Gibbs Free Energy vs. Internal Energy

Postby Rachel Kipp 1I » Fri Jan 27, 2017 1:52 am

Can someone explain the difference between Gibbs free energy and internal energy to better conceptually understand the two?

Internal energy is the energy within a system at any time, while Gibbs free energy is energy that is available to be given off to do work.I hope this helps somehow.
