Chemical Potential: Example Problem
Try to solve these problems before watching the solutions in the screencasts.
Example Problem 1
Two identical flasks at 45°C are connected by a tube. Flask A contains water and flask B contains 50% more water, plus it contains ethanol. As the system approaches equilibrium, which direction will the water move, if at all, and which direction will the ethanol move if at all? Explain.
Example Problem 2
The pressure on 1.0 kg of water at 50.°C and 0.10-MPa pressure increased to 10. MPa at 50.°C. What was the change in chemical potential?
