This chapter draws together all the main mathematical equations into a single, structured, sequence, so providing a source of reference, as well as enabling the student to appreciate how superficially different equations are, in fact, component parts of a ‘bigger picture’. The chapter also introduces some new material, such as the Maxwell relations, the chain rule, the thermodynamic equations-of-state, isenthalpic throttling processes, the Joule-Thomson coefficient and the compressibility factor – so setting the scene for the discussion of real systems in the following chapter.

Keywords:   fundamental equations of thermodynamics, energy, enthalpy, entropy, free energy, heat capacity at constant volume, heat capacity at constant pressure, Maxwell relations, chain rule, thermodynamic equations of state, Joule-Thomson coefficient, isenthalpic change, throttling process, compressibility factor
