Such representations also may be made in terms of (P, V, T,

cY). For instance, Example 2.2 develops H - H~~ in this
way, whereas Example 2.3 develops expressions for H - HIa
and S - sid and indicates how other properties may be
obtained from them.
Although P and V are interrelated by an EOS, one or the
other may be a preferred variable for representing changes in
the thermodynamic properties, depending on which of them is
solvable for explicitly from the EOS. This topic is considered
in Section 2.7. In Example 2.2 the particular EOS may be
solved explicitly for either P or V , so there is no advantage of
one system over the other; but in most other cases there is a
substantial difference in the ease with which a useful relation
can be developed.
Interrelations of the properties usually involve derivatives,
of which those involving P, 'V, and T are the most easily
obtained. If Eq. 2.26 is valid, all derivatives should be
expressible in terms of those variables and the ideal heat
capacity, and several convenient methods actually have been
worked out for making such transformations. The easiest to
use and the most popular is that of Bridgman (1925).As given
in Table A.7, all derivatives are based on T P, S, and the
three derivatives most susceptible of measurement: ( ~ ? v / ' l d T ) ~ ,
(dV/aP)T,and Cp = (aH/aTlp. Second derivatives also were
covered by Bridgman. Another, perhaps more versatile
system, i.s due to Shaw (1935), which is also explained by
Sherwood & Reed (1939) and simplified by Carroll (1 965).A
system presented by Modell & Reid (1974) involves the
compressibility, z =PV/RT, and is convenient for use with
but the process of developing fundamental equations in this corresponding state correlations or equations of state explicit
way is far from being a working tool. Nevertheless, the in z.
concept of fundamental equations is illuminating. Equivalent As an example, the Bridgman scheme may be applied to
relations between other groups of variables are: fmdimg the isothermal derivatives of U and H with respect to
H = H(S, P ) , (2.23) S. The derivatives are ratios of two terms listed in Table
A = A(T, V), (2.24)
G = G(T,P ) . (2.25)
These groups of variables have evolved naturally, but they are
deducible mathematically from the original fundamental
equation, Eq. 2.22, with the Legendre Transformation (e.g.,
Model1 & Reid, 1982). Another group of variables from which
all other thermodynamic data are deducible is

which comprises the PVT equation of state and the heat

capacity at zero pressure or in the ideal-gas state. Since the
quantities of Eq. 2.26 are the most easily measured ones, that
version is the most used of the fundamental relations, usually
not as a single equation but as a group of relations between
these variables.
Although it is not a formal proof of the principle, the entries
of Table 2.1 do indicate that all thermodynamic properties
may be represented in terms of each of the four groups of three
variables each: ( U ; S, V ) ;(H, S, P); (A, I; V ) ;or (G, T, P).
