Calcium carbonate will decompose when heated to produce calcium oxide and carbon dioxide as shown in the following reaction. CaCO3?(s)?CaO(s)+CO2?(g) Given that ?H?=177.5kJ/mol and ?G?=130.4kJ/mol at 25?C, above what minimum temperature will the reaction become spontaneous under standard state conditions? Hint: Assume ?H and ?S are independent of T Hint: Think about the value of ?G when a reaction goes from nonspontaneous to spontaneous. 1,123K321K127K401K3.9K
