What is crystal field theory?
The essence of the theory is that the five d orbitals, which are degenerate and equal in energy in the gaseous metal ion, become differentiated in the presence of an electrostatic field due to the ligands.
What is the physical meaning of function derivatives?
Function derivatives can be thought of as the rate of change of the original function with respect to its variable(s). Most of the physical and chemical phenomena around us could be described as functions that depend on one or more variables. Therefore, by deriving these functions we could understand how these phenomena would be affected by their variables.

What is the difference between isentropic efficiency and intrinsic efficiency?
Isentropic efficiency has the same meaning as intrinsic efficiency, but it is a particular term applied to systems that are analyzed by an adiabatic, reversible first-law analysis.
