Hmolpedia coining

In etymologies, Hmolpedia coining is a phrase that refers to a name assigned to an equation or term, first done in Hmolpedia, out of necessity, which previous seems to lack an established name and or date and assignment.

Hmolpedia "coinings" are done largely for organizational and utility purposes, a practice with began to accrue in early 2011 at the 2,000+ article mark. Some of the these assigned names are being collected below. The name "enthalpy", for example, was assigned to the function "U + PV" and given the symbol "H" in 1909 by Dutch physicist Heike Kamerlingh-Onnes, based on the Greek εν (en) ‘in’ and θαλπος (thalpos) ‘to heat’, which combined define the word enthalpos, to warm within. This would be an historically-established name.


‚óŹ Inception synthesis (replacement for the term "birth" owing to the fact that molecules cannot be "born").

A partial list Hmolpedia assigned names for equations is listed below:

Name assigned
 A = - \Delta G \,Goethe-Helmholtz equation
German polymath Johann Goethe was the first to explain how chemical affinity A applies to human affairs (1809), in standard physical chemistry format, and German physicist Hermann Helmholtz was the first to prove that free energy change (isochoric-isobaric: Helmholtz free energy (ΔF) or isothermal-isobaric: Gibbs free energy (ΔG)) is the true measure of chemical affinity (in his disproof of the Thomsen-Berthelot principle). This should not be confused with either the Helmholtz equation (acoustics) or Gibbs-Helmholtz equation (electrochemical thermodynamics).

German-born American Fritz Lipmann who in 1941 “Metabolic Generation and Utilization of Phosphate Bond Energy” did the first work in the development of free energy coupling theory, specifically applied to frog leg contraction energy puzzle.
