Description

This notebook can be used to help students in physical chemistry, or other related classes, better understand path integrals in thermodynamics. The notebok attempts to illustrate the meaning of path integration and the difference between path-dependent and path-independent integrals for the purpose of understanding why, in thermodynamics, you choose the easiest transformation path.
