The same result can also be obtained considering the chemical potential of A in the mixture with B, of B in the mixture with A and of A and B pure. Indeed, we showed earlier that the chemical potential of an ideal gas under pressure P1 is related to that of the same gas under pressure P2 by: "P % µ ( T,P1) = µ ( T,P2 ) + RT ln$ 1 ' # P2 & If we take initial pressure to be P and final pressure to be PA, then the € change in chemical potential of A during the mixing process is: "P % µ A ( T,PA ) = µ A ( T,P) + RT ln$ A ' #P& € Marand’s Notes: Chapter 5 - The Properties of Simple Mixtures 164 The same equation holds for B: "P % µ B ( T,PB ) = µ B ( T,P) + RT ln$ B ' #P& Therefore the free energy of mixing, which is defined by: € ΔmixG = G(mixed gases) - G(pure gases) is equal to: [ [ Δ mix G = n Aµ A ( T,PA ) + nBµ B ( T,PB ) − n Aµ A ( T,P) + nBµ B ( T,P) * $P ' $ P 'Δ mix G = RT,n A ln& A ) + nB ln& B )/ %P( % P (. + which is identical to the equation obtained before. € We now recall that both partial pressures, PA and PB can be written in terms of the corresponding mole fractions and the total pressure.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
