Table of thermodynamic equations
The following page is a concise list of common thermodynamic equations and quantities:
Additional recommended knowledge
The following equations are classified by subject.
Note that the symbol δ represents the fact that because q and w are not state functions, δq and δw are inexact differentials.
In some fields such as physical chemistry, positive work is conventionally considered work done on the system rather than by the system, and the law is expressed as dU = δq + δw.
