A Vector Representation for Thermodynamic Relationships
Pogliani, Lionello
Journal of Chemical Education, v83 n1 p155-158 Jan 2006
The existing vector formalism method for thermodynamic relationship maintains tractability and uses accessible mathematics, which can be seen as a diverting and entertaining step into the mathematical formalism of thermodynamics and as an elementary application of matrix algebra. The method is based on ideas and operations apt to improve the skills of teachers and the level of inquisitiveness and curiosity of students.
