∆G is the difference between what two states
« on: April 12, 2022, 11:51:05 AM »
∆G= ∆G° + RTlnQ

Does ∆G in the above equation represent the difference in free energy between a starting point of Q and an end point of K (equilibrium)?



Thanks, this has puzzled me for about 18 years.

Basically, yes.
