• ### Chapter XVI The Second Law of Thermodynamics

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 energy. The first law of thermodynamics is true, but not enough ! Why ? Many thermodynamic processes which don’t violate the 1st law, but don’t happen in nature !

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 8 - Exergy: A measure of work potential. After studying this chapter you will be able to: Examine the performance of engineering devices in light of the second law of thermodynamics; define exergy (also called availability), which is the maximum useful work that could be obtained from the system at a given state in a specified environment; define reversible work, which is the maximum useful work that can be obtained as a system undergoes a process between two specified states;...

• ### THERMODYNAMICS

Progress of thermodynamics has been stimulated by the fi ndings of a variety of fi elds of science and technology. In the nineteenth century, studies on engineering problems, effi ciency of thermal machines, lead to the discovery of the second law of thermodynamics. Following development of statistical mechanics and quantum mechanics allowed us to understand thermodynamics on the basis of the properties of constituent molecules.

Chapter 8 - Exergy: A measure of work potential. In this chapter, we examine the performance of engineering devices in light of the second law of thermodynamics. We start our discussions with the introduction of exergy (also called availability), which is the maximum useful work that could be obtained from the system at a given state in a specified environment, and we continue with the reversible work, which is the maximum useful work that can be obtained as a system undergoes a process between two specified states.

3 Resource Acquisition ALL ORGANISMS ARE EXAMPLES OF NEGATIVE ENTROPY, IN CONTRAST TO the tendency for energy to be dissipated, according to the Second Law of Thermodynamics. Organisms acquire energy to collect resources and synthesize the organic molecules that are the basis for life processes, growth, and reproduction.

• ### Chemical Thermodynamics

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.

• ### THERMODYNAMICS AND KINETICS FOR THE BIOLOGICAL SCIENCES

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 ...
