Q1: How to select variables of an experimental or simulation
system?
Q2: Select macroscopic or microscopic variables?
A1: 1. Use minimum number of measurable variables.
2. Each variables must be independent.
A2: The basis of selection is the scale of the phenomena or substances of
primary interest.

Microscopic Macroscopic
Microscopic properties can spread to macroscopic properties
But macroscopic properties cannot spread to microscopic properties
We usually used macroscopic properties to describe engineering
problem, simply because it’s easier to do.
The price paid is, however, that small-scale problems cannot be
studied, and some macroscopic properties themselves become
difficult to understand.

1-1.2 Definition of equilibrium states
1-1.2 Definition of equilibrium states
System has no external influences (such as flow, electrical fields).
All thermodynamic properties must be “time invariance” (time
independent).
1-1
When all properties have reached time independence in our selected time
scale, the system would seem to reach an equilibrium. Yet, since different
people may have different opinions of time scale, the viewpoint of equili-
brium could also be different.

Chemical potential:
The definition of chemical potential is the
energy change from a particle, molecule or
electron move into or leave the system.
If the overall system has reached an equili-
brium, the energy reduction in the liquid
phase due to the moving of a molecule into
the gas phase is the same as the energy
increase in the gas phase. So, the total
system energy remains unchanged.

Equations of state:
An intensive parameter is expressed in
terms of independent extensive
parameters.
Knowledge of a single equation of state does not constitute complete
knowledge of the thermodynamic properties of a system.
Knowledge of all independent equations of state is equivalent to the
knowledge of the fundamental equation.

What is the unit of
entropy?
Unit of entropy:
In classic thermodynamics, entropy
is dimensionless parameter.
In thermostatistics, unit of entropy
correlates with states.
So, unit of temperature is energy.
The temperature scale, Kelvin, was used in molecular scale.
e.g. Energy of a simple molecule = 3/2 k

T = 3/2 Kelvin

S max. principle: The equilibrium value of any unconstrained internal parameter
is such as to maximize the entropy for a given value of the total internal energy.
U min. principle: The equilibrium value of any unconstrained internal parameter
is such as to minimize the energy for a given value of the total internal entropy.
36
2-1
Molecular Rheology LAB
Question: How to prove the two principles are equivalent?
Answer: Using either physical argument or mathematical
exercise.
Physical argument
Assume: The system is in equilibrium but the energy does not have its
smallest possible value consistent with the given entropy.
The system would be restored to its
original energy but with an increased S.
So, it is inconsistent with the principle
that the initial equilibrium state is the
state of maximum entropy.
System
Can withdraw energy
dU = -dW
Return energy to
sys.
-dW = dQ = TdS
Energy
The original equilibrium state must have had min. energy consistent with
the prescribed entropy. The inverse argument is the same.

2-1.2 Legendre transformations
Motivation:
U(S, V, N) or S(U, V, N) both are extensive parameters. Some of these
parameters might be difficult to control or measure under usual experimental
conditions.
Basic idea:
Using Legendre transformations is to cast the above representation into
equivalent forms which, by contrast, utilize intensive parameters as
independent variables.

of states for which T = T

Similarly, one can prove the Enthalpy minimum principle H(S, P, N) for
systems in contact with a pressure reservoir, as well as the Gibbs potential
minimum principle G(T, P, N) for systems in contact with both a heat and
pressure reservoir.

Focus our attention exclusively on the subsystem of interest, and relegate
the reservoir only to an implicit role.
As shown in Chap. 16, statistical mechanical calculations are enormously
simpler for such systems, permitting calculations that would otherwise be
totally intractable.
The Helmholtz potential is often referred to as the Helmholtz free energy,
though the term available work at constant temperature, would be less
subject to misinterpretation.
See Example.1 in page 159, which shows that one can increases the
entropy of a subsystem without changing the associated internal energy.

2-4.4 Compilations of empirical data
In practice, it is common to compile data on h (T, P), s (T, P), v (T, P);
v is redundant but convenient.
These relationships can, in principle, be utilized to construct the Gibbs
potential via g = h –Ts, and thus all thermodynamic may be obtained
using proper relationships, such as the Maxwell relationships.

which must hold for all ΔU(ΔV) rather than for ΔU→ 0(ΔV→ 0) only.

The portion BCDEF is unstable, because it violates the global form of
concavity of entropy. Yet, only the portion CDE fails to satisfy the differential
form of the stability condition.
The portions of the curve BC and EF are said to be “locally stable” but
“globally unstable.” (e.g., it is susceptible to large-amplitude perturbations)
Points on the straight line BHF correspond to a phase separation in which part
of the system is in state B and part in state F.

3-2.2 Effect of fluctuations
From the perspective of statistical mechanics all physical systems undergo
continual local fluctuations even in the absence of externally induced
vibrations, only to attenuate and dissipate in accordance with the Le
Chatelier principle.
The curvature of the potential well then plays a crucial and continual role,
restoring the system toward the “expected state” after each Brownian
impact (fluctuation).

Fluctuation
Fluctuations (e.g. Brownian motions) play an
important role bringing the system form one local
min. to the other. The possibility associated with a
successful jump is exponentially inverse to the energy
gap. It is therefore possible that the system trapped in
a metastable min. is effectively in stable equilibrium.
The system spends almost all the time in the more stable minimum.
Global min. is path independent state, yet the metastable one is path
dependent.

First-order phase transitions
Definition: Shift of the equilibrium state from one local minimum to the other,
induced by a change in certain thermodynamic parameters.
Equilibrium state at constant T & P correspond to the min. in G(T, P, N).
The slope of the curve in the left figure is simply difference in pressure (?).
At T

properties (e.g. u, f, h, v ,s) are discontinuous across the transition.
High-density phase is more stable below the transition temperature, T

Molecular Rheology LAB
Second-order phase transitions
Definition: At the so-called critical point (point D), the difference between two
distinct states disappears and there is only one equilibrium state.
Moving along the liquid-gas coexistence curve toward higher temperatures,
the discontinuities of two phase in molar volume and molar energy become
progressively smaller.
The existence of the critical point (D) precludes the possibility of a sharp
distinction between the generic term liquid and the generic term gas.

Ice skating: The pressure applied to ice on

a lubricating film of liquid on which the
skate slides.
Mountain climbing: The pressure decreased
and the water boiling point decreased with
the higher altitude. Therefore, it is difficult to

As the critical point is reached the single minimum is a flat bottom, which
implies the absence of a “restoring force” for fluctuations away from the

In the critical region, long-range correlated fluctuation become the
dominant factor affecting the thermodynamic properties, and the short-
range atomistic feature becomes unimportant.

The basic postulate of thermodynamics incorrectly identifies the most
probable value of the energy as the equilibrium or average value.
The deviation becomes very pronounced near critical points when the
thermodynamic potentials become very shallow.
Renormalization-group theory demonstrates that the numerical values of
the scaling exponents for a large class of materials are identical, dependent
primarily on the dimensionality of the system and on the order parameter.

In general, however, the heat capacity, for instance, depends on the
internal degrees of freedom, as well as on the system temperature which
has to do with different modes of excitation.
e.g. stretching of interatomic bond, kinetic energy of vibration, rotation,
translational motions of the molecules, other potential and kinetic energy
The heat capacity of real gases

In the equation of state of a given fluid, there is one unique point －the
critical point—characterized by T

.
The dimensionless constant P

cr
has value on the order of 0.27 for
all “normal” fluids of the three parameters that characterizes the critical
point. It thus appears that “only two are independent”.

A possible origin of the universal, two-parameter equations of state －the
“van der Waals force” of two spherical-like, non-polar molecules.
The force between two molecules can be parameterized by the radius of
the molecule, which describes the short-range repulsion, and the strength
of the long-range attraction.
The long-range attractive force falls with distance as 1/r
6
and has arisen
from the instaneous dipole moment fluctuations.

Macroscopic systems Atomic systems
Closed system
given V & N
U, V, and N are the
only constraints on
the system.
Quantum mechanics
If the system is macroscopic, there
may exist many discrete quantum
states consistent with the specified
values of U, V, and N.
Naively, we might expect the system in a particular quantum state would
remain forever in that state.
The apparent paradox is seated in the assumption of isolation of physical
system. No physical system is, or ever can be, truly isolated.
A realistic view of a macroscopic system is one in which the system
makes enormously rapid random transitions among its quantum states. A
macroscopic measurement senses only an average of the properties of
myriads of quantum states.

Molecular Rheology LAB
Equal probability assumption
Consider a “isolated” system and “constraint N, V, & U.” Not all of the
system microstates are determined, and hence one is concerned with the
probability associated with each of these microstates.
Equal probability assumption brought out by Boltzmann:
A macroscopic system samples every permissible quantum state with
equal probability.
The assumption of equal probability of all permissible microstates is the
fundamental postulate of statistical mechanics.
Equal probability assumption applies only to isolated systems.
136

Molecular Rheology LAB
Correlation of Ω & S
The No. of microstates (Ω) among which the system undergoes transitions,
and which thereby shares uniform probability of occupation, increases to the
max. permitted by the imposed constraints.
According to the postulate of the entropy increases to the max. permitted by
the imposed constraints.
It suggests that the entropy can be identified with the number of
microstates consistent with the imposed macroscopic
constraints.

Consider a system composed of Ñ “distinguishable elements,” an element
being an “independent (noninteracting) excitation mode” of the system.
System
Element
Each element can exist in a set of orbital states (use the term
orbital state to distinguish the states of an element from the
state of the collective system).
The identifying characteristic of an “element” is that the energy of the
system is a sum over the energies of the element, which are independent
and noninteracting.

Molecular Rheology LAB
“Corrected classical counting” is incorrect for either type of real particle!
At sufficiently high temperature the particles of a gas are distributed over
many orbital states, form very low to very high energies.
The probability of two particles being in the same orbital state becomes
very small at high temperature. The error of classical counting then
becomes insignificant, as that error is associated with the occurrence of
more than one particle in a one-particle state.
All gases approach “ideal gas” behavior at “sufficiently high
temperature”.

This agreement between entropy and disorder is preserved for all other
boundary conditions －that is for systems in contact with pressure
reservoirs, with particle reservoirs, and so forth.
Thus we recognize that the physical interpretation of the entropy is that
the entropy is a quantitative measure of the disorder in the relevant
distribution of the system over its permissible microstates.
In thermodynamics the entropy enters as a quantity that is maximum in
equilibrium. Identification of the entropy as the disorder simply brings
theses two viewpoints into concurrence for closed systems.

We seek the “fractional coverage” of the

The gaseous phase which bathes the surface establishes the values of T
and μ, being both a thermal and a particle reservoir.
In such a case μ, the Gibbs potential per particle of the gas, must first be
evaluated from the fundamental equation of the gas, if known, or from
integration of the Gibbs-Duhem relation if the equation of state are
known.

The mean square energy fluctuations are proportional to the size of the
system.
The relative root-mean-square dispersion , which measures
the amplitude of the fluctuations relative to the mean energy, is
proportional to N
-1/2
.
For large systems (N→∞) the fluctuation amplitudes become negligible
relative to the mean values, and thermodynamics becomes precise.

Ideal Fermi fluids
The ideal Fermi fluid is a quantum analogue of the classical ideal gas; it is
a system of fermion particles between which there are no (or negligibly
small) interaction forces.
Composite “particles,” such as atoms, behave as fermion particles if they
contain an odd number of fermion constituents e.g.
3
He.

the fluid flows freely through the finest capillary tubes, as its
name denotes, “superfluid.”
This component cannot easily dissipate energy through friction, as it is
already in the ground state.
The condensed phase has a quantum coherence with no classical
analogue.
These electron pairs then act as bosons. The Bose condensation of the
pairs leads to superconductivity, the analogue of the superfluidity of
