Determination of the [E.sub.a] of Hex in the different aliquots subjected to this heat inactivation revealed a progressive increase of this thermodynamic variable, becoming stable after 8 h of incubation in which a value of approximately 75.0 kJ/mol was reached (Fig.
If the BI parameter [beta] is viewed as a free thermodynamic variable too, one can check the first law of thermodynamics in extended phase space
Paul Ehrenfest classified phase transitions based on the behavior of the (density of) free energy f as a function of other thermodynamic variables (see ref.
Firstly, we study the critical points in [epsilon] - [r.sub.+] plane, for which the thermodynamic variables of EOS should be [epsilon], [r.sub.+] (i.e., v), T.
[U.sub.p,q] does not depend on the values of the electron thermodynamic variables, as the temperature T, the volume V, and the chemical potential u.
Typically matter is characterized by its phase, which depends on thermodynamic variables: density (or volume), temperature and pressure -- factors that differ greatly at the nuclear level and in an intracellular context.
The thermodynamic variables corresponding to the elastic strain tensor [[epsilon].sub.e] and the damage tensor D are:
His topics include ground-based remote sensing, ground-based zenith-looking radio visibility at microwave frequencies over a tropical location, ground-based radiometric sensing of thermodynamic variables in the polar regions, microwave radiometric estimation of excess electrical path, and characterizing rain and attenuation in the Earth-space path.
Processes not explicitly represented by the basic dynamical and thermodynamic variables in the equations on the grid of the model need to be included by parameterizations.
