7.1 The Gibbs energy minimum 1. Extent of reaction ( ξ ): The amount of reactants being converted to products. Its unit is mole. Consider: A B Assume an infinitesimal amount dξ of A turns into B, d n A = -dξ On the other hand, d n B = dξ Why do we need a new quantity? consider a generic reaction: 2A 3B In a very general way, the extent of reaction is calculated as dξ = d n A / v A (where v A is the stoichiometric number of the reactant A, which is negative for the reactant!!)

Example 1: N 2 (g) + 3H 2 (g) 2NH 3 (g) when the extent of reaction changes from ξ = 0 to ξ = 1.0 mole, what are the changes of each reagent? Solution: identify v j : v(N 2 ) = -1; v(H 2 ) = -3; v(NH 3 ) = 2. since dξ = 1.0 mole,
