A Macroscopic Review F For any process –For reversible process –For irreversible process F This limits the maximum work we can extract from a certain process. (1st law)
Application 1: Available Work F In a thermally isolated system at a constant T |W| = F is the minimum amount of work to increase the free energy of a system by F, at a constant T. The 2nd law
More Available Work Since P V is free at a constant P |W other | = G is the minimum amount of other work (chemical, electrical, etc.) needed to increase the Gibbs free energy of a system by G, at a constant T and a constant P. previously

One More Mystery after a cycle Q' h > 0 Q' c < 0 The total entropy of an isolated system that undergoes a change can never decrease.
Force toward Equilibrium F With fixed T, V, and N, an increase in the total entropy of the universe is the same as a decrease in the (Helmholtz) free energy of the system. F At constant temperature and volume, F tends to decrease (no particles enter or leave the system). –The total entropy (system + environment) increases. T -dU
App. 6: Why Different Phases? F At low T, the system tends to lower the energy, forming ordered state. F At high T, the system tends to increase the entropy, forming disordered state. energyentropy tends to decrease
