Definition: Phase Rule (Gibbs' Phase Rule)

The phase rule relates:

  • F: the degrees of freedom of the system
  • P: the number of phases that can coexist
  • C: the number of components (that make up the phases)

The Phase Rule States: the degrees of freedom of a system is equal to the number of components minus the number of phases plus two
