then you know that the ΔG of the reaction must be negative.
then you know that the ΔG of the reaction must be positive.
the reaction will proceed spontaneously.
the reaction will not proceed spontaneously.
the reaction will likely proceed spontaneously, but you still need to take into account the ΔH value.
