Chapter 8 Thermodynamics 8.1 Mathematical introduction If there exists a relation f ( x,y,z )=0 between 3 variables, one can write: x = x ( y,z ) , y = y ( x,z ) and z = z ( x,y ) . The total differential dz of z is than given by: dz = ± z x ² y dx + ± z y ² x dy By writing this also for dx and dy it can be obtained that ± x y ² z · ± y z ² x · ± z x ² y = - 1 Because dz is a total differential holds ³ dz =0 . A homogeneous function of degree m obeys: ε m F ( x,y,z )= F ( ε x, ε y, ε z ) . For such a function Euler’s theorem applies: mF ( x,y,z )= x F x + y F y + z F z 8.2 Defnitions The isochoric pressure coef±cient: β V = 1 p ± p T ² V The isothermal compressibility:
