**Work in Thermodynamic Processes – Assumptions
**

Dealing with an ideal gas Assumed to be in thermodynamic equilibrium

Every part of the gas is at the same temperature Every part of the gas is at the same pressure

**Ideal gas law applies (PV=nkBT)
**

4

**Work in a Gas Cylinder
**

Gas volume V, pressure P A force F is applied to slowly compress the gas Pressure P=F/A

The compression is slow enough for all the system to remain essentially in thermal equilibrium

Work on a Gas

When the gas is compressed

∆V is negative The work done on the gas is positive

**When the gas is allowed to expand
**

∆V is positive The work done on the gas is negative

Work W=F∆y Work done on the gas

**When the volume remains constant
**

No work is done on the gas

W = - P ∆V

**Notes about the Work Equation
**

W = - P ∆V

The pressure remains constant during the expansion or compression

This is called an isobaric process (P=const)

PV Diagrams

Used when the pressure and volume are known at each step of the process The magnitude of the work done on a gas that takes it from initial state to final state is equal to the area under the curve on the PV diagram

This is true whether or not the pressure stays constant

7 8

If the pressure changes, the average pressure may be used to estimate the work done

**PV Diagrams, cont.
**

The curve on the diagram is called the path taken between the initial and final states The work done depends on the particular path

Same initial and final states, but different amounts of work are done

**Types of Thermal Processes
**

Isobaric (P=const)

Pressure stays constant Horizontal line on the PV diagram

Isovolumetric (V=const)

Volume stays constant, work W=0 Vertical line on the PV diagram

Isothermal (T=const)

Temperature stays the same

Adiabatic (Q=const)

**First Law of Thermodynamics
**

Energy conservation law The First Law of Thermodynamics tells that the internal energy of a system can be increased by

Adding energy Q to the system Doing work W on the system

**First Law, cont.
**

Energy transfers occur

By doing work

Requires a macroscopic displacement of an object through the application of a force

By heat

Occurs through the random molecular collisions

**Applicable to all types of processes Provides a connection between microscopic and macroscopic worlds
**

13

**Both result in a change in the internal energy, ∆U, of the system
**

14

**First Law, Equation
**

If a system undergoes a change from an initial state to a final state, then ∆U = Uf – Ui = Q + W

Q is the energy transferred to the system by heat W is the work done on the system ∆U is the change in internal energy

15

**First Law – Signs
**

Signs of the terms in the equation

Q

Positive if energy is transferred to the system by heat Negative if energy is transferred out of the system by heat

W

Positive if work is done on the system Negative if work is done by the system

∆U

Positive if the temperature increases Negative if the temperature decreases

16

**Notes About Work
**

Positive work increases the internal energy of the system Negative work decreases the internal energy of the system This is consistent with the definition of mechanical work

Results of ∆U

Internal energy is related to microscopic characteristics (KE, PE of atoms) Changes in the internal energy result in changes in the measurable macroscopic variables of the system

These include

Pressure Temperature Volume

18

**∆U in Isovolumetric process
**

At V=const work W=0, therefore ∆U=Q For ideal gas U=(3/2)nRT Introduce molar specific heat at constant volume for an ideal gas

Cv = 3/2 R

**Molar Specific Heat
**

A gas with a large molar specific heat requires more energy for a given temperature change The value depends on the structure of the gas molecule The value also depends on the ways the molecule can store energy

20

**The change in internal energy can be expressed as ∆U = nCv∆T
**

n is number of moles

19

Degrees of Freedom

Each way a gas can store energy is called a degree of freedom Each degree of freedom contributes ½ R to the molar specific heat See table 12.1 for some Cv values

Isobaric process

P = const Thermal energy is transferred into gas by the heat Q= nCp∆T For ideal gas Cp - Cv = R

Cp - molar heat capacity at P=const Cp = 5/2 R

Example: Problem #9

n = 1 mole Ti = 0oC P = 1 atm Vf=4Vi Tf - ? Won gas -? R=8.31 J/mole K

P=const

**Example: Problem #17
**

A = 0.15 m2 h =20.0 cm P = 6000 Pa ∆U = - 8.0 J Wby gas -? Q -? R=8.31 J/mole K

PV = nRT W = − P∆V

**W = P∆V ∆U = Qinput + Won gas
**

24

Isolated System

An isolated system does not interact with its surroundings No energy transfer takes place and no work is done Therefore, the internal energy of the isolated system remains constant (∆U=const)

25

Cyclic Processes

A cyclic process is one in which the process originates and ends at the same state

Uf = Ui and Q = -W

The net work done per cycle by the gas is equal to the area enclosed by the path representing the process on a PV diagram

26

Heat Engine

A heat engine takes in energy by heat and partially converts it to other forms In general, a heat engine carries some working substance through a cyclic process

**Heat Engine, cont.
**

Energy is transferred from a source at a high temperature (Qh) Work is done by the engine (Weng) Energy is expelled to a source at a lower temperature (Qc)

28

27

**Heat Engine, cont.
**

Since it is a cyclical process, ∆U = 0

Its initial and final internal energies are the same

**Second Law of Thermodynamics
**

Constrains the First Law Establishes which processes actually occur Heat engines are an important application

Therefore, Qnet = Weng The work done by the engine equals the net energy absorbed by the engine The work is equal to the area enclosed by the curve of the PV diagram

29

30

**Second Law of Thermodynamics
**

No heat engine operating in a cycle can absorb energy from a reservoir and use it entirely for the performance of an equal amount of work

Kelvin – Planck statement Means that Qc cannot equal 0

Some Qc must be expelled to the environment

31

**Summary of the First and Second Laws
**

First Law

We cannot get a greater amount of energy out of a cyclic process than we put in

Second Law

We can’t break even

**Means that e must be less than 100%
**

32

**Thermal Efficiency of a Heat Engine
**

Thermal efficiency is defined as the ratio of the work done by the engine to the energy absorbed at the higher temperature

e≡ Weng Qh = Qh − Qc Qh =1− Qc Qh

**Example: Problem #25
**

Qh = 3Weng a) e -? b) Qc/Qh -?

e= Weng Qh = 1− Qc Qh

34

**e = 1 (100% efficiency) only if Qc = 0
**

No energy expelled to cold reservoir

33

**Heat Pumps and Refrigerators
**

Heat engines can run in reverse

Energy is injected Energy is extracted from the cold reservoir Energy is transferred to the hot reservoir

**Heat Pump, cont
**

The work is what you pay for The Qc is the desired benefit The coefficient of performance (COP) measures the performance of the heat pump running in cooling mode

35 36

**This process means the heat engine is running as a heat pump
**

A refrigerator is a common type of heat pump An air conditioner is another example of a heat pump

**Heat Pump, COP
**

In cooling mode, COP =

Qc W

**Heat Pump, COP
**

In heating mode, COP =

QH W

The higher the number, the better A good refrigerator or air conditioner typically has a COP of 5 or 6

The heat pump warms the inside of the house by extracting heat from the colder outside air Typical values are greater than one
