I understand Enthalpy, the exchange of energy between products and reactants. But what is Gibbs Free Energy and Entropy? I know that Gibbs free Energy is the difference between the change in Enthalpy - [(the change in entropy)*the Temperature]. However I am not able to understand the physical meaning. What does this really mean? On the molecular scale where is it stored? If you can make it less abstract than it is right now, that would help a lot.
I am assuming once I understand Entropy, I should be able to understand Gibbs Free Energy. So, my question on Entropy is, where is entropy stored? I know it is the total disorder in the ENTIRE system, not just one molecule, the units for Entropy are J/K, and by disorder I mean the preference of the system to go to a chaotic/disordered state.
So, when solving for Gibbs Free Energy, what are we finally getting by subtracting the energy from the system (dS) from the reactions exchange in energy (dH).
