Work, Heat, and Energy W = PE = KE = U
Sec 2.1: Reviewing Mechanical Concepts of Energy Work, Heat, and Energy Energy is conserved, but can be converted to different types Ways to Transfer Energy Into or Out of A System Work – transfers by applying a force and causing a displacement of the point of application of the force. Mechanical Waves – allow a disturbance to propagate through a medium. Heat – is driven by a temperature difference between two regions in space. Matter Transfer – matter physically crosses the boundary of the system, carrying energy with it. Electrical Transmission – transfer is by electric current. Electromagnetic Radiation – energy is transferred by electromagnetic waves W = PE = KE = U

Thermodynamics “Work”
Sec 2.2: Broadening Our Understanding of Work Thermodynamics “Work” Physics definition of work is W = F s But, in thermodynamics often we are working with fluids (non-solids), so we need a broader definition. “Work is done by a system on its surroundings if the sole effect on everything external to the system could have been done by raising (or dropping) a weight.”

Joule’s Experiment (1845-Salford, England)
Sec 2.2: Broadening Our Understanding of Work Joule’s Experiment (1845-Salford, England) Joule dropped a known mass and measured the change in temperature of the water. The experiment was conducted in the basement of his family’s brewery, where there was a constant ambient temperature. The friction of the water molecules rubbing together caused the temperature to increase. Joule’s Equipment - Manchester

Sec 2.2.1: Sign Convention Work Sign Convention W > 0 : Work done BY the system W < 0 : Work done ON the system Sign is not inherently important, but this is the convention. W < 0 : Work done ON the system (System is compressed) W > 0 : Work done BY the system (System expands)

Power = Rate of Energy Transfer
Sec : Power Power = Rate of Energy Transfer Book’s convention: Dot above symbol represents the rate. The rate of work can be expressed as

Sec 2.2 : Work Work Properties Work is NOT a property of a system like V, T, or E. Work occurs when the system undergoes a process. A differential of a property is exact. The differential of work depends upon the path. V

But, work depends on the process.
Sec 2.2 : Work But, work depends on the process. For “Bobby” work depends on the path, since friction is a non- conservative force.

So, we need to have a PV relationship for the process.
Sec 2.2 : Work So, we need to have a PV relationship for the process. The process of changing volume is NOT necessarily in equilibrium. - He balloon popping, gas does not instantly mix with air - Gas cylinder rupture, pressure inside is higher then outside for some time, t For this class, we will used an idealized process, that are completely reversible. We call this type of process - quasi-equilbirium - quasi-static

Non-quasi-static Process
Sec 2.2 : Work Non-quasi-static Process V V V Consider a box initially divided in half. - Initially, one is filled with gas, the other a vacuum. - The divider is then removed. - The gas takes some time to fill the new volume. During that time, there are different local values for P in the volume. There is also likely some heat generated, as the process is irreversible. Thermodynamics ≠ Kinetics

Sec 2.2 : Work Quasi-static V V V V V V V V Now we move the wall slowly, such that the gas is able to adjust instantly. This is a reversible quasi-static process.

Example (2.34): Air contained within a piston-cylinder assembly undergoes three processes in series. Evaluate W. Process 1-2: Compression at constant pressure from p1=10 psi, V1=4.0 ft3 to state 2 Process 2-3: Constant volume heating to state 3, where p3=50 psi Process 3-1: Expansion to the initial state, during which the p-V relationship is pV = constant.

Energy Physics energy types
Sec 2.3: Broadening Our Understanding of Energy Energy Physics energy types Kinetic Energy: Energy of objects in motion Potential Energy: Energy of objects in a field (g,E,B) Internal Energy Spring Chemical Pressure Pressure can be a form of energy if P> Patm Thus, the general energy equation is P Patm
