The Joule-Thomson coefficient is given by

\mu_{\mathrm JT} = \left. \frac{\partial T}{\partial p} \right\vert_H

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

In terms of heat capacities one has

\mu_{\mathrm JT} C_V = -\left. \frac{\partial E}{\partial V} \right\vert_T

and

\mu_{\mathrm JT} C_p = -\left. \frac{\partial H}{\partial p} \right\vert_T


In terms of the second virial coefficient one has

\mu_{\mathrm JT} = B_2 -T \frac{dB_2}{dT}
