# Derivation of Thermodynamic Derivatives Using Jacobians

Derivation of Thermodynamic Derivatives Using Jacobians

Rules from the book by M. Tribus are explored to deduce specified thermodynamic derivatives of the thermodynamical variables (energy , enthalpy , free energy of Helmholtz , free energy of Gibbs , entropy , temperature , pressure , and volume ) as functions of measurable quantities (temperature , pressure , volume , coefficient of thermal expansion , coefficient of compressibility , heat capacity at constant pressure , and heat capacity at constant volume ). Sometimes the entropy will remain outside the derivatives.
