The Clausius-Clapeyron equation is given by:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]\frac{dP}{dT}=\frac{LJ}{T(V_2-V_1)}[/tex]

[itex]dP[/itex] is the change in pressure

[itex]dT[/itex] is the change in temperature

[itex]L[/itex] is the Latent heat of fusion/vaporisation

[itex]T[/itex] absolute temperature of substance

[itex]V_2-V_1 [/itex] is the change in volume

[itex]J[/itex] is heat constant

What is the physical significance of this equation?
