I am quite confused by some aspects of thermodynamics. First of all, I just wonder, when the textbook says that "when the constraints are temperature, volume and particle number, minimise F for equilibrium" (and similar statements for G and H), does it mean that the temperature, volume and particle number of the sub-system (i.e. excluding the reservoir) is fixed?
And also, if Z, the partition function, is given, how should I proceed to find the equation of state?
Thank you. :tongue2:
