Thermal Equation of State

  • Achim SchmidtEmail author


In this chapter, the correlation between the thermal state variables pressure p, specific volume v and temperature T is investigated. As already discussed in the previous chapter, thermal state values can easily be measured. Furthermore, according to Gibbs’ phase law for ideal gases two intensive state values, i.e. pressure and temperature, fix the state of a thermodynamic system unequivocally. Thus, a mathematical function to calculate the third thermal state value v must exist:
$$v=f(p, T)$$
