The Joule-Thomson effect is also known as the Joule-Kelvin effect. This effect is present in non ideal gasses, where a change in temperature occurs upon expansion.

Joule-Thomson coefficient[edit]

The Joule-Thomson coefficient is given by

where T is the temperature, p is the pressure and H is the enthalpy.

In terms of heat capacities one has


In terms of the second virial coefficient at zero pressure one has
