How does temperature affect the spontaneity of a reaction?
Spontaneity depends on the sign of
There are three possible situations:
#ΔG < 0#, the reaction is spontaneous in the forward direction.
#ΔG = 0#, the reaction is at equilibrium.
#ΔG > 0#, the reaction is not spontaneous in the forward direction, but it is spontaneous in the reverse direction.
The value of
#color(blue)(bar(ul(|color(white)(a/a)ΔG = ΔH - TΔScolor(white)(a/a)|)))" "#
Now, we have four possible situations, depending on the signs of
