(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

This is an experiment done on solid at high pressure. If the pressure is increased by an amount [tex]\Delta[/tex]p, this being done under condition where the sample is thermally insulated and at a sufficiently slow rate that the process can be regarded as quasi-static, what is the resulting change of temperature [tex]\Delta[/tex]T of the sample ? If[tex]\Delta[/tex]p is fairly small, derive an expression for [tex]\Delta[/tex]T in terms of [tex]\Delta[/tex]p, the absolute temperature T of the sample, its specific heat at constant pressure c_{p}(in ergs g^{-1}deg^{-1}), its density rho (in g/cm^{3}), and its volume coefficient of thermal expansion [tex]\alpha[/tex](in deg^{-1})

2. Relevant equations

dv = [tex]\alpha[/tex]V dt

Maxwell's equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I started from an expression for coefficient of thermal expansion and tried to relate it with maxwell's equation. The constant terms in maxwell's equations are very confusing.
