The formation constant AlF6^3- is 5.0 x 10^23. What is the standard free energy change for the process? ?

Full question: The formation constant for the formation of the complex ion AlF6^3- is 5.0 x 10^23. What is the standard free energy change for the process?

Please describe your answers clearly and include steps. Also I don't really understand the hole standard free energy.

    The equation that relates standard free energy change to the equilibrium constant is:

    Delta Go = - RT ln K

    (This applies to any type of equilibrium constant.)

    Delta Go = -8.314 J/molK (298 K) ln 5.0X10^23Delta Go = -1.35X10^5 J/mol = -135 kJ/mol
