What is Gibbs Free Energy?
Gibbs energy was developed in the 1870’s by Josiah Willard Gibbs. He originally termed this energy as the “available energy” in a system. His paper published in 1873, “Graphical Methods in the Thermodynamics of Fluids,” outlined how his equation could predict the behavior of systems when they are combined. Denoted by G, Gibbs Free Energy combines enthalpy and entropy into a single value. The sign of ΔG indicates the direction of a chemical reaction and determine if a reaction is spontaneous or not. When ΔG<0 : reaction is spontaneous in the direction written (i.e., the reaction is exergonic), when ΔG=0 : the system is at equilibrium and there is no net change either in forward or reverse direction and when ΔG>0 : reaction is not spontaneous and the process proceeds spontaneously in the reserve direction.
How to Calculate Gibbs Free Energy?
Gibbs Free Energy calculator uses Gibbs Free Energy = Enthalpy-Temperature*Entropy to calculate the Gibbs Free Energy, Gibbs Free Energy is a thermodynamic potential that can be used to calculate the maximum of reversible work that may be performed by a thermodynamic system at a constant temperature and pressure. Gibbs Free Energy is denoted by G symbol.
