Problem Set 2
1.
Using
dV
and
dS
as a function of
T
and
P
that we derived in class, fully derive the rest of
toolbox 3 (i.e.,
dU
,
dH
,
dF
, and
dG
).
2.
Derive the relationship that describes the dependence of Helmholtz free energy upon
entropy and temperature.
3.
Consider the situation in which you were asked to compare the numerical values of the
coefficient:
V
F
S
for a monatomic ideal gas, for a solid, or a liquid. To do such a comparison, derive the
state function in differential form and the coefficient as a function of materials
parameters that you would use to make the comparison. Then, discuss how the coefficient
would compare between the following: a monatomic ideal gas, for a solid, or a liquid.
Hint: to start this problem, think about what variables are sought (dependent variable) and
given (independent variables). For the last part of the problem, think in terms of gas
phases versus condensed phases.
