Phase transitions

Qualitative discussion: the 1-component system water

specific volume

Clausius-Clapeyron Equation

Heat Reservoir R

T=const.

Consider a system of liquid & vapor phases in equilibrium at given P and T

P=const.

vapor phase

contains N2 particles

constant # of particles

N=N1+N2

liquid phase

contains N1 particles

P and T fixed

System in a state of

minimum Gibbs free energy

Gibbs free energy/particle

= chemical potential

N2= N - N1

for

Let´s discuss G  minimum for g1>g2, g1<g2 and g1=g2

Index 1: liquid

Index 2: vapor

g1>g2

G at minimum for N1=0

N2=N (only vapor phase)

1

g1<g2

G at minimum for N1=N

N2=0 (only liquid phase)

2

g1=g2

G at minimum for all N1, N2 with N1+N2=N

Note: g1=g2  1=2(see equilibrium conditions)

How does the pressure change with temperature for two phases in equilibrium
