Chapter 14

CHM 158

Spontaneous Process one that proceeds in a given direction with out any outside intervention
Non-Spontaneous Process Occurs only as long as energy continually added to system
Spontaneity Depends on the dispersion of energy is added to system
Second Law of Thermodynamics The total entropy of the universe increase in any spontaneous process
Entropy (S) a measure of distribution of energy in a system at a specific temperature
Quantized Values Motion of molecules
Different molecular states related to molecular motion are separated by specific energies
Microstate A unique distribution of particles among energy levels
3 Types of possible molecular motions 1) Translational 2) Rotational 3) Vibrational
Translational Movements through space O=O ---> or -->-->
Rotational Spinning motion around axis
Vibrational Movments of atoms towards or away from each other ->O=O<- <-O=O->
Boltzmann Equation S=(K)(lm)(W) S=Entropy K=Constant W=#of micro states
ICE Primarily Vibrational( Solid) -Less micro states -Less Entropy
Liquid Water Rotational,vibrational, and some translational (liquid) -More Micro-states -Higher Entropy
Water Vapor -Rotational,Vibrational,Translational (unrestricted)(gas) -Most Micro states -Highest Entropy
Isothermal Process Process that takes place at constant temperature ^S_sys=q_rev/T Entropy change eq
Reversible Process Process that can be run in reverse direction with no net heat flow into or out of system
Third Law of Thermodynamics Entropy of universe increases for a spontaneous process

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
