Unformatted text preview: p , holding τ constant, to obtain: =  Similarly, we can take the partial derivative of the second equation with respect to τ , holding p constant, to obtain: = The mathematical truth useful here is that: = Therefore, we can say that:  = Using a similar method, we can derive a total of 12 Maxwell Relations. These are useful in relating any two sets of variables, a set consisting of the intensive and extensive variables that are coupled in the identities....
