Phase Diagrams

  • Mário J. de Oliveira
Part of the Graduate Texts in Physics book series (GTP)


We study in this chapter the phase diagrams of multicomponent systems. The representation that provides the simplest diagrams is that composed only by thermodynamic fields. A system of c components is described by c + 2 thermodynamic fields: the temperature T, the pressure p, and the chemical potentials μ 1, μ 2, , μ c of the c components.
