Edit: nvm-answer is Yes...:smack: So dG is an extensive property?

Real quick question:

When you're trying to determine the delta G of a reaction with G[products] - G [reactants], do you account for the coefficients of the products?

yes pretty sure that you do take coefficients into account.

if one mol has a change of -10 joules, two mol will be -20. wouldn't make much sense otherwise.

delta G standard is delta G for reaction occurring at standard conditions, 298K and 1 molar.
