43. Match the Column I with Column II

Column I

Column II

A. Equilibrium

1. G>0, K<1

B. Spontaneous  reaction

2. G=0

C. Non-spontaneous reaction

3. G=0

 

4. G<0, K>1


A.(2,3) B.(4) C.(1)
A. G(G) is 0, reaction has achieved equilibrium: at this point, there is no longer any free energy left to drive the reaction.
B. If G<0, then K>1 which implies a spontaneous reaction or the reaction which proceeds in the forward direction to such an extent that the products are present predominantly.
C. If G>0, then K<1, which implies a non-spontaneous reaction or a reaction which proceeds in the forward direction to such a small degree that only a very minute quantity of product is formed.
