Errata in Volume 2 chapter summaries[edit]

Temperature and Heat[edit]

Seems OK

The Kinetic Theory of Gases[edit]

  1. Not-to-worry I make this mistake during lecture all the time: is the average speed, not the average velocity --Guy vandegrift Noto Emoji Oreo 1f921.svg (discusscontribs) 01:54, 2 February 2018 (UTC)

The First Law of Thermodynamics[edit]

Seems OK

The Second Law of Thermodynamics[edit]

  1. " for any COMPLETE cyclic process." ... What is an INCOMPLETE cyclic process? (... or maybe this is something I should know about?)
  2. " describes the change of entropy of a closed system under any REVERSIBLE process" Why must it be reversible?... (or maybe there is a way to decrease entropy in a closed system if the process is irreversible???)

ok[edit]

ok[edit]

Electric potential[edit]

Where should I put all these equation sheets?[edit]

I am moving this discussion to Talk:OpenStax equations--Guy vandegrift (discusscontribs) 20:32, 28 February 2018 (UTC)
