comment Why is there a sign error in my derivation? Adiabatic expansion of ideal gas: $TV^{1-\gamma}$ is constant
I intended the d to be there since $\frac{1}{y}\frac{dy}{dx} = \frac{d\ln{y}}{dx}$ (if you're not too exact about the notation). What do you mean by "it should be $T_1V_0^{1-\gamma}$"? How did you get there?

Could you tell me with which equation you are not familiar and where you found the typos?

comment What are the six degrees of freedom of the atoms in a solid?
Does this mean that the number of DOF depends on the lattice structure of the solid, so that it isn't the same for all solids?

@TheQuantumPhysicist 6 would be the number of degrees of freedom per atom. Is that what you mean?

comment Why is the unit of hydraulic impedance/resistance kilogram per second and hypermeter?
Thanks, I think I didn't realise that there's different kinds of metres involved.

Thanks for the multiple verifications! Can I ask, where's your last formula from? $Z=\frac{32\mu L}{AD^2}$

@ColinK The answer "there is no deeper meaning" is intuitively unappealing to me :)
