Physics 213: Lecture 11, Pg 3 Why do we define Free Energy, F = U - TS? Why do we define Free Energy, F = U - TS? Answer: Equilibrium corresponds to maximum S tot = S reservoir + S small system . The free energy incorporates the effect of the reservoir by its temperature T. In minimizing F (equivalent to maximizing S tot ) we don’t have to deal explicitly with S reservoir . Consider exchange of gas between two containers: The derivative of free energy with respect to particle number is so important in determining an equilibrium condition that we define a special name and symbol for it: For these 2 subsystems exchanging particles , we see that the condition for “chemical equilibrium” is: V 1 V 2 2 1 μ = μ chemical potential of subsystem “i” = i i i dN dF = μ Maximum Total Entropy Minimum Free Energy Equal chemical potentials 0 dN dF dN dF dN dF dN dF dN dF 2 2 1 1 1 2 1 1 1 = - = + = Equilibrium condition: (dF/dN 1 = 0) dN dF dN dF 2 2 1 1 = 1 N equilibrium value F = F 1 +F 2 Small system at temperature T

Physics 213: Lecture 11, Pg 4 The path ahead... The path ahead... We have thus far studied systems in which volumes can be exchanged this led to mechanical equilibrium and equal pressures in the two volumes. We then studied systems in which energy can be exchanged this led to thermal equilibrium and equal temperatures of the systems. Now we consider systems in which particles can be exchanged, e.g., Particles can move from place to place Particles can combine (chemistry, vacancy-interstitial recombination, electron-hole recombination, nuclear reactions…) into new types. This will lead to “chemical equilibrium”, in which the “chemical potential” is equalized, the free energy of the system is minimized, and the total entropy is maximized (which after all is the most probably state of affairs...) And lots and lots of applications... We start with a concrete example...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
