Trying to understand fugacity, but feeling uncertain? Clear up your confusion in just one hour.

This webinar provides a concise review of fugacity that boils this important concept down to its essentials. You will examine the relationship of fugacity to other fundamental properties of thermodynamics. You'll see its connection to phase equilibrium and review the most common methodologies for its calculation in gas and liquid phase systems. Through this webinar, you'll decode the key ideas behind fugacity - including why we use fugacity, how to obtain fugacity from an equation of state or activity coefficient model, and more.

Take a look at your agenda:

  • Why we use fugacity and not chemical potential
  • Does fugacity have physical meaning?
  • How to obtain fugacities from an equation of state
  • How to obtain fugacities from activity coefficient models
  • Calculating chemical equilibrium - is fugacity needed?
