This article was ported in part from Wikipedia

The prior Lemma article was replaced by this article which was ported from WP and then revised and reformatted, including a new section. So it probably contains WP content. Milton Beychok 00:13, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Figure captions

I felt it was not necessary to number the figures in this article. John R. Brews 12:02, 5 April 2011 (UTC)

Gibbs energy

I've included a very non-quantitative description of Gibbs free energy to assist in understanding the diagram. It links to Entropy (thermodynamics) and to Enthalpy, but to be frank, I do not find either of these articles at all helpful in providing a feel for their subjects. John R.

Following discussion with Milt Beychok, the discussion was made less technical and the figure changed to match. John R. Brews 17:21, 6 April 2011 (UTC)
