The probability PA (EA , NA ) that the “system” has the energy

EA and the particle number NA ?

The probability Pα for the “system” to be found in the

microstate α?

The probability distribution PA (EA , NA ):

Γ(EA , NA |E , N )

Γ(E , N )

PA (EA , NA ) =

ΓA (EA , NA )ΓB (E − EA , N − NA )

Γ(E , N )

PA (EA , NA ) and hence log PA (EA , NA ) has a sharp peak at

EA = E¯A and NA = N¯ A in equilibrium.

Since the Gibbs free energy is an extensive quantity, it should

be directly proportional to V . It means that

= constant.

The constant should be the pressure P :

G = −kB T log ZG = PV .
