4. 4) 0.64, - 5.71 and -14.29

Solution:

$$In\frac{k_{2}}{k_{1}}=\frac{\Delta H^{0}}{R}\left \{ \frac{1}{T_{1}}-\frac{1}{T_{2}} \right \}$$

$$In(10)=\frac{\Delta H^{0}}{R}\left \{ \frac{1}{298}-\frac{1}{373} \right \}$$

$$\frac{373\times 298\times 8.314\times 2.303}{75}=\Delta H^{0}=28.37 kjmol^{-1}$$

∆G0T1 = –RT1ln(K1) = –298R ln(10) = –5.71 kJ mol–1

∆G0T2= –RT2ln(K2) = –373R ln(100)
