G vs. H

G vs. H

In this video, we focus our attention to the relation between Gibbs free energy G and enthalpy.

Gibbs free energy and enthalpy are closely related. If one has experimental data such as Gibbs free energy change versus temperature, the enthalpy change can be obtained from the ∆G/T vs. 1/T curve. The slope of ∆G/T vs. 1/T curve is ∆H. We will mathematically derive this relation.
