2-8 can alternatively be written as 1 dS = - d U T P + -dVT p. The corresponding criterion of equilibrium is (dS) 2 0 at constant U , U; and { n , ) . At equilibrium the entropy is at a maximum. When LJ, and { n , ) are constant, we can refer to the system as isolated. 2-8. 2-13 does not provide any new information, we will not discuss it further. 2-14) This is referred to as the integrated form of the fundamental equation for U . 2-14 can be regarded as a result of Euler's theorem. A function f ( x 1, x2,.

5-9) are often referred to as equations of state. Only N , + 1 equations of state are independent, and so if N, + 1 of them can be determined experimentally, the remaining equation of state can be calculated. The criterion of equilibrium for this one-phase system without chemical reactions is dG d 0 at constant 7; P, and (n,}. For this system the F = N, 1 independent intensive variables can be chosen to be 7; P, xl, x2,.. , xN- and the D = N, 2 natural variables can be chosen to be 7; P , x l , x2,..

5-3) If a system can be described by d U = T d S - PdLc: there are only four thermodynamic potentials that can be defined in this way. We will consider only the equations for the Gibbs energy and the enthalpy. 5-5) This shows that the natural variables of G for a one-phase nonreaction system are 7; P, and (n,}. The number of natural variables is not changed by a Legendre transform because conjugate variables are interchanged as natural variables. In contrast with the natural variables for U , the natural variables for G are two intensive properties and N , extensive properties.
