Module Overview

Learning Outcomes

  1. Define the internal energy, enthalpy and entropy
  2. Classify a process as spontaneous or not in terms of the total entropy change of the universe
  3. Explain phase stability in terms of the Gibb’s free energy
  4. Use a binary phase diagram to determine the following for a given overall composition and temperature: what phases are present, the composition of each phase, the amount of each phase
  5. Contrast the amount of a phase in a system with the composition of that phase
  6. Derive the lever rule for determining the amount of a phase present within a two-phase region
