Blood banking
First law of themodynamics
For a control mass, the total energy is:
E=me=U+KE+PE=m(u+ke+pe)
Where:
u: is the internal energy a control mass posses
due to the microscale motion of individual
molecules.
The energy equation
First law of
thermodynamics
Energy can be transformed, but cant be created or destroyed.

Where:

we can estimate the work term as the area below the process curve in
the PV diagram.
However , it is also useful if the whole process curve can be
approximated with an analytical function.
In that case, the integration can be done mathematically.
First law of
thermodynamics
For polytropic process:

Where:

For n=1:
First law of
thermodynamics
Enthalpy:
For a control mass undergoes a
constant pressure process with no
changes in K.E or P.E:
First law of
thermodynamics
The const.-V and const.-P specific heats:
If . = . = 0:
For const. V:

For const. P:

## specific heat: is the amount of heat required per unit mass

to raise the temperature by one degree.
Analysis for a control
volume
Law of mass
Conservation:

First law:
The general form of the first law

The second law of thermodynamics

## Where: S is an extensive property.

Entropy change of an ideal gas
The second law of
thermodynamics
Entropy (irreversible process)
For a control mass

## For a control volume

The third law of thermodynamics

## The entropy of all pure substances (in the

appropriate structural form) can be
assigned the absolute value of zero at the
absolute zero of temperature.
