## How to go from $H=TS+\mu N$ to $dH=TdS+VdP$ Jay Park 2022-11-22

## If we keep the voltage in a circuit constant, then$H=\frac{{V}^{2}}{R}t$so if I increase the resistance, the current must decrease and so the heat will be less. Then why can't we use very good conductors, like copper, for heat formation? Aliyah Thompson 2022-11-16

## In thermodynamics, the enthalpy of a system is defined as the sum of the internal energy of the system and the product of its pressure and volume. Since it is just a combination of other state properties of the system, why need we define it at all?

## To find average speed of gas molecule when the temperature is incresed. miklintisyt 2022-10-21

## I have read in multiple places that the virial coefficients in the virial equation of state, $Z=1+\frac{B}{v}+\frac{C}{{v}^{2}}...$, are functions of temperature only and are independent of pressure (or equivalently, molar volume). Is this purely an empirical observation or is there some deeper statistical mechanics reason why the virial coefficients should not depend on how close the particles are together (i.e. the molar volume)?

## So the heat capacity ratio is the ratio of the heat capacity at constant pressure to heat capacity at constant volume. Since there is no pressure in the vacuum, the heat capacity ratio of the vacuum should be zero. Is this right ? duandaTed05 2022-10-13
## In Ashcroft and Mermin Chapter 1, just above equation (1.50) and in the context of a classical ideal electron gas, it is said that the electronic specific heat at constant volume ${c}_{v}$ is defined by${c}_{v}=\frac{\frac{dE}{dT}}{V}$which seemed highly irregular to me (I would have expected division by the mass M of the system of electrons). Is there any reason for this that I am perhaps missing? Sariah Mcguire 2022-10-13
