At 25 ∘C the reaction from Part A has a composition as shown in the table below.?
What is the free energy change, ΔG, in kilojoules for the reaction under these conditions?
Express your answer numerically in kilojoules.

In order to answer this, you need to know what ΔGo for this reaction is, as well as the specific reaction. I'm assuming that the reaction is:
C2H2(g) + H2(g) <--> C2H6(g).
Then, use the equation:
ΔG = ΔGo + RT ln Q
ΔG = ΔGo + (8.314 J/molK)(298K) ln (2.25X10^-2) / (4.15) (3.25)
