If a reaction A <-> B has a value of dG°>0, then I know that A -> B is endergonic while A <- B is exergonic.
Now if I start with 100% B I could see how equilibrium is reached, B reacts to A until it reaches the stable situation (for whatever temperature/pressure we're in).
If I start with 100% A however, I would say nothing would happen, but if that's the case then this situation is already stable, so how can the equilibrium still be the same as the previous situation (since concentrations don't alter K)?
And even then, I know that that's not how it works (with only the exergonic direction working until equilibrium), because the equilibrium is reached when both reaction rates are equal, and that means that the endergonic reaction does indeed work at all time. Even in the first case in fact there's A reacting to B all the time, even though it's endergonic.
So I guess my question ultimately is: where does the energy come from?
(Silly thought: it doesn't take the energy from the exergonic way to "power" the endergonic way right? That would make every reaction be a net 0, and would also block the situation with 100% A at the start)
