Step 1

For a system of variable composition (open system), the differential change in molar Gibbs free energy for 1 mol of a mixture/solution is written as: help_outlineImage TranscriptionclosedG (sdT)+(vdP)+u^dx1 + /t2dx2 (1) _ At constant T and P equation (1) is written as: (2) 7 хр^m+ 1 xp11- гоР Chemical potential of component i Partial molar Gibbs free energy of I aGIx = G (3) 7 хр^н + 1xp-1- гор dGr[aG/ x1]12 dx, +[aG/ x]r,,1 dx (4) 2 fullscreen
