**Binary Solutions**
Hey everybody,
I'm taking on an Adv. Thermodynamics class and I have decided to take this new approach.. so here I go.
My problem goes: "Consider a binary solution of components A and B. Is each of the following quantities positive, negative, or zero, or is there not enough information to tell? Prove your results.
(a) (dμb/dNb) at constant T,V and μa
(b) (dμb/dP) at constant T, μa
What I have tried....
part (a) I'm assuming an Ideal binary solution, and from there I can obtain S(mixture). Also, since I'm being asked for dμb I know that μ can be related to Gibbs ending up with a Gibbs expression:
G(T,P,Na,Nb)
But from there I thought of using a Maxwell relation to obtain μ from Helmholtz???
I'm taking the same approach for the part (b)
I would appreciate any comments. I'm still trying if I comeup with some new approach will updated this!
Thanks in advance!
