Homework Help: Physical Chemistry

Calculate the equilibrium constant at 25°C and at 100.°C for each of the following reactions, using data available in Appendix 2A. Remember that the organic molecules are in a separate section behind the organic molecules in Appendix 2A.
(a) HgO(s) Hg(l) + O2(g)
at 25°C
Found to be 5.47E-11 which is correct
at 100.°C

(b) propene (C3H6, g) cyclopropane (C3H6, g)
at 25°C
Found to be 5E-8 which is correct
at 100.°C

I used text to find the Gibbs of formation for each reactant & product to find the Gibbs of reaction. I then used G=-RTlnK to solve for K. I was successful in solving for K for the 25°C temps in both cases, but for some reason the 100.°C answers were incorrect. I thought I only had to plug in the new temp (as 373K) into the equation??
