phyx eqns Thermal

Heat Transfer Q = mcΔT c= specific heat
Phase Change Q = mL L= latent heat ( fusion or vaporization)
Linear Expansion Δl = α lo ΔT α = coefficient of linear expansion lo = original length
Volume Expansion ΔV = β Vo ΔT β = Coefficient of volume Vo = original volume
Rate of Heat Transfer H = Q/t or H = (k A ΔT) / L k = thermal conductivity A = Cross sectional area L = Distance Between ends
Ideal Gas Law PV= nRT P = pressure V= Volume n= number of moles R= Universal Gas Constant T = Temperature
Average Molecular Kinetic Energy K = 3/2 k T k = Boltzman's Constant
Root-mean-squared velocity v rms = √(3 k T / m)
0th Law of Thermodynamics When A & B are in equilibrium with C. A & B are in Equilibrium with each other.
1st law of Thermodynamics ΔU = ΔQ + W U= Internal Energy Q = Heat Transferred to a System W= Work done on the gas ( if work done by the gas it is negative)
Work done by or on a gas W = -PΔV or W = PΔV
Change in internal energy ΔU = 3/2 NkΔT
Efficiency e = W/ QH W = Output QH = Input
Heat Input QH = W + QL QL = Heat that flows out
Ideal Efficiency e ideal = TH - TL / TH TH = High Temp TL = Low Temp
Change in Entropy ΔS = Q/T Q= Heat added
2nd Law of Thermodynamics The total entropy of any system plus that of its environment increases as a result of any natural process ΔS > 0 ΔS = ΔSs + ΔS env
3rd Law of Thermodynamics The entropy of a pure perfect crystal is zero (0) at zero Kelvin (0° K).

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.
