# Thermodynamic Sentence Examples

- Hence we get the equation Ee = Le +Te (dE/dT) or E = L+T(dE/dT), as a particular case of the general
**thermodynamic**equation of available energy. - In 1870 the subject of refrigeration was investigated by Professor Carl Linde of Munich, who was the first to consider the question from a
**thermodynamic**point of view. - Any reversible cell can theoretically be employed as an accumulator, though, in practice, conditions of general convenience are more sought after than
**thermodynamic**efficiency. - An ideal gas is a substance possessing very simple
**thermodynamic**properties to which actual gases and vapours appear to approximate indefinitely at low pressures and high temperatures. - Whatever view, if any, be adopted as to the nature of a solution, the
**thermodynamic**relations we have investigated equally hold good. - It is then found both by experiment and by
**thermodynamic**theory that in these amorphous radiations there is for each temperature a definite distribution of the energy over the spectrum according to a law which may be expressed by 0 5 0(OX)dX, between the wave-lengths X, A+dX; and as to the form of the function 4), Planck has shown (Sitzungsber. - (5) If we might also regard the couple as a reversible
**thermodynamic**engine for converting heat into work, and might neglect irreversible effects, such as conduction, which are independent of the current, we should expect to find the ratio of the heat absorbed at the hot junction to the heat evolved at the cold junction, namely, PIP', to be the same as the ratio T/T of the absolute temperatures of the junctions. - His first contributions to mathematical physics were two papers published in 1873 in the Transactions of the Connecticut Academy on "Graphical Methods in the
of Fluids," and "Method of Geometrical Representation of the**Thermodynamics****Thermodynamic**Properties of Substances by means of Surfaces." **Thermodynamic**theory also indicates a connexion between the osmotic pressure of a solution and the depression of its freezing point and its vapour pressure compared with those of the pure solvent.- Writing formulae (3r) and (33) for the energy and entropy with indeterminate constants A and B, instead of taking them between limits, we obtain the following expressions for the
**thermodynamic**functions in the case of the vapour: " =Solog e 0 - R log e p - ncp/D+A". - Although the value of G in any case cannot be found without that of 0, and although the consideration of the properties of the
**thermodynamic**potential cannot in any case lead to results which are not directly deducible from the two fundamental laws, it affords a convenient method of formal expression in abstractfor the condition of equilibrium between different phases, or the criterion of the possibility of a transformation.**thermodynamics** - G, J,
**Thermodynamic**potential functions. - A saturated solution is a system in equilibrium, and exhibits the
**thermodynamic**relations which hold for all such systems. Just as two electrified bodies are in equilibrium when their electric potentials are equal, so two parts of a chemical and physical system are in equilibrium when there is equality between the chemical potentials of each component present in the two parts. - Such, a concordance between theory and experiment not only verifies the accuracy of
**thermodynamic**reasoning as applied to dilute solutions, but gives perhaps one of the most convincing experimental verifications of the general validity of**thermodynamic**theory which we possess. - They merely show that, in the conditions of the particular experiments, the
**thermodynamic**equilibrium value of the osmotic pressure cannot be reached - the**thermodynamic**or theoretical osmotic pressure (which must be independent of the nature of the membrane provided it is truly semi-permeable) is a different thing from the equilibrium pressure actually reached in a given experiment, which measures the balance of ingress and egress of solvent through an imperfect semi-permeable membrane. - The conceptions of osmotic pressure and ideal semi-permeable membranes enable us to deduce other
**thermodynamic**relations between the different properties of solutions. - It follows that if the
**thermodynamic**heat of solution be positive, that is, if heat be absorbed to keep the system at constant temperature, the solubility will increase with rising temperature, while if heat be evolved on dissolution, the solubility falls when the system is heated. - By imagining that a dilute solution is put through a
**thermodynamic**cycle we may deduce directly relations between its osmotic pressure and its freezing point. - When the solution ceases to be dilute in the
**thermodynamic**sense of the word, that is, when the spheres of influence of the solute particles intersect each other, this reasoning ceases to apply, and the resulting modification of the gas laws as applied to solutions becomes a matter for further investigation, theoretical or experimental. - (2) As the concentration of the solutions increases, the ionization as measured electrically and the dissociation as measured osmotically might decrease more or less together, though, since the
**thermodynamic**theory only holds when the solution is so dilute that the dissolved particles are beyond each other's sphere of action, there is much doubt whether this second relation is valid through any appreciable range of concentration. - The simplest application of the
**thermodynamic**potential is to questions of change of state. - 0,
**Thermodynamic**or absolute temperature. - It is the strength and weakness of
**thermodynamic**methods that they are independent of theories of constitution. - Thus prismatic sulphur has a higher melting-point (120°) than the rhombic form (116°), and it is even possible to calculate the difference theoretically from the
**thermodynamic**relations. - Kohlrausch has prepared water of which the conductivity compared with that of mercury was only o 4 oX 11 at 18° C. Even here some little impurity was present, and the conductivity of chemically pure water was estimated by
**thermodynamic**reasoning as o 36X1011 at 18° C. As we shall see later, the conductivity of very dilute salt solutions is proportional to the concentration, so that it is probable that, in most cases, practically all the current is carried by the salt. - The forces between the ions of a strongly dissociated solution will thus be considerable at a dilution which makes forces between undissociated molecules quite insensible, and at the concentrations necessary to test Ostwald's formula an electrolyte will be far from dilute in the
**thermodynamic**sense of the term, which implies no appreciable intermolecular or interionic forces. - The fact that the Gibbs-Helmholtz equation is found to apply also indicates that the lead accumulator is approximately reversible in the
**thermodynamic**sense of the term. - This function is also called the "
**thermodynamic**potential at constant volume " from the analogy with the condition of minimum potential energy as the criterion of stable equilibrium in statics. - The condition of stable equilibrium is that G should be a minimum, for which reason it has been called the "
**thermodynamic**potential at constant pressure." - All the
**thermodynamic**relations we have deduced hold on any theory of solution and favour no one theory rather than another. - But for any theory of solution to be tenable, it must at least be consistent with the known
**thermodynamic**relations, verified as those relations are by experiment. - The highest
**thermodynamic**efficiency will be reached when the working substance is at the top of its temperature range while any heat is being received and at the bottom while any heat is being rejected - as is the case in the cycle of operations of the theoretically imagined engine of Carnot. - The stages at which heat is taken from the furnace and rejected to the cooler (C) are approximately isothermal at the upper and lower limits of temperature respectively, and the cycle accordingly is approximately "perfect" in the
**thermodynamic**sense. - 0, Temperature on
**thermodynamic**scale. - The second relation, as we have seen, is not a strict consequence of theory, and experiments to examine it must be treated as an investigation of the limits within which solutions are dilute within the
**thermodynamic**sense of the word, rather than as a test of the soundness of the theory.
