Gibbs Free Energy & Spontaneity

This video looks at the Intuition behind why spontaneity is driven by enthalpy, entropy and temperature. Introduction to Gibbs free energy.

Example video - Determining if a reaction is spontaneous by calculating the change in Gibbs Free Energy.

Video 1 - More formal understanding of why a negative change in Gibbs Free Energy implies a spontaneous, irreversible reaction.

Video 2 - A look at why the "proof" of the relation between changes in Gibbs Free Energy and Spontaneity is wrong in many textbooks.
