A non-spontaneous reaction is: a reaction that always releases free energy a reaction that will occur without an input of heat a reaction that will only occur with outside interference a reaction that will occur without outside interference

    This is Gibbs free energy, which tells us that a reaction that's spontaneous delta G <0 will occur but it doesn't tell you how fast your reaction will happen that's kinetics something separate.

    A non spontaneous reaction is one in which delta G>0 which means that the reaction won't happen spontaneously although some cases you can increase temp to make it spontaneous but it varies.

    It would occur with outside interference meaning you May need to put in energy to get it going.

    So that would make it C?

    I would say it's C but do you understand why?

    Absolutely.. Remember spontaneous will say the reaction will tend towards the products but won't tell you how fast it will happen
