    Answer:

    161376 kJ

    Explanation:

    The equation for standard Gibbs energy free energy for a reaction is –

    ΔG⁰ = ΔH⁰ – TΔS⁰

    The values of ΔH⁰, T and ΔS⁰ are given in the question as

    ΔH⁰ = -2256 kJ

    T = 298 K

    ΔS⁰ = -549.1 kJ

    So, putting these values in the above equation we get

    ΔG⁰ = -2256 – (-549.1 × 298)

    ΔG⁰ = -2256 + 163631.8 = 161375.8 ≈ 161376 kJ

    Thus, the standard Gibbs free energy for the reaction mentioned in the question will be 161376 kJ.
