Unformatted text preview: on for the process to occur The T 4 S has units of energy and can be interpreted as the energy that is needed to produce the change in randomness associated 4 S. This energy is tied up and must be contained in the system. So if we consider 4 H as the total energy available and T 4 S as the tied up in randomizing the system, then 4 H − T 4 S is energy free to do work. Hence the term free energy Succinctly we say the Gibbs free energy is the energy available to do work. 100 GIBBS FREE ENERGY...
