Understanding Equation Form

  1. Hi,

    Example:

    Maxwell Relation (thermoD)...


    ([itex]\frac{∂μ}{∂T}[/itex])[itex]_{p,n}[/itex] = - ([itex]\frac{∂S}{∂n}[/itex])[itex]_{T,p}[/itex]

    what does it mean having those subscript variables outside of the brackets.

    thanks

    They are kept constant in the process. For example, the left side is the change of µ if you change T, but keep p and n constant.
