Also, note that the terms PA and PB correspond to the partial pressures of components A and B in the mixed vapor phase above the mixed liquid at temperature T. The Gibbs free energy of mixing nA moles of A with nB moles of B is equal to: ΔGmix = [nA µAL(T, PA) + nB µBL(T, PB)] - [nA µA*L(T, PA*) + nB µB*L(T, PB*)] which we can rewrite as: Marand’s Notes: Chapter 5 - The Properties of Simple Mixtures 167 ΔGmix = nA [µAL(T, PA) - µA*L(T, PA*)] + nB [µBL(T, PB) - µB*L(T, PB*)] Using the expressions for these various terms, we get: ΔGmix = RT [nA ln(PA / PA*) + nB ln(PB / PB*)] The above...
