Problem 62

The U.S. government requires automobile fuels to contain a renewable component. Fermentation of glucose from corn yields ethanol, which is added to gasoline to fulfill this requirement:
$$\mathrm{C}_{6} \mathrm{H}_{12} \mathrm{O}_{6}(s) \longrightarrow 2 \mathrm{C}_{2} \mathrm{H}_{5} \mathrm{OH}(l)+2 \mathrm{CO}_{2}(g)$$
Calculate $\Delta H^{\circ}, \Delta S^{\circ},$ and $\Delta G^{\circ}$ for the reaction at $25^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ . Is the spontaneity of this reaction dependent on $T ?$ Explain.
