4 Gibbs Free Energy G = H - TS Where: G = Gibbs Free Energy H = Enthalpy (heat content) T = Temperature in Kelvin S = Entropy (a measure of randomness)

5 Alternative Equation For other temperatures and pressures we can use the equation: dG = VdP – SdT where V = volume and S = entropy (both molar) This equation can be used to calculate G for any phase at any T and P by integrating G T 2 P 2 - G T 1 P 1 = ∫ P 1 P 2 VdP - ∫ T 1 T 2 SdT

Using Thermodynamics G is a measure of relative chemical stability for a phase We can determine G for any phase by measuring H and S for the reaction creating the phase from the elements (SiO 2 from silicon and oxygen, for example) We can then determine G at any T and P mathematically How do V and S vary with P and T? dV/dP is the coefficient of isothermal compressibility
