Helmholtz free energy or Helmholtz function or work function.

The work function (A) is defined as

A = U – TS

Let an isothermal change at temperature T from the initial state indicated by subscript (1) to final state subscript (Z) so that
                 A1 = U– TS1
&              A=  – TS2
                A2 – A1 = (U2 – U1) – T(S– S1)
                ΔA = ΔU – TΔS
or             dA = dU – TdS

                 dA = dU – TdS                                                         [∴ TdS = dq]
                 dA = dU – dq

From first law dq = dU – ω or  dU – dq = ω i.e.
dA = ω

Free energy function Gibb’s free energy function.
The free energy funct ion G is given by G = H – TS
Let us consider the change of system from (1) to (2) at constant temperature, we have

G2 – G1 = (H2 – H1) – T(S– S1)

ΔG = ΔH – TΔS
dG = dH – TdS

Variation of free energy with pressure:

We know that

dG = VdP – SdT

when process is isothermal then 

dT = 0

(dG)T = V(dP)T

When pressure is constant the
dP = 0

(dG) P = –S(dT)P

Isothermal change in free energy for ideal gas

Isothermal change in free energy for solid and liquid The volume occupied by solid and liquid is nearly independent of pressure:

dG = VdP
G2 – G= V(P2 – P1)

Problem.  Two mole of an ideal gas are allowed to expand reversibly and isothermally at 300 K from a pressure of 1 atm to a pressure of 0.1 atm.  What is the change is Gibb’s free energy.

ΔG = –11488.2 J = –11.4882 KJ

Gibbs Helmholtz equation. 

(A) Temperature depends of free energy we know that

         G = H – TS

&      dG = VdP – SdT
         dG = VdP – SdT

As pressure is constant, therefore

              (dG)P = –S(dT)P
∴            dG1 = –S1dT

S1 & S2 are entropy in the init ial and final states.

dG= –S2dT

Subtracting these equation we get
        dG2 – dG1 = –(S2 – S1)dT

(B)  Temperature dependence of Helmholtz function:

We know that      A = U – TS
                           ΔA = ΔU – TΔS
&                         dA = –PdV – SdT

As vo lume is constant, therefore

dA = –SdT dA1 = –S1dT

S1 and S2 are init ial and final entropy. dA2 = –S2dT Subtracting these equation we get
dA2 – dA1 = –(S2 – S1)dT
dΔA = –ΔSdT
