Using (8-4-1), the condition (8-4-3) that Go be stationary becomes, when V is
kept constant, (»),-(&-"(£),- But by the fundamental thermodynamic relation TdS =
dE + pdV it follows that for V constant, dV = 0, and (es\ =(d_E\ \dTjy \dTJy Thus ...
But the stability condition expressed by Le Chatelier's principle requires that this
process, induced by the original temperature increase, is such that the
temperature is again decreased (i.e., AT < 0). Hence it follows that AE and AT
must have ...
The relation (15- 1-7) expresses a condition of detailed balance according to
which the rate of occurrence of any transition equals the corresponding rate of
occurrence of the inverse transition; i.e., states of the same energy (for which W„
0) are ...
