Determine how a temperature change gives rise to a volume change for a valve. That is, reduce the partial derivative, h T v ∂ ∂ Solution: Following our step by step process: Step 1: Since our derivative contains the enthalpy h, we need to bring it to the numerator using Jacobian manipulations and eliminate it by use of the appropriate defining differential equation. ( 29 ( 29 h T, h v, = T v h ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂ write as Jacobian ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 P T, h T, P T, h v, h T, h v, ∂ ∂ ÷ ∂ ∂ = ∂ ∂ introduce P&T We now transform the Jacobians back to derivatives. Starting with the 1 st Jacobin, we must write out the fill determinant ( 29 ( 29 P T T P T P T P T h P v P h T v P h T h P v T v P T, h v, ∂ ∂ ∂ ∂- ∂...
