I was wondering if anyone could write out Maxwell's relations for partial derivatives with respect to particle count $N_i$. Starting from the fundamental thermodynamic relation,

\begin{align} \mathrm{d}U(S, V, N_i) &= T\mathrm{d}S - P\mathrm{d}V + \sum_{i}\mu _i\mathrm{d}N_i\\ \mathrm{d}U(S, V, N_i) &= \left(\frac{\partial U}{\partial S} \right)_{V, \{N_i\}}\mathrm{d}S + \left(\frac{\partial U}{\partial V} \right)_{S, \{N_i\}}\mathrm{d}V + \sum_{i}\left(\frac{\partial U}{\partial N_i} \right)_{S, V, \{ N_{j\neq i}\}}\mathrm{d}N_i \end{align}

I tried to write a relation by differentiating with respect to particle number, but I want to make sure all of my subscripts are correct. I wrote, for a first Maxwell relation,

$$ \left(\frac{\partial T}{\partial N_i} \right)_{S, V, \{N_{j\neq i}\}} = \left(\frac{\partial \mu _i}{\partial S} \right)_{V, \{N_{j\neq i}\}} = \left(\frac{\partial ^2U}{\partial N_i \partial S} \right)_{V, \{N_{j\neq i}\}} $$

Are these subscripts correct? I just want to make sure this is accurate. If someone could write out the remaining Maxwell relations, that would be great. There should be seven more relations left.

    $\begingroup$ It seems to me what you did is correct. $\endgroup$ Oct 29, 2021 at 18:26
  • $\begingroup$ @ChetMiller Should the middle partial derivative have all $N_i$ held constant or just $N_{j\neq i}$? $\endgroup$ Oct 29, 2021 at 19:27

    $\begingroup$ You're right. I missed that. It should be all of them. $\endgroup$ Oct 29, 2021 at 20:03
