On Exact and Inexact Differentials and Applications
Cortez, L. A. B.; de Oliveira, E. Capelas
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, v48 n4 p630-641 2017
Considering the important role played by mathematical derivatives in the study of physical-chemical processes, this paper discusses the different possibilities and formulations of this concept and its application. In particular, in Chemical Thermodynamics, we study exact differentials associated with the so-called state functions and inexact differentials associated with path functions. As an application, we discuss the equation of state associated with a gas.
