Proof for la grangian

  1. Feb 5, 2012 #1
    As this thread implies i wanted to try to prove ideal gas equation pV=vnRT

    where T is tempearture p is pressure n is mole V is volume and R is gas constant

    and then I found that I had to prove la grangian

    What I wonder about is given in thread here

    In the end of the thread it is said that someone her might be able to help me with a suitable textbook. Is that possible?

    Hello Georg,

    As with strangerep in the other thread you started I am not sure what you are attempting, but you should look up the Joule experiment and the Joule-Thompson experiment.

    They proved experimentally that the so called internal pressure of an ideal gas is zero.

    This provides an alternative definition of an ideal gas as a gas with

    [tex]{\left( {\frac{{\partial U}}{{\partial V}}} \right)_T} = 0[/tex]

    You can use this plus Boyle's law to derive PV=NRT.

    The following thermodynamic relation is also useful. this relates to all substances, not only ideal gasses.

    [tex]{\left( {\frac{{\partial U}}{{\partial V}}} \right)_T} + P = T{\left( {\frac{{\partial P}}{{\partial T}}} \right)_V}[/tex]

    By the way did you see my answer in your other thread about reversibility?
