introduced into a reaction vessel. At equilibrium, the composition of the mixture in mole percent is H2(g): 26%, C2H4(g): 26%, and C2H6(g): 48%. 8. If the reaction Fe2N(s) + 3/2 H2(g) 2Fe(s) + NH3(g) comes to equilibrium at a total pressure of 1 atm, analysis of the gas shows that at 700 and 800 K,
