Change in chemical potential

  1. Nov 19, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the change of chemical potential of CH4 in a transformation from the initial
    state using the ideal gas law. σi={pi=1atm, Ti=298.15K} to the final state σf={pf=100atm, Tf=400K}.

    any ideas?

    Since this appears to be a pure substance, let me rephrase the question another way:

    What is delta G for the process of expanding one mole of methane from the initial state to the final state?
