Sentence Examples

  • Changes of entropy must be calculated in terms of quantities of heat, and must be interpreted in a similar manner.
  • In the special case of a substance isolated from external heat supply, dH=o, the change of entropy is zero in a reversible process, but must be positive if the process is not reversible.
  • Writing formulae (3r) and (33) for the energy and entropy with indeterminate constants A and B, instead of taking them between limits, we obtain the following expressions for the thermodynamic functions in the case of the vapour: " =Solog e 0 - R log e p - ncp/D+A".
  • If we write h=sot+dh, where so is a selected constant value of the specific heat of the liquid, and dh represents the difference of the actual value of h at t from the ideal value sot, and if we similarly write q5 = sologe(6/90)+dcp for the entropy of the liquid at t, where do represents the corresponding difference in the entropy (which is easily calculated from a table of values of h), it is shown by Callendar (Proc. R.S.
  • The adiabatics are lines of constant entropy, and are also called Isentropics.
