Gibbs Enery

  1. Mar 5, 2015 #1
    I am in the section of Gibbs Energy for my chemistry course and in the textbook it says the system is at equilibrium at the boiling point, so deltaG=0, and deltaH=TdeltaS. I was just wondering if the system is always at equilibrium during any phase change, not just at its boiling point.

    Thanks!

    The free energies of the phases are equal at the phase boundaries in the phase diagram, so what do you think?

    I should say yes.
