Entropy, Enthalpy, Free Energy.

Postby Jerome Mercado 2J » Fri Feb 08, 2019 11:13 am

How is entropy, enthalpy, and free energy related?

I know that you can combine entropy and enthalpy to equal free energy ( the total energy). When solving thermodynamic problems and equations, I am still unsure what the relationships are. When do you use one equation over the other?

entropy is q(reversible)/T. q(p=reversible)= delta H (enthalpy) if pressure is constant.

Enthalpy (H)- measure of how much energy is released or absorbed during a chemical reaction.
Entropy (S) - measure of disorder or randomness in the system
Gibbs free energy- amount of energy left over after a chemical reaction has happened.
