American Journal of Physics
written by Barry R. Parker and Robert J. McLeod
An analogy between black hole physics and thermodynamics is discussed, and equations similar to the usual partial differential relations of thermodynamics are found for black holes. The results can be used to supplement an undergraduate course on thermodynamics.
