for the reaction to generate 2‐phosphoglycerate (2PG) from 3‐phosphoglycerate (3PG, ΔG = 0.83 kJ/mol; ΔGo’ = 4.4 kJ/mol. (R = 8.31 x 10‐3 kJ•K‐1•mol‐1)

a)What is the ratio of 3PG:2PG in cells at 37C? I got 5.52 as answer for this part but i dont understand part b

equation I used for part a was: ΔGo’= -RT. K

b)Considering your result, is the reaction under cellular conditions favoring the formation of 3PG or
the formation of 2PG?
