    The macroscopic properties that define a substance
  52. What happens if we fix 3 of the state functions
    The other two are then known
  53. What is path dependence?
    A path dependent function is dependent on how one reaches a point. Using a mountain analogy: Height to reach a point is always constant, distance is a function of the route you take to reach tehat point.
  54. Are state functions path dependent?
    No. They are not. It is part of what makes them state functions.
  55. Equilibrium states
    Points at which without an external operator acting, a system will hold in a steady state over time.
  56. 3 Criteria for equilibrium state
    The mechanical properties, chemical properties and temperature throughout a system must be uniform for something to be in an equilibrium state
  57. Reversible vs Irreversible processes
    If a system is changed slowly enough to maintain an equilibrium state, it is considered a reversible process.
  58. Sign convention for heat (q)
    If a system absorbs heat, q is positive. If a system loses heat, q is negative
  59. Sign convention for work on a system (w)

    • If work is done by a system (work flows out), then w is negative.
  60. q
    • Heat of system. function ot work and internal energy
    • q=Image Upload
  61. What can we know about internal energy of a system over an operation
    Its change. We do not know how much internal energy a system posesses, only how much it changes over time
  62. What type of properties are heat and work
    Path properties. They are dependent entirely on path and not functions of state. they are inexact integrals.
  63. Nature of intenral energy (u): What are the 3 things that contribute
    • 1) kinetic energy of motion of hte individual molecules
    • 2) Potential eneryg that arise form interactions between molecules
    • 3) Kinetic and potential energy of nuclei and elctorns with inthe individual molecules.

    • Elctrical: Work performed by current
    • Mechanical : Gross work of physical motion of masses
    • Osmotic: Transportation and concentration of chemicals
  65. What is work defined as?
    A force over distance. IE ENERGY
  66. How do we define reversible work in thermodynamics? (Form and two notes)
    wrev=-\Image Upload

    • Note that if P is not constant, we must deffine it as a function of volume before doing this calculation.
    • Note that dv implies an infintessimal volume change.
  67. Is more work done through reversible or irreversible processes? What do graphs look like?
    • If a process is reversible, it requires more work to do because pressure is assumed constant constant and graph of change is curved.
    • If a process is irreversible, then less work is required as both pressure and volume are assuemd to change. Graph is straight drop of pressure and the straight change of volume.
  68. Which type of process(Reversible or irreversible ) generates more heat? Why?
    • We assume inc U to be constant.
    • With this as a given and the realization that Image Upload
    • there will be more heat generated by irreversible work because there is less actual work done.
  69. What is formula and assumption of irreversible work?
    • Irreversible work is assumed to happen suddenly. Too suddenly to be considered incremental. As such, we use the final pressure to calcualte
    • wirr=-P2(Vfinal-Vinitial)
  70. When is work maximized?
    When a process is reversible.
  71. What happens to internal energy for an isochoric process?
    It is only a function of change of heat as volume is 'fixed'
  72. Isochoric
    Constant volume
  73. What is Enthalpy (H)?
    • Enthalpy is a state function equal to :
    • H= U + PV = internal energy + PRessure * Volume
    • This deffinition is only valid if all work is PV work.
  74. What is the change in heat (q)for a constant pressure system?
    incImage Upload
  75. Endothermic process definition
    • One in which q and w are positive.
    • This implies that heat and work flow into system.
    • This also implies that the surroundings will lose heat and feel colder.
  76. Exothermic Process
    One in which q and w are negative.This implies that heat and work flow out of the system. This also implies that the surroundings will gain heat and feel hotter in temperature.
  77. What are the two forms of heat capacity and why do we have them?
    • Isochoric: Constant Volume
    • Isobaric: Constant Pressure

    Heat capacity is not a state function. It fluctuates fased on sate functions and as suc hwe need to account for environmental conditions.
  78. What should we know about Cv and what is its formula?
    • This is isochoric heat capacity. It implies that there is a constant volume in system. In general, it is less like lab work/real systems.
    • Due to the lack of change in volume, we asusme this to be purely a function of intenral energy
    • Its formula is: Cv=Image Upload
  79. What should we know about CP and what is its formula?
    • This is Isobaric heat capacity. While pressure is constant, volume may vary and we thus may need to account for work. As such it is a function of Enthalpy (H) and is far more common in the lab.
    • Cp = \grImage Upload
  80. What is heat capacity?
    How much heat energy (Joules) a kilogram of a substance must absorb to increase by 1 K in temperature.

    It varies with temperature and type of system.
  81. How are Isochoric and Isobaric heat capacity related?
    Cpm =Cvm +R
  82. When can you use either form of heat capacity to find change in heat?
    When working with an ideal gas, either form of heat capacity is equally valid.
  83. What is formula for change in enthalphy?
    iImage Upload
  84. What is formula for change in internal energy?
