which keeps the ideal gas equation in the regular form [p.
0] and the temperature of the system into the ideal gas equation.
Of course this definition is incremental and both Zeuner and Stodola solved the related integration problem by assuming the Ideal gas equation (of state) pv=RT and the caloric equation dh=cpdT and after some derivations they both ended with the above mentioned exponential definition.
