Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Note that this is: \[ \frac{d}{dT}\frac{A}{T}=\frac{dA}{dT}\cdot\frac{d}{dT}\left(\frac{1}{T}\right) \]This becomes: \[ \frac{dA}{dT}\cdot\frac{1}{T^2} \]And, I can take a guess, although I don't quite know what \(A\) is in this context, we have: \[ \frac{dA}{dT}=E \]So: \[ E\cdot\frac{1}{T^2}=\frac{E}{T^2} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A is the Helmholtz energy, A for Arbeit in German, E or mostly written U is the internal energy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0True most of the way except that: \[A=UTS\] \[\left( \frac{ \partial A }{ \partial T } \right)_{V}=S\] S is the entropy.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But if you substitute the equations back and forth you come to the conclusion you did so well done by lolwolf.
