Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes so ummm let's start with enthalpy so this is the thermodynamic potential H=U+pV is one of the formulas that correspond to enthalpy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I was just about to put it lol so this formula is represented by the variables: H is the enthalpy of the system U is the internal energy of the system p is the pressure of the system V is the volume of the system. U is the value the is temperature dependent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Maybe I'll try a different way: Enthalpy describes the change in energy of a system. In the case of water, the "system" is the water itself. At constant pressure, enthalpy refers to changes in heat. An exothermic processes involves a negative change in enthalpy, or a loss of heat. As water vapor condenses into liquid, it loses energy in the form of heat. Therefore, this process is exothermic.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3We will get to that because we need to talk about entropy first or free energy won't make much sense

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Entropy is pretty much the amount of disorder In solids there is a low amount of disorder because in soilds there is a defined volume and shape In liquids the disorder increase because there is a define volume but no defined shape In gases chaos or disorder is high because the is no defined volume or shape the molecules are all over the place

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So going from a gas to a liquid you're creating order because you're going from a gas that is is complete disorder to a liquid that has more order

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So now there is free energy or Gibbs Free energy as it is also referred to as is the thermodynamic quantity equivalent to the capacity of a system to do work.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3It is represented by the equation dG=dHTdS d is those little triangle delta things that normally mean "change in" G is the free energy H is enthalpy T is temperature S is entropy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3We know that dH is negative as heat is given off We also know dS is negative because it is going from a gas to a liquid

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3dS is negative dH is negative At low temperatures TdS will be to small to overcome dH So dG will be negative At high temperatures TdS will be big so dG will be positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3When ΔG is negative, a process or chemical reaction proceeds spontaneously in the forward direction. When ΔG is positive, the process proceeds spontaneously in reverse. When ΔG is zero, the process is already in equilibrium, with no net change taking place over time.
