cold water mass is greater smaller temperature change Because the cold water mass is greater, it will have a smaller temperature change! The masses of cold/hot have a ratio of 4:1, so the temperature change must have a ratio of 1:4 (cold/hot).

Midterm exam next Tuesday. Chapters 1-4. Thermodynamics will not be on the exam. Homework, including the electric motor, is due today. I will count off 10 points a day for late homework.
Heat Exchange Conduction – molecules touch each other and exchange energy. Convection – hot fluids rise Radiation – electromagnetic radiation like light, infrared, ultraviolet radiation; all frequencies. These are very important!!
Heat conduction If we put a torch to a piece of metal, the molecules in the metal have increased kinetic energy. They collide with adjacent molecules, and the heat moves down the material via these collisions. Some materials transport heat energy more easily than others. Metals are good heat conductors. Wood and plastics are poor.
Heat Conduction Through a Rod Q is proportional to A and temperatures T 2 – T 1 Q is proportional to 1/L where k is called the thermal conductivity W/(m K)
Note in the table on thermal conductivities that air is a very poor heat conductor. In fact, we could say it is a good heat insulator. This is why double pane windows are such good insulators both in the summer and winter. Glass panes are thin and conduct heat much better than air. The layer of air does wonders!
Heat radiation Have you ever sat in front of a campfire and wondered why your face is so warm, and your behind so cold? All objects emit electromagnetic radiation. Waves easily carry energy in the form of light, radar, microwave (cell phone), etc. Our existence depends on heat radiation from the Sun.
Did light the match (wood) demo. Example of radiation.
Heat radiation is noted in terms of radiated power P
e = 1 is a perfect emitter and absorber, and is called a blackbody. e = 0 is an ideal reflector. Inside of a thermos bottle is shiny and is a good reflector. The heat of the container emits radiation, but it is not absorbed by the outer wall.
Consider a system: Automobile engine Human body Simple piston and cylinder We want to consider what happens if we add heat to our system or take heat away. Also let the system do work or have work done on it. What happens to internal energy? The internal energy is the sum of all the kinetic and potential energies.
The Internal Energy of a System If we add heat Q to a system having internal energy E i, the new internal energy of the system is E f = E i + Q. E = E f – E i = Q EiEi E f = E i + Q
Work and Internal Energy If the system does work W on the outside, then the system loses internal energy. E i – E f = W E = E f – E i = -W Ei Ei E f = E i -W
First Law of Thermodynamics (Conservation of Energy) Let’s combine the last two equations: E = E f – E i = Q E = E f – E i = -W Because both heat flow and work can occur, the change in internal energy of a system depends on both Q and W. First law of thermodynamics
Signs of Q and W *** Q positiveSystem gains heat Q negativeSystem loses heat W positiveWork done by system W negativeWork done on system The convention for W is opposite of that in chemistry.
The internal energy E depends on the state of the system (P, V, T, m, n). They are called state functions. Heat flow Q and work W are not state functions. They depend on how the system is changed.
A Constant-Pressure Process System does work to push piston in cylinder at constant pressure. Volume expands.
In a general problem like this example, the area under the curve is equal to the work done by the system. Area here is work
We add heat to a system at constant volume. What is the work done? W= P V = 0 Because volume doesn’t change, the work done W must be zero.
Isotherms on a PV diagram
In an adiabatic process, the system is well insulated thermally, and no heat flows (Q = 0). When the piston compresses the volume, the pressure and temperature must both go up.
Adiabatic Heating If we push down quickly, there is no time for heat to flow, and the process is adiabatic. Temperature rises quickly.
When the piston moves up, the volume expands, and the pressure and temperature decrease. Adiabatic process occurs often when the process is rapid, and there is no time for heat to flow.
Conceptual Quiz A) the cooler one B) the hotter one C) both the same Two equal-mass liquids, initially at the same temperature, are heated for the same time over the same stove. You measure the temperatures and find that one liquid has a higher temperature than the other. Which liquid has a higher specific heat?
cooler liquid lower temperature Both liquids had the same increase in internal energy, because the same heat was added. But the cooler liquid had a lower temperature change. Q = mc TQ m T c Because Q = mc T, if Q and m are both the same and T is smaller, then c (specific heat) must be bigger.

Work Done by Thermal Systems
If the first law of thermodynamics is about energy conservation, then the 2nd law is about the way in which energy flows. Examples: A bowl of water sitting in this room does not spontaneously freeze. It is impossible to construct an engine that can extract thermal energy from a system and turn all that energy into work. Thermal systems spontaneously change in only certain ways.
2 nd Law of Thermodynamics We can discuss this law in a number of ways. The law basically states the way in which heat flow occurs. Heat flow between two objects brought together in thermal contact always goes from the hotter object to the colder object. Lots of ways to say the same thing!
Heat Engines An engine is a device that converts heat into mechanical work. Engines must operate in cycles in order to be useful. A piston and cylinder must return to original position. The change in internal energy is zero. An engine operates between two thermal reservoirs.
Our favorite heat engine. Reversible processes. X
Carnot Cycle Carnot’s cycle represents the most efficient engine possible. It operates between two heat reservoirs. All the processes are reversible – two isothermals and two adiabatics. We can show for the Carnot cycle.
Conceptual Quiz: A heat engine absorbs 150 J of heat from a hot reservoir and rejects 90 J of it to a cold reservoir. What is the efficiency of this engine? A) 20% B) 40% C) 60% D) 67% E) 90%
Conceptual Quiz: For the previous heat engine, you are told the temperature of the hot reservoir is 200 o C and that of the cold reservoir is 11 o C. Your response is to A) believe that this is possible. B) laugh at the idea. C) contact a patent lawyer immediately.
It is not possible to construct an engine whose sole effect is to transform a given amount of heat completely into work! Another statement of 2 nd Law of Thermodynamics
For an ideal, reversible heat pump (i.e. Carnot cycle), we have To minimize W we want temperatures to be similar.

Entropy There are several ways to look at entropy, but eventually they are all equal. Entropy is related to disorder in a system. A messy bedroom has more entropy than a clean one. The natural order of the universe is to increase entropy. Your bedroom never naturally becomes clean; it always naturally becomes messy.
Entropy is also related to probability. There is a higher probability that a block of ice will melt at room temperature than it will get colder. Thermodynamics does not prevent either action. The probability of the latter is incredibly small.
Conceptual Quiz: Humpty Dumpty falls off and breaks. Can he get back together again? A) Yes, very easily. B) Yes, but with extremely low probability. C) No, there is no possibility. D) Are you kidding us? Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall, Humpty Dumpty had a great fall; All the King's horses and all the King's men, Couldn't put Humpty together again.
Answer: B From what we just learned, this is only a question of probabilities. And no, I am not kidding!
Entropy is a very fundamental property, and is a state variable. It is determined by the heat flow Q divided by the temperature T.
For a reversible heat engine, the total entropy of the engine cycle is
The total entropy of the universe increases whenever an irreversible process occurs. The total entropy of the universe is unchanged whenever a reversible process occurs. This is another way to state the 2 nd Law of Thermodynamics.
There is some really bad news here. Because the universe actually works through irreversible processes, the entropy is gradually increasing. There will eventually be a gradual “heat death” of the universe. The universe will be full of energy which cannot be used to perform work! We are doomed!
Order, Disorder, and Entropy As we have stated, entropy is related to disorder. As the entropy of a system increases, its disorder increases as well. GOOD NEWS: When you go home, and your mother fusses about how messy your bedroom is, tell her it is because entropy is increasing, and it is the natural order of the universe. There is little you or your mother can do about it (without doing a lot of work!). She will be impressed by how much physics you have learned!

Conceptual Quiz Conceptual Quiz Given your experience of what feels colder when you walk on it, which of the surfaces would have the highest thermal conductivity? A) a rug B) a steel surface C) a concrete floor D) has nothing to do with thermal conductivity
Conceptual Quiz Conceptual Quiz Given your experience of what feels colder when you walk on it, which of the surfaces would have the highest thermal conductivity? A) a rug B) a steel surface C) a concrete floor E) has nothing to do with thermal conductivity The heat flow rate is k A (T 1 − T 2 ) / L. All things being equal, bigger k leads to bigger heat loss. From the book: Steel = 40, Concrete = 0.84, Human tissue = 0.2, Wool = 0.04, in units of J/(s.m.C°).
