(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove that:

[tex] (\frac{∂U}{∂V}) = P - T(\frac{∂S}{∂V}) [/tex]

2. Relevant equations

- Maxwell relations

- Total differential

- Euler's test for exact differentials

3. The attempt at a solution

It appears to work for an ideal gas, but I am wondering if it works in the general case.

Thanks!
