Calculate the temperature of phase transition, Physics

An element exists in two solid phases (labelled P1 and P2).

The standard molar entropies of P1 and P2  are21.9J mol-1 K-1  and 23.3J mol-1 K-1  respectively.

The standard Gibbs energy of formation of P1 is 0.0 kJ mol-1  and that of P2 is  +0.15kJ mol-1 at 298 K. 

(i) Which is the more stable polymorph at 298K?              

(ii) If the temperature is increased (at a constant pressure of 1 bar), at what  temperature will a phase transition occur between the two polymorphs?
