The formation constant AlF6^3- is 5.0 x 10^23. What is the standard free energy change for the process? ?
Full question: The formation constant for the formation of the complex ion AlF6^3- is 5.0 x 10^23. What is the standard free energy change for the process?
Please describe your answers clearly and include steps. Also I don't really understand the hole standard free energy.

The equation that relates standard free energy change to the equilibrium constant is:
Delta Go = - RT ln K
(This applies to any type of equilibrium constant.)
Delta Go = -8.314 J/molK (298 K) ln 5.0X10^23Delta Go = -1.35X10^5 J/mol = -135 kJ/mol
