Phase transitions Qualitative discussion: the 1-component system water specific volume

Clausius-Clapeyron Equation Consider a system of liquid & vapor phases in equilibrium at given P and T Heat Reservoir R T=const. P=const. liquid phase contains N 1 particles vapor phase contains N 2 particles N=N 1 +N 2 constant # of particles P and T fixed System in a state of minimum Gibbs free energy Gibbs free energy/particle = chemical potential

with N 2 = N - N 1 const. for Let´s discuss G  minimum for g 1 >g 2, g 1 g 2 G at minimum for N 1 =0N 2 =N (only vapor phase) 2 g 1 { "@context": "http://schema.org", "@type": "ImageObject", "contentUrl": "http://images.slideplayer.com/13/4047430/slides/slide_4.jpg", "name": "with N 2 = N - N 1 const.", "description": "for Let´s discuss G  minimum for g 1 >g 2, g 1 g 2 G at minimum for N 1 =0N 2 =N (only vapor phase) 2 g 1
