Phase Equilibrium We will treat here phase equilibria involving one-component systems and two-component systems. No chemical reactions are assumed to occur. In the next section, we will take up chemical reactions. 1 depicts a phase diagram of a one-component system, namely a plot of P vs. T .

How is that possible? 6 kJ. [This is the correct way to calculate ∆S, since S is a state function. Had we calculated ∆S from q/T , the result would have been wrong. ] The rule that ∆S has to be positive in an irreversible change applies to an isolated system. In the above example, the system is not isolated. To get around this difficulty, the standard procedure is to consider also the entropy of the surroundings (the rest of the universe), and regard the system and surroundings as an isolated system.

At the triple point you cannot choose any variable: the variables are fixed. 2. 2) where the subscript trans refers to the particular transition, say liquid– vapor or solid–liquid. The Clapeyron equation is easy to derive. 3e) Note: This is a generalization of an expression derived earlier where P was constant. Consider two phases, α and β, in equilibrium at temperature T . Then, Gα = Gβ . Now consider an infinitesimal change from T to T + dT . The G’s will then change to Gα + dGα and Gβ + dGβ . 4d) If a transition occurs between a liquid or solid and the vapor, then in general, the volume of the condensed system will be very much smaller than the volume of the gas.
