As for the transport and equilibrium properties vary spatially in confined fluids, so do the derivative properties. In this undergraduate research project, derivative properties, such as isochoric heat capacity, isothermal compressibility, Joule-Thomson coefficient, and speed of sound, will be calculated for Lennard-Jones fluids conifined by slit-nanopores. These properties will be calculated at different positions within the pore to understand the effect of confinement. The solid-fluid interaction parameters will be varied to analyses its influence on those derivative properties.
