Homework Statement



In the attached picture, I am wondering if there is an error in equation (6.34). In equation (6.33), the partial differential of G/T is taken with respect to T. In (6.34), however, the partial differential of G/T is taken with respect to 1/T and the same outcome is produced (see the right-hand side of the equation). Is this an error, or am i not catching something here?

Yep, good catch; the first denominator in (6.34) should be [itex]\partial T[/itex] instead of [itex]\partial(1/T)[/itex].
