The following problem arises when experiments are done ;n solids at high
p.ressures.
If
the pressure is increased by an amount Ap, thi!! being done under
cIrcumstances where the sample is thermally insulated and at a sufficiently slow
rate that the process can be regarded as qU88istatic, what is the resulting change
of
t~mperature
AT of the sample?
If
Ap is fairly small, derive an expression for
AT m terms of
t:.p,
the. absolute temperature
T
of the sample, its specific heat at
constant
p~essure

its density
