Consider the following reaction
occurring at 298 K: BaCO3(s)⇌BaO(s)+CO2(g)
A) Show that the reaction is not spontaneous under standard
conditions by calculating ΔG∘rxn.
B) If BaCO3 is placed in an evacuated flask, what partial pressure
of CO2 will be present when the reaction reaches equilibrium?
C) What temperature is required to produce a carbon dioxide partial
pressure of 1.0 atm?
