In contrast to most other thermodynamic data, entropy values are not given in relation to a certain—more or less arbitrarily defined—zero level. They are listed in standard thermodynamic tables as absolute values of specific substances. Therefore these values describe a physical property of the listed substances. One of the main tasks of chemistry is to understand physical properties with respect to the internal structure of the substances. This comprises issues such as the kind of chemical… 
A Three Dimensional-System of Units
A new system of units is offered that eliminates redundancies found in the SI system by involving physical concepts that found, by following an entropy approach, common features of the thermal, electrical and magnetic fluxes.
Electronic Entropy as a Periodic Property of the Elements: A Theoretical Chemistry Approach
Periodicity in electronic molar entropy values has been shown on the basis of the electronic structures of the elements. Also, with the approximations discussed herein, one can estimate the

Some 80-90 years ago, George A. Linhart's work was undeservedly forgotten, although it represents a valid and fresh standpoint on thermodynamics and statistical physics, which may have a significant implication for academic and applied science.
The Statistical Interpretation of Classical Thermodynamic Heating and Expansion Processes.
A statistical model has been developed and applied to interpret thermodynamic processes typically presented from the macroscopic, classical perspective. Through this model, students learn and apply
Understanding the Product Life Cycle Using the Second Law of Thermodynamics
Physics helps us understand business phenomenon like the product life cycle. The PLC was instated to describe the life and death of products or companies. Statistical means provided us with a tool to
Exergy and energy analysis of 850 MW natural gas combine cycle plant
In the field of the combined cycle plant analysis, thermodynamic optimization of the heat recovery steam generator, the steam turbine and the condensate unit is to much more important to able to
Cancer classification using entropy analysis in fractional Fourier domain of gene expression profile
Fractional Fourier transform and entropy-based techniques are utilized to extract representative features of the gene expression profile (GEP) and conduct tumour classification using the support vector machine (SVM).
A Study of Pre-service Chemistry Teacher`s Understanding on Entropy
In this study, we conducted preliminary survey, diagnostic test and in-depth interview in order to study Korean pre-service chemistry teachers' understanding on entropy and investigate how Korean
SECTION 3. General issues in management
Applicants for employment are usually compared subjectively in the selection process, and the selections made are typically not reliable, if only because they are seldom verifiable empirically. The
Merit measures and validation in employee evaluation and selection
The present study describes a process of much more objective selection sequence, one that involves a quantitative/mathematical measure that may be used in selecting a candidate applying for a job, in a process then adds two other independent measures to validate the decision taken.
