Thermodynamics and Free Energy MCQs : This section focuses on the "Thermodynamics and Free Energy". These Multiple Choice Questions (MCQs) should be practiced to improve the Thermodynamics and Free Energy skills required for various interviews (campus interview, walk-in interview, company interview), placement, entrance exam and other competitive examinations.
Reactions that have positive standard free energy changes (ΔGo> 0) can be made to occur in cells by
A. coupling them with exergonic reactions via a common intermediate
B. manipulating the concentrations of products and reactants such that G/<0
C. coupling them to the hydrolysis of ATP
D. all of the above
The unfolding of regular secondary structure causes
A. little increase in the entropy of protein
B. large decrease in the entropy of the protein
C. no change in the entropy of the protein
D. large increase in the entropy of the protein
During the unfolding reaction of a helix, breakage of each hydrogen bond requires about 2kJ/mol. This implies hydrogen bonds are
A. much stronger in proteins than in water
B. not reformed with water
C. slightly weaker in proteins than in water
D. slightly stronger in proteins than in water
If the Standard Gibb's free energy, ΔG°, for a reaction is positive then
A. the products will be favored
B. the reactants will be favored
C. the concentration of the reactants and products will be equal
D. all of the reactant will be converted to product
The Standard Gibb's free energy, ΔG°, is
A. the residual energy present in the reactants at equilibrium
B. the residual energy present in the products at equilibrium
C. the difference in the residual energy of reactants and products at equilibrium
D. the energy required to convert one mole of reactants to one mole of products
If the enthalpy change for a reaction is zero, ΔG° is equal to
The thermodynamic free energy is a concept useful in the thermodynamics of chemical or thermal processes in engineering and science.
The free energy is a thermodynamic state function, like the internal energy, enthalpy, and entropy.
Free energy is that portion of any first-law energy that is available to perform thermodynamic work at constant temperature.
The Gibbs free energy is given by G = H − TS, where H is the enthalpy, T is the absolute temperature, and S is the entropy.
