    Exclamation of state?

    Hi,

    The curvature of these lines is due to the nonlinear nature of the ocean's equation of state.

    Regarding the sentence above, I think that "of state" would convey the same concept of " of interest" am I right?

    Thanks

    "equation of state" is a technical term in the science of thermodynamics.

    I have never seen the word 'interest' being used in that context.

    Re: of state?

    I really don't know what 'convey[s] the same concept of " of interest" ' means at all. I suppose, at a syntactic level. you could say that both 'equation of state' and 'person of interest' have the same A of B structure on the face of it.

    But as JM said, 'equation of state' is a technical term. So the structural similarity on the face of it is of no interest.
