  • Week 17 Learning Objectives:
    • Calculate the pressure dependence of free energy change for a chemical system

    • Know how equilibrium can be defined in terms of minimum free energy and calculate the value of K from deltaGĀ°.

    • Be able to relate work done to the change in free energy

    • Balance redox reactions via the half reaction method

    • Know the components of an electrochemical cell and distinguish between a galvanic and electrolytic cell
