Black Hole Thermodynamics in an Undergraduate Thermodynamics Course.
Parker, Barry R.; McLeod, Robert J.
American Journal of Physics, v48 n12 p1066-70 Dec 1980
An analogy, which has been drawn between black hole physics and thermodynamics, is mathematically broadened in this article. Equations similar to the standard partial differential relations of thermodynamics are found for black holes. The results can be used to supplement an undergraduate thermodynamics course. (Author/SK)
