State Value Versus Process Value

  • Achim SchmidtEmail author


The previous chapters have shown, that it is essential to distinguish between state and process values. State values specify the state of a thermodynamic system. Furthermore, they can be visualised in a pv-diagram for instance. The state of an ideal gas is fixed by two independent state values, so that each pv-pair in a pv-diagram defines the state of a system unambiguously.
