How do you know what the phase diagram will look like for a Vander Waals fluid, for example? My prof is using the fermi notes and Fermi just makes claims that seem obvious (to him) about convexity and concavity but desu I can't seem to extend my geometrical intuition to thermo.
I can't understand why entropy is a convex function out of the relationship it has to heat, for example.
