Hi

Please could someone explain the difference between the feasibility of a reaction and whether a reaction is spontaneous. I don't mean in terms of formula but in terms of the definition of the words as they seem to be used interchangably and I'm not sure they are the same thing.

I believe feasible refers to whether a reaction is thermodynamically possible but I also thought that was what spontaneous meant too

thanks
