Chapter 4 - Thermodynamics

Thermodynamics study of heat and its effects
1st Law of Thermo conservation of E during heat transfer; E = Q - W
Thermal Expansion increase in length by a solid due to temp increase; change in L = alpha L change in T
Volume Expansion expansion of a liquid when heated; change in V = beta V change in T
Heat E transfer btwn two objects as a result of a diff in temperature
Conduction direct transfer of E from molecule to molecule thru collisions
Convection heat transfer thru mass motion of heated materials; only liquids and gases
Radiation transfer of heat via electromagnetic waves
Conversion of heat units 1 kcal = 1 Cal = 4184 J
heat equation Q = mc change in T; only if phase of object stays the same
Heat of Transformation Q = mL where L is the heat of transformation
heat of vaporization liquid to gas and vice versa
heat of fusion solid to liquid and vice versa
Pressure = F/A
1 atm = 760 torr, 1.013E5 Pa
Work done by the system increases V; positive Work
Word done on the system decreases V; negative Work
Net Work done by a gas = work done by system - work done on system
Constant Pressure isobaric
Adiabatic (constant T) Q = 0
Constant V W = 0
Closed Q = W
Entropy measure of disorder; a system can either increase (irreversible) or remain the same (reversible processes) in this
Entropy Eq change in S = Q/T; no mass needed and change in phase means T is constant

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.
