In thermodynamics, formation energy (LH:26), short for “free energy of formation” (Lewis, 1925; Thims, 66AE), is the value of the Gibbs energy "change" Formation energy.png associated with synthesis of a chemical species, be it a hydrogen molecule H2 or dihumanide Hu2 species, from the elements at standard state (STP).
