CHAPTER 6
THERMODYNAMICS”
Brief Summary of the chapter:
1.

Thermodynamics: Science which deals with study of different forms of energy and quantitative relationship.

2.

System & Surroundings: The part of universe for study is called system and remaining portion is surroundings.

3.

State of system & state function: State of system is described in terms of T,
P, V etc. The property which depends only on state of system not upon path is called state function eg. P, V, T, E, H, S etc.

4.

Extensive & Intensive Properties: Properties which depends on quantity of matter called extensive prop. eg. mass, volume, heat capacity, enthalpy, entropy etc. The properties which do not depends on matter present depends upon nature of substance called Intensive properties. eg. T,P, density, refractive index, viscosity, bp, pH, mole fraction etc.

5.

Internal energy: The total energy with a system.
i.e. U = Ee + En + Ec + Ep + Ek + -----U = U2 – U1 or UP – UR & U is state function and extensive properly. If
U1 > U2 energy is released.

6.

Heat (q): It I a form of energy which is exchanged between system and surrounding due to difference of temperature. Unit is Joule (J) or Calorie (1
Calorie = 4.18

7.

J).

First Law of Thermodynamics: It is law of conservation energy. Energy can neither be created not destroyed, it may be converted from one from into another. Mathematically U = q + w, w = –p. V (work of expansion)
U = q – p. V or q = U + p. V, q,w are not state function.
82

But U is state function.
8.

Enthalpy (H): At constant volume V = 0,

qv = U

So H = U + p. V, qp = H2 H1 = H
H = U + P. V.
9.

Relationship between qp, qv i.e. H& U
It is H = U+ ng.RT or qp = qv +

10.

ng.RT

Exothermic and Endothermic reactions: H = –Ve for exothermic and H
= +Ve for endothermic reaction i.e. evolution and absorption of heat.
Eg C+O2
N2 + O 2

11.

CO2 + 393.5 KJ, H = –393.5 KJ (exothermic)
2NO – 180.7 KJ, H
