The first law of thermodynamics gives the quantiative relations between
the internal energy of a system and the quantities of heat and work that
the system exchange with surroundings. It express the conservation of
The first law of thermodynamics is true, but not enough ! Why ?
Many thermodynamic processes which don’t violate the 1st
but don’t happen in nature !
We knew that the concepts of mechanical work and energy play an
important role in studying mechanical phenomena.
Concerning to thermal phenomena, there exits a new form of energy
Heat can be transferred from one to other systems
For a system with volume held constant, the effect of heat is to
change the temparature of a system.
Chapter 6 - The second law of thermodynamics. In this chapter, the thermal energy reservoirs, reversible and irreversible processes, heat engines, refrigerators, and heat pumps are introduced first. Various statements of the second law are followed by a discussion of perpetualmotion machines and the thermodynamic temperature scale. The Carnot cycle is introduced next, and the Carnot principles are discussed. Finally, the idealized Carnot heat engines, refrigerators, and heat pumps are examined.
Chapter 6 - The second law of thermodynamics. Introduce the second law of thermodynamics, which asserts that processes occur in a certain direction and that energy has quality as well as quantity; identify valid processes as those that satisfy both the first and second laws of thermodynamics; introduce the concepts of thermal energy reservoirs, reversible and irreversible processes, heat engines, refrigerators, and heat pumps;...
This is the third edition of a physical chemistry textbook designed for a two-semester
undergraduate physical chemistry course. The physical chemistry course is often the
ﬁrst opportunity that a student has to synthesize descriptive, theoretical, and mathe-
matical knowledge about chemistry into a coherent whole. To facilitate this synthe-
sis, the book is constructed about the idea of deﬁning a system, studying the states
in which it might be found, and analyzing the processes by which it can change
Ebook "Thermodynamics Demystifi ed" you referred to the content: Basic principles, properties of pure substances, work and heat, the first law of thermodynamics, the second law of thermodynamics. Invite you to consult.

In this Chapter, we quickly review some basic definitions and concepts from thermodynamics. We
then provide a brief description of the first and second laws of thermodynamics. Next, we discuss the
mathematical consequences of these laws and cover some relevant theorems in multivariate calculus.
Finally, free energies and their importance are introduced.
This book is based on a course that I have been teaching for the past several years to
first year graduate students in the biological sciences at Duke University. These stu-
dents have not studied physical chemistry as undergraduates and typically have not
had more than a year of calculus. Many faculty believe that an understanding of the
principles of physical chemistry is important for all students in the biological sciences,
and this course ...
