# Spontaneity, Entropy, and Free Energy Spontaneity, Entropy, and Free Energy CHAPTER 16 1st Law of Thermodynamics The first law of thermodynamics is a statement of the law of conservation of energy: energy can neither be created nor destroyed. The energy of the universe is constant, but the various forms of energy can be interchanged in physical and chemical processes. 1st law does not give a hint as to WHY a

process occurs in a given direction. Spontaneous Processes and Entropy Thermodynamics lets us predict whether a process will occur but gives no information about the amount of time required for the process. A spontaneous process is one that occurs without outside intervention. SPONTANEOUS DOES NOT MEAN FAST! Tells us the information about the direction of the reaction AP exam wants you to use the phrase thermodynamically favorable Kinetics & Thermodynamics

Chemical kinetics focuses on the pathway between reactants and products--the kinetics of a reaction depends upon activation energy, temperature, concentration, and catalysts. Thermodynamics only considers the initial and final states. To describe a reaction fully, both kinetics and thermodynamics are Domain of

thermodynamics (the initial and final states) 16_343 Energy Domain of kinetics (the reaction pathway) Reactants Products Reaction progress

The rate of a reaction depends on the pathway from reactants to products. Thermodynamics tells whether the reaction is thermodynamically favorable and depends upon initial & final states only. Entropy The driving force for a spontaneous process is an increase in the entropy of the universe. Entropy, S, can be viewed as a measure of randomness, or disorder. Nature spontaneously proceeds toward the states that have the highest probabilities of existing.

Think of your bedroomit naturally tends to get messy. An ordered room requires everything to be in its placeThere are many more ways for things to be out of place than in Entropy Entropy is a thermodynamic function that describes the number of arrangements (positions and/or energy levels) that are available to a system existing in a system Is closely linked to probability Think of the expansion of an ideal gas, more possibility of it being spread out than

concentrated in one area 16_349 The expansion of an ideal gas into an evacuated bulb. Positional Entropy A gas expands into a vacuum because the expanded state has the highest positional probability of states available to the system. Therefore, S solid

< Sliquid << Sgas Positional Entropy Which of the following has higher positional entropy? a) Solid CO2 or gaseous CO2? b) N2 gas at 1 atm or N2 gas at 1.0 x 10-2 atm? Entropy What is the sign of the entropy change

for the following? a) Solid sugar is added to water to form a solution? S is positive b) Iodine vapor condenses on a cold surface to form crystals? S is negative SUniverse Suniverse is positive -- reaction is spontaneous. Suniverse is negative -- reaction is

spontaneous in the reverse direction. Suniverse = 0 -- reaction is at equilibrium. Concept Check 14 Predict the sign of S for each of the following, and explain: + a) The evaporation of alcohol b) The freezing of water c) Compressing an ideal gas at constant temperature + d) Heating an ideal gas at constant pressure + e) Dissolving NaCl in water

The Second Law of Thermodynamics . . . in any spontaneous process there is always an increase in the entropy of the universe. Suniv > 0 for a spontaneous process. Second Law of Thermodynamics 16

In any spontaneous process there is always an increase in the entropy of the universe. The entropy of the universe is increasing. The total energy of the universe is constant, but the entropy is increasing. Suniverse = SSsystem + SSsurroundings Copyright Cengage Learning.

(EXOTHERMIC) Ssurr is negative -- heat flows out of the surroundings and into the system. (ENDOTHERMIC)

Signs of Entropy Changes Process Spontaneous? Ssys Ssurr Suniv Yes

No (reaction will occur in opposite direction)

Yes, if Ssys has a larger magnitude than Ssurr Yes, if Ssurr has a larger magnitude than Ssys G -- Free Energy

Two tendencies exist in nature: tendency toward higher entropy -- S tendency toward lower energy -- H If the two processes oppose each other (e.g. melting ice cube), then the direction is decided by the Free Energy, G, and depends upon the temperature. Free Energy G = H TS (from the standpoint of the system) A process (at constant T, P) is

spontaneous in the direction in which free energy decreases: Gsys means +Suniv Entropy changes in the surroundings are primarily determined by the heat flow. An exothermic process in the system increases the entropy of the surroundings. G, H, & S Thermodynamically favored, Spontaneous reactions are indicated by the following signs: G = negative H = negative

S = positive Temperature Dependence Ho & So are not temperature dependent. Go is temperature dependent. G = H TS Free Energy G G = H TS G = negative -- spontaneous G = positive -- spontaneous in opposite direction G = 0 -- at equilibrium

Predict the signs of: w (gas expanding) q + (endothermic process) H

+ (endothermic process) S + (going from liquid to gas) Ssurr G ( -H/T, H is positive) 0 (H favors reverse process, S favors forward process; these tendencies will exactly balance out at boiling point, and system will be at equilbrium) Explain your answers. Concept Check Gas A2 reacts with gas B2 to form gas AB at constant temperature and pressure. The bond

energy of AB is much greater than that of either reactant. Predict the signs of: Ssurr + S H + Explain. Suniv 0 Since the average bond energy of the products is greater than the average bond energies of the reactants, the reaction is

exothermic as written. Thus, the sign of H is negative; Ssurr is positive; S is close to zero (cannot tell for sure); and Suniv is positive. Boiling Point Calculations What is the normal boiling point for liquid Br2? Br2(l) ---> Br2(g) Ho = 31.0 kJ/mol & So = 93.0 J/Kmol At equilibrium, Go = 0 Goo = Ho 0 TS0 = 0

The Third Law of Thermodynamics . . . the entropy of a perfect crystal at 0 K is zero. Because S is explicitly known (= 0) at 0 K, S values at other temps can be calculated. See Appendix 4 for values of S0. Standard Entropy Values (S) Represent the increase in entropy that occurs when a substance is heated from 0 K to 298 K at 1 atm pressure.

thermodynamically unstable. Free Energy Change and Chemical Reactions G = standard free energy change that occurs if reactants in their standard state are converted to products in their standard state. G = npGf(products) nrGf(reactants) The more negative the value of G, the further a reaction will go to the right to reach equilibrium. Go & Temperature Go depends upon temperature.

If a reaction must be carried out at temperatures higher than 25 o C, then Go must be recalculated from the Ho & So values for the reaction. Thermodynamics & Kinetics A reaction may be favorable thermodynamically, but scientists need to study the kinetics of the reaction to see if it will proceed at a fast enough rate to be useful Free Energy & Pressure

The equilibrium position represents the lowest free energy value available to a particular system (reaction). G is pressure dependent S is pressure dependent H is not pressure dependent Free Energy and Pressure G = G + RT ln(P) or G = G + RT ln(Q) Q = reaction quotient from the law of mass action.

increases for endothermic reactions. Free Energy & Work The maximum possible useful work obtainable from a process at constant temperature and pressure is equal to the change in free energy: wmax = G Reversible vs. Irreversible Processes Reversible: The universe is exactly the same as it was before the cyclic process. Irreversible: The universe is different

after the cyclic process. All real processes are irreversible -- (some work is changed to heat). w < G Work is changed to heat in the surroundings and the entropy of the universe increases. Laws of Thermodynamics First Law: You cant win, you can only break even. Second Law: You cant break even. Thermodynamically Unfavorable Processes that readily

occur Light or electricity may be used to cause a process to occur that is thermodynamically unfavorable Examples: Charging a battery, process of electrolysis (next chapter) Photosynthesis

Rxn has a G0 of +2880 kJ/mol but light helps the multistep process occur through the absorption of several photons in the Visible Spectrum range (400-700 nm) Coupling Reactions may also lead to reactions that are not thermodynamically Thermodynamically unfavorable reaction can be driven by a favorable reaction Review Free Energy Change The free energy change (G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy available to do work. Standard free energy change G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go is when reaction conditions are standard: T is

250 C, P = 1 atm, and conc of all reactants is 1M. For biochemical reactions, the pH has to be 7. The standard free energy change at pH 7 is designated as G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G = Gproducts Greactants If G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G <0 , the forward reaction is favored relative to the reverse reaction. The products are more stable than the reactants. As reaction proceeds, energy is released, it can be used to do work If G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G = 0, reactants and products are at equilibrium If G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G >0, reactants are at lower energy than products; energy needs to be supplied for the reaction to proceed.

Thermodynamically unfavorable reaction can be driven by a favorable reaction G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go is directly dependent on the equilibrium constant K eq. For a reaction: A + B C +D G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G = G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go + RT. ln [C] [D]/[A] [B] G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G depends on the nature of the reactants (expressed in the G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G o term) as well as the concentration of the reactant and products At equilibrium, G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy G = 0, and Keq = [C] [D]/[A] [B]

G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go = - RT.ln Keq or G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go = - 2.303 RT log Keq since R= 1.987 x 10-3 kcal.mol-1.deg-1 and T = 298K, G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go = - 1.36 log Keq or Keq = 10 G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go /1.36 Thermodynamically unfavorable reaction can be driven by a favorable reaction Two or more reactions can be coupled when one or more products of one reaction are reactants of the next reaction. When multiple reactions are coupled, it becomes a pathway. A pathway must satisfy minimally two criteria:

The individual reactions must be specific, yielding only one particular product or set of products. The entire set of reactions in a pathway must be thermodynamically favored An important thermodynamic fact: the overall free energy change for a chemically coupled series of reactions is equal to the sum of the free Bindividual +C G0 = + 5 kcal mol-1 energy changes ofAthe steps BD G0 = - 8 kcal mol-1 ******************************* AC+D

G0 = - 3 kcal mol-1 Thus, a thermodynamically unfavorable reaction can be driven by a ATP is the universal currency of free energy Metabolism is facilitated by the use of a common energy currency, ATP. Part of the free energy derived from the oxidation of foodstuffs and from light is transformed into ATP - the energy currency. ATP: The role of ATP in energy metabolism is paramount! Nucleotide consisting of an adenine, a ribose, and a triphosphate unit Is an energy rich molecule

triphosphate unit contains 2 phosphoanhydride bonds. A large amount of free energy is liberated when ATP is hydrolyzed to ADP & Pi, or ATP to AMP & PPi Under typical cellular conditions, the kcal actual for these -1 ATP + H G0 = -7.3 molG 2O ADP + Pi hydrolysis is approximately -12 kcal mol-1 ATP + H2O AMP + PPi

G0 = -10.9 kcal mol-1 Adenine Ribose Phosphate units ATP hydrolysis drives metabolism by shifting the equilibrium of coupled reactions Thermodynamically unfavorable reactions can proceed when coupled with ATP hydrolysis. For example: A

B G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go = 4 kcal.mol-1, Keq = 10 G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go /1.36 then Keq = 1.15 x 10-3 and equilibrium is reached at very low [B]. If this reaction is coupled to another reaction that has a very low (negative) G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go, then overall G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go of coupled reaction is lowered such that Keq is increased significantly. Biochemical reactions are usually coupled to the hydrolysis of ATP: ATP

ADP + Pi G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go= -7.3 kcal.mol-1 Overall G) of a chemical process is a measure of the energy Go = 4 + (-7.3) = -3.3 kcal.mol-1 Overall Keq = [B] /[A] x [ADP][Pi]/[ATP] = 267 In the cell, [ATP]/[ADP][Pi] is maintained at 500 M-1, therefore Keq = [B] /[A] x (1/500) =267 or [B]/[A] = 267 x 500 = 1.34 x 105 Coupling with 1 ATP changed equilibrium ratio by a factor of about 108. For nATPs it changes by 108n Example Glycolysis (breaking down glucose) Protein Synthesis Contraction / Relaxation of Muscles Relaxed muscle + energy contracted muscle ATP + H2O ADP + P + energy
