(b) Express the partial derivatives on the right hand side of this equation in terms of CP and the EOS variables p, v, and T.

6.7 The differentials of the entropy given by Eqs (6.23b) and (6.24b) have a third variant:

ds = Cvfdll dp+Mdll dv

Prove this relationship.

Hint: start with s as a function ofp and v, form its differential, and use the chain rule to convert the partial-derivative coefficients to the desired forms.

6.8 What is the difference between CP and CV (in units of R) for N2 at 300 K and 10 MPa? Nitrogen at these conditions behaves as a Van der Waals gas with constants given by Eq (2.8).

6.9 Show that the equation for the enthalpy change from state 1 to state 2 calculated by the 1-B-2 path in the diagram for the last example in Sect. 6.3.3 is the same as for the 1-A-2 path.

6.10 Show that:

[d v JS Cvpv where P is the coefficient of compressibility. Follow these steps:

1. to obtain an expression for (dp/dv)S:

(a) take the differential of s(p,v)

(b) use divide-and-hold-constant rule

2. To introduce CP and CV, use the chain rule (Eq (6.7))

3. To introduce P, use the cyclic transformation (Eq(6.6))

Global warming is a huge problem which will significantly affect every country in the world. Many people all over the world are trying to do whatever they can to help combat the effects of global warming. One of the ways that people can fight global warming is to reduce their dependence on non-renewable energy sources like oil and petroleum based products.
