Fugacity is a calculated property that is intrinsically related to chemical potential. Fugacity is a measure of how much the chemical potential of the component in the gas deviates from the chemical potential of some reference, namely, the ...

It has been shown in the preceding paper that for a given substance in a given state the fugacity is a defmite property of which the numerical value can in most cases be readily determined, and which is well suited to serve as an exact measure ...

Oxygen fugacity is an equivalent of the partial pressure of oxygen in a particular environment (atmosphere, rocks, etc.) corrected for the nonideal character of the gas.

Fugacity is a thermodynamic property which is related to chemical equilibrium.
by Arkady N. Pilchin, Lev V. Eppelbaum
Oxygen fugacity is an important parameter in terrestrial systems, because it controls the content of FeO and Fe,O3, and also the stability of metallic iron. Higher oxygen fugacity means fewer iron silicates or fewer mafic minerals, because the ...

The fugacity is a measure of a chemical's tendency to escape from the phase in which it exists to adjacent phases. It has the...
The principal advantage of introducing fugacity is that it enables all concentrations to be expressed in a single unit.

Fugacity is the thermodynamically driven escaping tendency of a chemical from a particular phase. It has units of pressure, and at low concentrations (such as usually occur in the environment) it is proportional to concentration. A difference in ...

Fugacity is the way of the sky, lending its fragile beauty for fleeting moments only to whisk it away on the breath of high-altitude winds. The evanescent nature of the sky's radiance is dependent upon the culmination of light, clouds, and often ...

Fugacity is an intensive property. It is a sort of idealized pressure. It has the same dimension as pressure, usually atm or bar. It is preferably used in the study of phase. It is also useful for multi-component equilibrium involving any combination ...

Fugacity is a very misunderstood principle but can be defined as the escaping tendency of a particular component within a system (Glasstone 1946). The fugacity ratio (f/p0) under normal temperature and pressure conditions can be replaced ...
It has been shown in the preceding paper that for a given substance in a given state the fugacity is a definite property of which the numerical value can in most cases be readily determined, and which is well suited to serve as an exact measure ...

An important point to note here is that the intrinprinciple should also apply' sic oxygen fugacity is a quantity definable in terms of composition, temperature, and total pressure. The above discussions for intrinsic oxygen fugacities of binary ...

Fugacity coeflicients of numerous pure gases are tabulated from low (¢,*=l) to high pressures for practical use. In Eq. (4) the reference pressure p* is the standard pressure, p+=p°=l atm; quantity p¢,* is called the fugacity of the pure gas Y,.
