3 Minimum Enthalpy Principle Similarly, the enthalpy H = U + pV can also be associated with a minimum principle. 52) as a direct consequence of the second law. e. dH ≤ 0 at S and p constant. 4 Minimum Gibbs’ Free Energy Principle Similar considerations are applicable to closed systems in which both temperature and pressure are maintained constant but now the central quantity is Gibbs’ free energy G = U − T S + pV . 54) ¯ . e. dG ≤ 0 at T and p constant. 55) The above criterion plays a dominant role in chemistry because chemical reactions are usually carried out under constant temperature and pressure conditions.

Such expressions have been identified as Maxwell’s relations. As a last remark, let us mention that the results established so far in homogeneous systems of total mass m and volume V are still valid when referred per unit mass and unit volume. 24), the fundamental relation per unit mass is u = u(s, v, . . , ck , . 37) reads as k ck = 1. 38) k=1 with T = (∂u/∂s)v,{ck } , p = −(∂u/∂v)s,{ck } , µ ¯k = (∂u/∂ck )s,v,{cj=k } . 32) take the form n u = T s − pv + n µ ¯k ck , k=1 S dT − v dp + ck d¯ µk = 0.

4) k=1 where s is the specific entropy (per unit mass), u is the specific internal energy, related to the specific total energy e by u = e − 12 v · v , with v the velocity field of the centre of mass of the cell, T is the absolute temperature, p is the hydrostatic pressure, v is the specific volume related to the mass density ρ by v = 1/ρ, ck = mk /m, the mass fraction of substance k, and µk its chemical potential. 3 Entropy Balance 41 A third consequence follows from the property that, locally, the system is stable.
