Maxwell's Relations of Thermodynamic Functions

  1. Jul 30, 2013 #1
    The following are Maxwell's Relations right?

    [itex]\left(\frac{\partial s}{\partial v}\right)_{T}[/itex] = [itex]\left(\frac{\partial p}{\partial T}\right)_{v}[/itex]

    [itex]\left(\frac{\partial s}{\partial p}\right)_{T}[/itex] = [itex] - \left(\frac{\partial v}{\partial T}\right)_{p}[/itex]

    Are these all? And BTW, these are derived from the thermodynamic POTENTIALS. Are thermodynamic POTENTIALS also called thermodynamic FUNCTIONS? Sorry for this dumb question. I just want to be sure. I'm reviewing and all the different notations from different books are really mixing up in my head.
