Gibbs Free Energy

Hard

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Hard of Chemistry

A chemist is studying a potential reaction for a new pharmaceutical product. The reaction is exothermic and results in an increase in entropy. According to the Gibbs Free Energy equation, under what conditions would this reaction be spontaneous, and how would a change in temperature influence the spontaneity of the reaction?
a.
This exothermic reaction that results in an increase in entropy would be spontaneous under normal conditions. However, changes in temperature would not influence the spontaneity of the reaction.
b.
This exothermic reaction that results in an increase in entropy would be spontaneous under normal conditions. An increase in temperature would make the reaction more spontaneous, while a decrease in temperature would make it less spontaneous.
c.
This exothermic reaction that results in an increase in entropy would not be spontaneous under normal conditions. An increase in temperature would make the reaction less spontaneous, while a decrease in temperature would make it more spontaneous.
d.
This exothermic reaction that results in an increase in entropy would be spontaneous under normal conditions. An increase in temperature would make the reaction less spontaneous, while a decrease in temperature would make it more spontaneous.
e.
This exothermic reaction that results in an increase in entropy would not be spontaneous under normal conditions. An increase in temperature would make the reaction more spontaneous, while a decrease in temperature would make it less spontaneous.

During the research to develop new sustainable thermal systems, a group of scientists monitors a specific chemical reaction under different temperature and pressure conditions. The function of Gibbs free energy, represented by G = H - TS, allows scientists to evaluate the spontaneity of this reaction. H is the enthalpy, T is the temperature in Kelvin, and S is the entropy of the system. Consider the following data: H = -30 kJ/mol, S = -80 J/mol·K, temperature of 330 K, and pressure of 1 atm. a) Calculate the Gibbs free energy of this reaction at this temperature. b) Determine if the reaction is spontaneous or not at this temperature. c) If it is not spontaneous, what change should be made to the temperature to make it spontaneous, increase or decrease?

Imagine that an industry is developing a new chemical process and, before investing in extensive production, the team of engineers needs to evaluate the thermodynamic feasibility of the reaction, considering the Gibbs free energy and the spontaneity of the process. The proposed reaction is the combustion of methane (CH4) in oxygen (O2) to form carbon dioxide (CO2) and water (H2O), at a temperature of 298 K and a pressure of 1 atmosphere. a) Write the balanced chemical equation for the combustion of methane. b) Calculate the change in Gibbs free energy (őĒG) for this reaction, using the standard values of the formation energies of the substances involved. Consider the following standard formation energy values (őĒH¬įf) at 298 K: CH4 = -74.8 kJ/mol, O2 = 0 kJ/mol, CO2 = -393.5 kJ/mol, H2O = -285.8 kJ/mol. Based on the calculated value, is the reaction spontaneous or not? c) Using the concepts of endothermic and exothermic processes, classify the reaction and, with the help of digital technologies, propose a prototype that can harness the thermal energy released in the process.

Imagine that a scientist is investigating the reactivity of various types of reactions in his laboratory. He is working with a series of experiments involving synthesis, double displacement, decomposition, and single displacement reactions. a) Differentiate each of the mentioned reaction types and describe their formation in general terms. b) The scientist uses metallic calcium (Ca) and water as reactants in one of the experiments. Determine the type of reaction that occurs between calcium and water, write the balanced chemical equation for this reaction, and identify the products formed. c) In another experiment, he mixes barium sulfate (BaSO4) and sodium nitrate (NaNO3) in aqueous solution. Identify the type of reaction that occurs in this case, write the balanced chemical equation, and predict the products formed.
