1. Explanation:

Reaction quotient is defined as the ratio of the concentration of the products and reactants of a reaction at any point of time with respect to some unit. It is represented by the symbol Q.

The ratio of the concentration of products and reactants of a reaction in equilibrium with respect to some unit is said to be equilibrium constant expression. It is represented by the symbol K.

The relationship between Gibbs free energy change and reaction quotient of the reaction is: ……(1)

where, = Gibbs free energy change = Standard Gibbs free energy change

R = Gas constant

T = Temperature

At equilibrium, the free energy change of the reaction becomes 0 and standard Gibbs free energy change can be related to the equilibrium constant by the equation: …(2)
