I have translated them into English for general reference. |

Rudolf Clausius: On a mechanical law applicable to heat
Poggendorffs Annalen 141, 124-130 (1870)
The equation of state is today exclusively taught in scalar form; it is interesting to see that it was originally given in vector form by Clausius (1870). This paper was published 25 years after the For my discussion of the
Eduard Grüneisen: Relation between compressibility, thermal expansion, atom volume and atomic heat of the metals
Annalen der Physik 26, 393-402 (1908)
I also duplicated the development of the exponential form of the equation of state for solids which was first proposed by Grüneisen (1908). It seems that he concluded the existence of this exponent simply for mathematical reasons, but he was uncertain about the physical nature of this exponent. A physical definition of the exponent is given in my paper "Approach to Deformation Theory", eqn.14.
