At equilibrium the Gibbs energy has reached a minimum value for the given temperature and pressure. 135 can be used to derive the equilibrium conditions between two or more phases in a system at constant temperature and pressure. 123 into this equilibrium condition gives: ^ v p ¼ xi fi p~l ; yi f i i i ¼ 1; 2; 3; Á Á Á ; C: ð2:139Þ This formalism is known as the gamma-phi approach for calculating vapourˆ vi of each component that accounts liquid equilibria. The fugacity coefficient f for the non-ideality of the vapour phase can be evaluated from an equation of state model, while the activity coefficient fi to describe the non-ideal behaviour of the liquid phase can be obtained from an excess Gibbs function model.

If (T, V, nn) are taken as the independent variables, a thermodynamic property X(T, V, nn) may be written in the form XðT; V; nn Þ ¼ X pg ðT; V; nn Þ þ X res ðT; V; nn Þ ð3:11Þ where Xpg (T, V, nn) denotes the property of a hypothetical perfect gas with the specified values of (T, V, nn) and Xres (T, V, nn) is the residual term. 12 generally differ. This is a consequence of the fact that, while (T, V, p, nn) characterise the state of the real fluid, the state of the hypothetical perfect gas depends upon whether (T, V, nn) or (T, p, nn) are specified.

For further details see references 2 and 4. 4 Mixing and Departure Functions In terms of the independent variables, temperature, pressure and composition, departure functions compare the value of a general thermodynamic property M(T, p, n) with the corresponding property in the ideal-gas state and at a reference pressure pr, that is Mpg(T, pr, n). According to the ideal gas law, the reference pressure pr is related to the reference volume Vr ¼ nRT/pr. 3 MR(T, V, n) Residual functions with volume or density as an independent variable (r ¼ n/V and Z ¼ pV/nRT).
