written by Harvey Gould and Jan Tobochnik
We discuss the nature of the chemical potential by considering some simple models and simulations. We then discuss the role of the chemical potential in understanding phase transitions with a focus on the van der Waals equation of state. We also discuss chemical reactions and the law of mass action.
