1. Helmholtz Free Energy (A). A U – TS (combine 1 st and 2 nd Law at const T and V) Δ A = Δ U - T Δ S < 0 (spontaneous process at const T and V) Δ A = w rev =maximum work (isothermal, reversible, i.e. T Δ S=q rev ) 2. Gibbs Free Energy (G). TS H G (combine 1 st and 2 nd Law at const T and P) Δ G = Δ H – T Δ S < 0 (spontaneous process at const T and P) Δ G = w nonPV (isothermal, reversible, i.e. T Δ S=q rev ) 3. Fuel Cell Extracts Electrical Work ( Δ G=w nonPV ) from H 2 (g) + O 2 (g) H 2 O(l). Δ Hº = -285 kJ/mol and T Δ Sº = -48.7 kJ/mol at T=298 K, w nonPV = -nFE = Δ G Δ G = Δ H -T Δ S = -237 kJ/mol efficiency = w/q = Δ G/ Δ H = 83% vs 30% gas engine H 2 2 e - 2H + ½O 2 O 2- H 2 O H 2 + O 2 h ν Solar Fuel Cell
