John Winter, Department of Geology


This PowerPoint presentation is part of the Whitman College petrology course. The presentation covers basic subjects of thermodynamics. These subjects include energy states, phases, Gibb's free energy, enthalpy, entropy, temperature, and pressure vs. temperature graphs. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html

Part of the Cutting Edge collection. The NAGT/DLESE On the Cutting Edge project helps geoscience faculty stay up-to-date with both geoscience research and teaching methods.
