The following equation represents the decomposition of a generic diatomic element in its standard state.
1/2*x^2(g) -----> X(g)
Assume that the standard molar Gibbs energy of formation of X(g) is 5.62 kJ·mol–1 at 2000. K and –61.94 kJ·mol–1 at 3000. K. Determine the value of K (the thermodynamic equilibrium constant) at each temperature.
At 2000. K, we were given: ΔGf = 5.62 kJ·mol–1. What is K at that temperature?
At 3000. K, we were given: ΔGf = –61.94 kJ·mol–1. What is K at that temperature?
