THERMOCHEMISTRY, a branch of Energetics, treating of the thermal phenomena which are associated with chemical change.

Other branches of this subject are treated in the articles Chemical Action; Energetics; Solution; Alloys; Thermochemistry.
Another branch, related to energetics, is concerned with the transformation of chemical energy into other forms of energy - heat, light, electricity.
The name of Willard Gibbs, who was the most distinguished American mathematical physicist of his day, is especially associated with the "Phase Rule," of which some account will be found in the article Energetics.
Chemical Action and Energetics).
For the subjects of this general heading see the articles Mechanics; Dynamics, Analytical; Gyroscope; Harmonic Analysis; Wave; HYDROMechanics; Elasticity; Motion, Laws Of; Energy; Energetics; Astronomy (Celestial Mechanics); Tide.
In accordance with the principles of energetics, any change which involves a decrease in the total available energy of the system will tend to occur, and thus the necessary and sufficient condition for the production of electromotive force is that the available energy of the system should decrease when the current flows.
The name thermodynamics is given to that branch of the general science of Energetics which deals with the relations between thermal and mechanical energy, and the transformations of heat into work, and vice versa.
The more general case is discussed in the article Energetics, and in the original memoirs of Willard Gibbs and others.
iv., Applied Energetics, or Theory of Prime Movers, because its subject matter is now treated in various special articles, e.g.
energetics of the process.
energetics of the reaction directly influences the thermal balance of the interstellar medium.
energetics of food.
energetics of the climate system.
energetics of human movement on Mars.
energetics of locomotion An ongoing interest in my lab is trying to understand the basis for the energy cost of locomotion.
Here I use aero- and hydro-dynamic theory to investigate the energetics of this highly specialized foraging technique.
You will also consider energetics, which involves an analysis of energy exchanges taking place in chemical reactions.
In this way we can study the energetics of the Sun.
The step edges can play a large part in the surface dynamics of growth, and understanding the energetics of kinking is important.
The link between fundamental theory and practical application is critical: Professor Kevin Kendall FRS leads a group on interfacial energetics and interactions.
Neither treatment with placebo nor with RSG changed exercise tolerance and skeletal muscle energetics.
CONCLUSION: Images show a decline in both cellular energetics and proliferative rate after successful chemotherapy.
Subsequently data collection and analysis will be used for meso-scale studies of thermospheric energetics and dynamics.
In summary, treatment with RSG improved cardiac energetics by lowering plasma FFA and hs-CRP.
To analyze, cure and enhance space according to the principles of Feng Shui Forms School and contemporary site energetics.
Welcome to the world of food energetics, the ultimate system of nutrition for the twenty-first century.. .
flight energetics of the starling (Sturnus vulgaris) during the parental period.
Work of adhesion values calculated from the surface energetics correlated well with the interfacial shear strength values of the composites.
When such energetics are compared with those of other animals, humans look like energy wastrels.
Clausius and Lord Kelvin on the basis of "Carnot's principle" (1824), modified in expression so as to be consistent with the conservation of energy (see Energetics).
Other transformations of heat are often included under the same title (see Energetics).
This affords a useful criterion (see Energetics) between transformations which are impossible and those which are possible but irreversible.
(See Energetics.) Returning now to the aether, on our present point of view no such complications there arise; it must be regarded as a continuous uniform medium free from any complexities of atomic aggregation, whose function is confined to the transmission of the various types of physical effect between the portions of matter.
But it is to the physicists of the 19th century, and especially to Joule, whose experimental results were published in 1843-1849, that we practically owe the most notable advance that has been made in the development of the subject - namely, the establishment of the principle of the conservation of energy (see Energetics and Energy).
Willard Gibbs (1839-1903) and is known as Gibbs's Phase-Rule (see Energetics).
The equation of available energy (see Energetics) A=U+ TdA/dT may be applied to this problem.
As soon as this reversibility is introduced, general laws related to thermodynamics are applicable (see Chemical Action; Energetics).
Core Power Yoga is a western adaptation of Ashtanga Yoga emphasizing intuitive training with energetics and a fitness-based approach.
It combines music, energetics and movement in a heated environment to promote strength, vitality and inner focus.
