### How to derive the relation between gibbs energy and equilibrium constant?

The Boltzmann equation is actually derived from an entropy and energy argument. I think Banjaminson does a decent job, but I'll provide a brief overview as it's relevant. Assume that we have some ...

### What is the difference between standard Gibbs energy and Gibbs energy of formation?

Here are the two definitions again: $$\Delta G_{Rx} = \Delta G_f^{products} - \Delta G_f^{reactants}\tag{1}$$ $$\Delta G^o_{Rx} = \sum_i s_i \Delta G_{f,i}^o \tag{2}$$ What exactly is the difference ...

### Non-Constant Pressure and Temperature Processes - Gibbs Energy as Equilibrium Condition

This answer was deleted with no explanation. I am resubmitting trusting the moderator will explain the problem. As you finally seem to conclude when equilibrium is attained T, P, and activities of all ...

### Why is more work done for a reversible process?

You're right to be confused. The diagram you show is neither a proof nor an intuitive explanation. It can't be a proof because the statement "reversible processes do more work than irreversible ...
