PHYSICS AND THEIR LAWS

Contents 1. Introduction: On the nature and importance of thermodynamic laws 2. Thermodynamic systems and their description 2.1.

The Thermodynamics of Linear Fluids and Fluid Mixtures

Thermodynamics and its Concepts in Non-equilibrium.- Thermodynamics of Uniform Systems.- Continuum Thermodynamics of a Single Fluid.- Continuum Thermodynamics of Mixtures of Linear Fluids.

Billiards, invariant measures, and equilibrium thermodynamics. II

The kinetics of collisionless continuous medium is studied in a bounded region on a curved manifold. We have assumed that in statistical equilibrium, the probability distribution density depends only

THERMODYNAMICS OF A CLASSICAL IDEAL GAS AT ARBITRARY TEMPERATURES

We propose a fundamental relation for a classical ideal gas that is valid at all temperatures with remarkable accuracy. All thermodynamical properties of classical ideal gases can be deduced from

The Work–Energy Theorem and the First Law of Thermodynamics

This paper presents the first law of thermodynamics, and shows what thermodynamics adds to the work—energy theorem from mechanics. This may help students to understand the contents of the law itself

Extended thermodynamics of ideal gases with 14 fields

On formule une thermodynamique etendue des gaz non relativistes comme theorie de 14 champs. Le champ supplementaire est un scalaire qui represente le quatrieme moment de la fonction de distribution

Constantin Carathéodory and the axiomatic thermodynamics

The birth, raise, development and fortunes of a fundamental theory in thermodynamics, the axiomatic thermodynamics, a creation of Constantin Carathéodory, is thoroughly presented together with a

One or two small points in thermodynamics

I present my recollections of what I used to find to be "one or two small points in thermodynamics", following Sommerfeld's famous quote, and review them on the light of present knowledge.

Measuring the Entropy and Testing the Second Law of Thermodynamics

Evidence implies that basic laws of thermodynamics must be tested by experiments. In this paper, an experiment is designed to measure the entropy of a system with at least one known (measurable)
