Work and Gibbs Free Energy

Postby Suraj Doshi 2G » Sun Feb 16, 2020 1:07 pm

When will work be equal to Gibbs free energy? (Which variables need to be constant for this phenomenon to happen?)

Delta G equals the maximum amount of work done at constant pressure and temperature.

I'm not sure if this is what you were asking but I hope it helps.

i think temperature and pressure have to be constant, so that no energy is released as heat or entropy, but all used as work

I think it has to be when entropy is 0, and q = -w. So, there is no change in internal energy and no change in entropy.
