Equations
In science, an equation is a formula that sets one or more numbers or mathematical symbols equal or unequal to another set of set of one or more numbers or mathematical symbols whose operation is governed by specific rules.
Latex issues
Some LaTex equations, e.g. ΔG < 0, particularly when put into tables, on in some cases pasted into page, the code won't hold for some reason, and the page will not save.
Discussion
In 1918, American historian William Thayer, in commentary on the previous work of American physical historian Henry Adams, posited the future would see the arrival of a “common formula” that would unite history and thermodynamics: [1]
The best candidate for this common formula, to note, as things currently stand, is the 1882 affinityfree energy equation (GoetheHelmholtz equation), such as elaborated on in American chemical thermodynamicist Frederick Rossini's 1971 "Chemical Thermodynamics in the Real World" Priestly Medal address, the the full ramifications of this, as Adams concluded after nearly working on the problem for 50years, will require the aid of "another Newton".

Table of equations
The table to the right lists hmolscience relevant equations, in text (some linked) and LaTex format, although a few of the latter are in jpg format, indicated by (jpg) bracket, due to some kind of wiki page save error issue (seems to have something to do with "<" in LaTex), and each equation shown in modern symbol notation with main theorist behind the formulation of each: [2]

“The time may come when human affairs may be described no longer by words and sentences, but by a system of symbols or notation similar to those used in algebra or chemistry … then it may be possible to invent a common formula for thermodynamics and history.”
The best candidate for this common formula, to note, as things currently stand, is the 1882 affinityfree energy equation (GoetheHelmholtz equation), such as elaborated on in American chemical thermodynamicist Frederick Rossini's 1971 "Chemical Thermodynamics in the Real World" Priestly Medal address, the the full ramifications of this, as Adams concluded after nearly working on the problem for 50years, will require the aid of "another Newton".
