Changes of External Conditions

  • Josef Honerkamp


In the previous chapters we have dealt with systems in thermodynamic equilibrium, i.e., with systems being and remaining in a state of maximum entropy. The external conditions were kept constant and the systems were adapted to these external conditions. It was for this situation that we formulated the equations of state expressing the relations among the system variables.
