A Short Essay on the Uses of Free Energy
Koutandos, Spyridon
European Journal of Physics Education, v4 n3 p1-4 2013
In this article we examine cases of more classical and less classical nature compared to results found by quantum mechanics and attribute a form of Free Energy discontinuity for each case within a boundary layer. The concept of a boundary layer is broadened as to include areas of first or second variations of the Gibbs free energy. It is constructive to think not only of implosions like boundary layers but also of explosion like ones. Situations such as boiling and the passage of electric current are compared and results are deduced. It is illusive that free energy contains a term proportional to the surface tension times the area.
