Ehh...only when g is negative.. G is free energy:
S-enthropy-how much disordered is system
From equation u see that if heat is released(negative H) and system gets disordered(S is positive) then G is negative on anyT.
If H is positive(heat is absorbed but S is so positive then G is still negative and reaction is spontanous. If S is negative(system gets ordered but H is so negative G could be negative and reaction spontaneous)
