Abstract

Thermodynamic relations may be regarded as the motor driving chemical processes (while chemical kinetics represents the brakes). In order to operate, the relations need to be powered with the fuel of values for the thermodynamic quantities concerned, such as enthalpies, entropies, heat capacities, Gibbs and Helmholtz energies, and so forth. The following discussion considers how these important values may be obtained.
