Statistical Thermodynamics Basis of Equations of State

WithJuan H. Vera, Grazyna Wilczek-Vera

The starting point for the statistical thermodynamics justification of equations of state for pure compounds is Equation 24.13, namely, P = − ( ∂ A ∂ V ) T , n = k T ( ∂ ln ⁡ Q ∂ V ) T , n with Q ≡ ∑ j e − E j k T
