dE over all the energy increments gained in the process depends only on the
initial and final macrostates. In particular, therefore, the integral does not depend
on what particular process is chosen to go from i to / in evaluating the integral.
Thus one can choose one particular macrostate a of a system as a standard state
from which the mean energy is measured. For example, one can adopt the
convention of putting Ea = 0. To determine the internal energy Eb of any other ...
The energy of the initial macrostate is then E„ — V?. In this way one can construct
a curve of E versus # (see Fig. 411). The energy Ea of the . state can, of course,
be set equal to zero. nple 2 Consider a system consisting of an electric resistor ...

Never mind that this book was published in the mid '60s (before I was even born); if you must choose one book to learn from, choose this one. It is so concise, so well thought out that I have yet to ... Read full review
