  • adiabatic
  • For a slow change, one can adopt the adiabatic approach and use the instantaneous system's Hamiltonian to derive L D {\displaystyle L_{D}} . An important class of problems in quantum thermodynamics is periodically driven systems. (wikipedia.org)
  • The major role of atmospheric thermodynamics is expressed in terms of adiabatic and diabatic forces acting on air parcels included in primitive equations of air motion either as grid resolved or subgrid parameterizations. (wikipedia.org)
  • Otto
  • The history of thermodynamics as a scientific discipline generally begins with Otto von Guericke who, in 1650, built and designed the world's first vacuum pump and demonstrated a vacuum using his Magdeburg hemispheres. (wikipedia.org)
  • mechanical
  • The Oxford English Dictionary says: 'Thermodynamics: the theory of the relations between heat and mechanical energy, and of the conversion of either into the other. (carleton.edu)
  • fundamental
  • From a more fundamental point of view, the third law of thermodynamics suggests that there is a preference to take S = 0 at T = 0 (absolute zero) for perfectly ordered materials such as crystals. (wikipedia.org)
  • terms
  • In practical terms, thermodynamics not only allows us to predict what minerals will form at different conditions ( forward modeling ), but also allows us to use mineral assemblages and mineral compositions to determine the conditions at which a rock formed ( thermobarometry ). (carleton.edu)
  • quantities
  • During the past ten years, I have introduced several new quantities which, in my opinion, should replace the conventional measures of solvation thermodynamics. (springer.com)
  • state
  • For DNA oligonucleotides, i.e. short sequences of DNA, the thermodynamics of hybridization can be accurately described as a two-state process. (wikipedia.org)
