Re^4: Lower Intermediate Energy

benjoe rey

Hi Sanya,

It's actually a theoretical model of an experiment done in gas phase at high temperatures. Sadly, this rules out solvation. About dG, I think you are right since right now I haven't really imposed the actual experimental temperature yet and my results are still at zero Kelvin. It's because of the effect of the systems change in entropy right? So. . . This is so far. . .acceptable. . .right?(please say yes..T_T)

Anyways, thank you very much for sticking up with me. I really do appreciate it.
