1. This small group activity is designed to give students a chance to derive expressions for Helmholtz and Gibbs free energies and Enthalpy
  2. Students use $F=U-TS$ to derive the Helmholtz free energy equation, and then the Gibbs free energy and the Enthalpy.
  3. The whole class discussion focuses on the derivation processes, as to ensure that every student is capable of independently reproducing the derivations.
