Overview

In 2007, Kriz, in his “Thermodynamic Case Study: Gibbs’ Thermodynamic Graphical Method”, began detailing some of the graphical thermodynamics representations of Willard Gibbs; the following is an example of Kriz's illustrative work, which shows Maxwell's graphical model based on Gibbs' original graphical method; information highlighted in light blue shows a connection to the equation of state: [2]
