Defning Δ G • Recall, the second law oF thermodynamics: Δ S univ = Δ S total = Δ S sys + Δ S surr • Also recall: Δ S surr = - Δ H sys /T • Then , Δ S total = Δ S sys - Δ H sys /T ± ΤΔ S total = -T Δ S sys + Δ H sys
Defning Δ G (cont.) • We then defne: Δ G = -T Δ S total • Then: • Or : Δ G = -T Δ S sys + Δ H sys Δ G = The Gibbs Free Energy (constant P)

Δ G and Spontaneous Processes • Recall from the second law the condititions of spontaneity: • Three possibilities: – If Δ S univ > 0…. .process is spontaneous – If Δ S univ < 0…. .process is spontaneous in opposite direction. – If Δ S univ = 0….equilibrium • In our derivation of Δ G, we divided by -T; therefore, the direction of the inequality changes relative to entropy.
Δ G and Spontaneous Processes (cont.) • Three possibilities: – If Δ S univ > 0…. .process is spontaneous – If Δ
