2 Temperature and pressure dependences • The Gibbs energy is of central importance to chemistry • At constant T and p a system tends to adjust so as to minimize the value of G • Therefore, the equilibrium state of a system corresponds to the state of minimum Gibbs energy • State function G =G(T,p): to combine the first and second law of TD

3 The Fundamental Equations • The first law of TD: • For a reversible change in a closed system with constant composition in the absence of additional, non-expansion work • For a reversible change in a closed system: • dU is an exact differential and independent of path and has the same value whether the change is brought about reversibly or irreversibly d d d U q w = + d d d d rev rev w p V q T S = - = d d d U T S p V = -

4 Properties of the Gibbs energy • The same idea that were used for the internal energy U can be applied to the Gibbs energy: G=H-TS • When a system undergoes an infinitesimal change in Gibbs energy (dG), the other properties dependending on G also change: • For a system doing no additional work, dU in the above equation can be replaced by
