Abstract

In this chapter, we will discuss the equations describing the equilibrium composition of a system based on classical thermodynamics, limiting our presentation to the essential ingredients of the theory. The axiomatic approach (Callen 1985) will be used, leaving an alternative derivation in Chap. 3 in the framework of statistical thermodynamics.
