Relevance of "Calphad" external link?[edit]

No reference to Calphad is made within the article, and as the webpage linked discusses activity coefficients it would be more suitable on the activity coefficient wiki page. Either that, or add an example of how it's used or related to enthalpy of mixing. BlakeC90 (talk) 05:39, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

Sources for information about enthalpy sign conventions[edit]

This may be common knowledge among scientists/engineers, but the information isn't cited per se. BlakeC90 (talk) 05:53, 10 January 2017 (UTC)

I have now added a source for the sign convention for the enthalpy of reaction, which I have placed in the article Enthalpy#Heat of reaction. For enthalpy of mixing the sign convention is the same. Dirac66 (talk) 03:07, 11 January 2017 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

Taking into consideration the lack of information that is out there for some of these article topics, I think the information you have currently gives a good general explanation for what enthalpy of mixing is. It is also clear you put the effort to go through and add links to all relevant diction/topics within the paragraph. I would suggest adding a section on relevant mathematical equations/expressions and maybe adding a few more links to the "See Also" section based on relevance to what's mentioned in the rest of the article.Nlhw13 (talk) 07:14, 14 February 2017 (UTC)

Peer Review Response[edit]

Thank you for your contribution, I'll keep that in mind. The mathematical expression will be added soon, but for the most part they are just general thermodynamic laws. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Ebeginnings (talkcontribs) 23:09, 23 February 2017 (UTC)

Existing or new references?[edit]


I notice that your edit today includes some numbers written as (1), (2) and (3). Are these supposed to be references? If (1) means a cite of the existing reference (1) by Sinnot, this should be indicated using ref name (see examples of a reference with several cites in this or other articles). If (1) is an intended cite of a new reference, it should not be included until you are ready to give detailed bibliographic information: author, title, etc. If (1) means something else, please clarify.

Thank you for pointing that out, I accidentally drafted my ideas onto the main page, and eventually corrected the citation format. Ebeginnings (talk) 01:18, 11 March 2017 (UTC)

This issue has been corrected, all incomplete citations have been added. BlakeC90 (talk) 03:10, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

Peer Review[edit]

The article has good flow in general. However, it seems like it needs more citations, for example in the calculations section. It could also be helpful to move exothermic reactions to a separate section and add a comparison between it and endothermic reactions from the enthalpy prospective. Also, you could expand on the topic of the resulting enthalpy of mixing and how it is not equal to the addition of its component's enthalpies in one of the sections. To add on that, adding the methods of calculation for the enthalpy under the calculations section as points and a brief introduction about them would help. I would also suggest to expand the intermolecular forces section by listing the types of forces based on their strength and the enthalpy they release, which is also a section where referencing other wikipedia pages would be helpful. Overall, the subtitles that were mentioned at the end seem to form a good base for the article, but still need more content.H walaa (talk) 06:55, 27 February 2017 (UTC)

A short explanation of predictive methods (and their complexity) has been added, with references and links. Neither endothermic nor exothermic mixtures individually don't currently have enough content to be treated as their own sections, but this could be expanded upon in the future. Better would probably be to link to their respective wikipedia pages, which has been done. BlakeC90 (talk) 02:31, 11 March 2017 (UTC)
