Ideal gas: Chemical potential

From SklogWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The chemical potential of an ideal gas is given by

\left. \mu (p,T) \right.= \mu_0 (T) + kT \ln p

where \mu_0 is often called a standard chemical potential, which is given by

\mu_0 (T)= -k_BT \left[ \ln V/N + \frac{3}{2} \ln \left( \frac{2\pi m k_BT}{h^2} \right)\right]
