Gibbs function

Gibbs function
the thermodynamic function of a system that is equal to its enthalpy minus the product of its absolute temperature and entropy: a decrease in the function is equal to the maximum amount of work available exclusive of that due to pressure times volume change during a reversible, isothermal, isobaric process. Also called Gibbs free energy, thermodynamic potential.
[named after J. W. GIBBS]
