Consumption of free energy

  • #1
We know that free energy is a well-defined concept in thermodynamics. How about the *consumption* of free energy? Are there well-defined criteria for saying "system X has consumed E amounts of free energy" ?

That requires us to define what is a physical system, and secondly, to define consumption.

Thanks in advance!
