nosplit "Thermodynamic potential" words: 169
TODO understand more intuitively how that determines if a reaction happens or not.
$$ΔG=ΔH−TΔS (1)$$
At least from the formula we see that:
• the more exothermic, the more likely it is to occur
• if the entropy increases, the higher the temperature, the more likely it is to occur
• otherwise, the lower the temperature the more likely it is to occur
A prototypical example of reaction that is exothermic but does not happen at any temperature is combustion.
