2 1st Law of Thermodynamics Conservation of energyWhen heat flows to or from a system, the system gains or loses an amount of energy equal to the amount of heat transferredHeat added to system = increase in internal energy + external work done by the system
3 Adiabatic ProcessesCompression or expansion of a gas where no heat enters or leaves the systemIf we do work on a system by compression, we heat it up.When we expand a system we cool it offRemember blowing on your hands?Warm air rises, expands, cools and forms clouds
5 2nd Law of Thermodynamics Thermal energy never flows spontaneously from cold object to a hot object.A machine cannot be 100% efficientEntropy of closed systems always increases.One of the greatest shortcoming of would-be inventors is lack of understanding of the 1st and 2nd law of Thermodynamics.

8 Efficiency T hot - Tcold Ideal Efficiency = ------------------------ If a steam turbine runs with an input of 400 K and an output of 300 K it has an efficiency of:Eturbine = ( )/400 = ¼ or 25%
9 Entropy 2nd Law of Thermodynamics The entropy of a thermally isolated system never decreases, it can only increase or stay the same. Entropy is a measure of the disorder of a system.Drop an egg and the process can never reverse and become an egg again.In a natural process, high quality energy tends to transform into lower quality energy – order tends to disorder
10 Class ProblemThe air temperature at an altitude of 10 kilometers is a chilling –35°C. Cabin temperatures in airplanes flying at this altitude are comfortable because of air conditioners rather than heaters. Why?
11 Class ProblemThe air temperature at an altitude of 10 kilometers is a chilling –35°C. Cabin temperatures in airplanes flying at this altitude are comfortable because of air conditioners rather than heaters. Why?Airliners have pressurized cabins. The process of stopping and compressing outside air to near-sea-level pressures would normally heat the air to a roasting 55°C (130°F). So air conditioners must be used to extract heat from pressurized air.
12 Class ProblemA piece of iron has a temperature 10°C. A second identical piece of iron is twice as hot. What is the temperature of the second piece of iron?200 C2730 C2930 C3130 CNone of the above
13 Class ProblemThe twice-as-hot iron is 293°C: Consider a stick that is units long. This is like a thermometer that extends from absolute zero (–273°C) to 10°C. Can you see that a stick twice as long is 2 x units long? (Or temperature-wise, 566 K?)
