What are the enthalpy, entropy, and free energy for the hydrogenation of ethene (C2H4) to ethane (C2H6) at 25 degrees. Is this a spontaneous process and how can you tell?

  • Chemistry -

    What do you need help with on this. I'm sure it isn't all of the problem.
    Write the equation and balance it.
    dHrxn = (n*dHf products)-(n*dHf reactants)
    dSrxn = (n*dSo products)-(n*dSo reactants)
    dGrxn = dHrxn -TdSrxn
    Spontaneity is when dG is negative.
