Homework Help: Partial Derivative

  1. Sep 5, 2010 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    (∂H/∂V)T


    2. Relevant equations
    PV = nRT
    H = U + PV
    n and R are constants

    it just means partial derivative of H with respect to V with T kept constant.

    you pretend T is a constant and differentiate as usual
