How to use this table.

The top row gives the variable in the top of the partial derivative. For example, to find   ∂H
∂p V
, go to the column with ∂ H in the top

and down to the row with  


∂p V
. You quickly see that    

others, which is why we use certain thermodynamic potentials for certain independent variables.
