1 - right or wrong ?
a) The Gibbs free energy of a system is a state function,
b) it is written G H TS ,
c) for an elementary process : dG SdT PdV ,
d) if F is the Helmoltz free energy of the system G F PV

2 - what are the correct propositions ?


a) The Gibbs free energy is thermodynamic potential because it can predict the evolution of a
system for any process.
b) During a reversible process at constant pressure and temperature, the Gibbs free energy of
a system does not vary.
c) During a process at constant pressure and temperature, the Gibbs free energy of a system
always remains constant.
d) The Gibbs free energy variation G A B of a system between the states A and B is
minimum for a reversible process A B .
e) A spontaneous evolution of a system at constant temperature and pressure always implies a
decrease of the Gibbs free energy.

The molar latent heat of vaporisation of a substance is the heat quantity required to transform
one mole of this substance from the -------- state to the -------- state, at constant -------- and ------. This explains on one hand the terms of ------- heat and on the other hand that this
transferred heat corresponds to an -------- variation of the system constituted of one mole of
the substance. This also explains the equivalent name of molar vaporisation ---------- .

4 - terms
a) Name the transformation solid gas, gas liquid, solid liquid and their opposite.
b) What is a supercritical fluid ?

1- a) true, b) wrong, c) wrong, d) true

2- a) wrong, b) true, c) wrong (only true for a reversible process), d) wrong G is a state
function, e) true

3- The molar latent heat of vaporisation of a substance is the heat quantity required to
transform one mole of this substance from the liquid state to the vapour state , at constant
pressure and temperature. This explains on one hand the terms of latent heat and on the other
hand that this transferred heat corresponds to an enthalpy variation of the system constituted
of one mole of the substance. This also explains the equivalent name of molar vaporisation
enthalpy.
