Transfer of energy from one system to another that is stopped when one system is surrounded by an insulator
The collection of materials that are being studied
A system that allows both matter and energy to cross its system boundary
A system that allows energy but not matter to cross its system boundary
A system that does not allow matter or energy to cross its system boundary
Everything around the system
A system that is large enough that its temperature can be assumed to remain constant. It can supply energy as heat without a significant change in its own temperature.
What information do you need to predict the direction of spontaneous energy flow during a heating process?
You need to know the temperature of both systems
The system with the higher temperature will transfer energy to the system with the lower temperature
