Question

This problem is (10.9) from a book "Thermodynamics and Statistical Mechanics An Integrated Approach by M. Scott Shell"

Step 1

For a single component system in two phases in equilibrium, the relationship between the chemical potential of the two phases is:

Step 2

Also, the relationship between chemical potential, entropy of the system, and volume of the system is:

Step 3

Write this equation (2) for both the phases...
