± Conventions for heat and work ± Work ± Heat

‡ Important points:
± How to determine the direction of heat and work flow ± Integral and specific case equations for heat and work ± How to compute work from property paths


Energy Transfer
‡ Open system or control volume-energy can be added to or taken away from the system by heat transfer, work interactions, or with the mass that flows in or out. ‡ Closed systems--energy transfer is only by heat and work interactions, because by definition no mass goes in or out.

WORK Work--is done by a system (on its surroundings) if the sole effect on everything external to the system could have been the raising of a weight. 5 .

Remember! W < 0 is work done on the system W > 0 is work done by the system 7 .

What is work again? Work--an interaction between a system and its surroundings whose equivalent action can be the raising of a weight. 9 .

So. then work due to compression can be interpreted as the area under a curve in pressure .volume coordinates. if we know p = p(V). 17 .

The constant pressure process is the easiest Since P=c. it¶s pulled out of the integral 2 W! d ´ 1 ! ( 2 ) 1 22 .


TEAMPLAY How do you find the area under the curve (work) when the pressure isn¶t constant? P = f(v) below? P v1 v2 v 24 .

Start with the expression for work 2 W ! ´ pdV 1 25 .Moving boundary work Consider an ideal gas undergoing an isothermal process.

Note that this result is very different from the work for a constant pressure process! 27 .

TEAMPLAY If you start at a P1 and volume 1 and expand to a volume 2. which process will produce more work: (a) a constant pressure or (b) constant temperature process? Why? Justify your answer. 28 .

Polytropic process A frequently encountered process for gases is the polytropic process: PV ! c ! constant Since this expression relates P & V. n V W ! ´ 2 PdV 29 V1 . we can calculate the work for this path.

‡ Another way is by means of heat transfer 32 .Work and heat transfer ‡ Work is one way a system can interact with its surroundings.

HEAT TRANSFER Heat is a form of energy transfer that occurs solely as a result of a temperature difference Q ! f ( (T ) 33 .

Sign convention is the opposite of that for work: ‡ Q > 0: heat transfer to the system ‡ Q < 0: heat transfer from the system 34 .

just as work is not a property.Heat transfer is not a property of a system. Heat energy can be transferred to and from the system or transformed into another form of energy. 35 . 2 Q ! ´ H Q { Q 2  Q1 1 We can¶t identify Q2 (Q at state 2) or Q1.

Unlike u and h which have definite values at any state.Heat and work summary ‡ They are only recognized at the boundary of a system. ‡ They are both path-dependent functions. 36 . not a state. ‡ A system in general does not possess heat or work. as they cross the boundary.
