Question: Consider the reaction 2POCl3 g 2PCl3 g O2 g a Calculate Go

Consider the reaction 2POCl3(g) → 2PCl3(g) + O2(g)
a. Calculate ΔGo for this reaction. The ΔGof values for POCl3(g) and PCl3(g) are –502 kJ/ mol and –270. kJ/ mol, respectively.
b. Is this reaction spontaneous under standard conditions at 298 K?
c. The value of ΔSo for this reaction is 179 J/K. At what temperatures is this reaction spontaneous at standard conditions? Assume that ΔHo and ΔSo do not depend on temperature.
