Unformatted text preview: In a first-order transition, the equilibrium condition: (T- )/C |g 4 |P s 2 + g 6 P s 6 = 0 with T set equal T c gives one equation for the polarization P s (T c ) at the transition temperature. A further condition at the Curie point is that F(P s ,T c ) = F(0,T c ). (a) Combining these two conditions, show that P s 2 (Tc) = 3|g 4 | / 4g 6 . (b) Using this result, show that T c = + 3 C g 4 2 / 16g 6 ....
