Graphing Calculator
Calculating the Gibbs-Energy Change

The graphing calculator can run a program
that calculates the Gibbs-energy change,
given the temperature, $T$ , change in enthalpy
$\Delta H,$ and change in entropy, $\Delta S .$ Given that
the temperature is 298 $\mathrm{K}$ , the change in
enthalpy is 131.3 $\mathrm{kJ} / \mathrm{mol}$ , and the change in
entropy is $0.134 \mathrm{kJ} /(\mathrm{mol} \cdot \mathrm{K}),$ you can calculate Gibbs-energy change in kilojoules per
mole. Then use the program to make calculations.
