    • energy cannot be created or destroyed
    • isolated
    • constant
  13. The energy change in a system equals __
    • the work done on the system plus the heat added
    • DeltaE= q+w, where q= heat and w= work
  14. A reaction that combines something with oxygen is called?
  15. What is pressure? What is it measured by?
    • Force per unit area
    • Pascals or 1 atmospheric unit (atm)
  16. What is work?
    • force that produces an object's movement, times the distance moved 
    • Work = Force x Distance

    Work done on a ssystem is __.
    negative positive
  18. I L atm= __ Joules?
  19. What is a state function?
    a function or property whose value depends only on the present state (condition) of the system
  20. The change in a __ is __ when the system returns to its original condition.
    • state function 
    • zero
  21. For __, the change is not __ if the path returns to its original condition.
    • nonstate functions 
    • zero
  22. The amount of heat exchanged between the system and the surroundigns is given the symbol __.

    At constant value (DeltaV=0): qv= __
    At constant pressure: qp= DeltaH
    • q
    • q= DeltaE + PDeltaV
  23. What is enthalpy?
    DeltaH is __
    • a state function whose value depends only on the current state of the system, not on the path taken to arrive at that state
    • enthalpy change or heat of reaction (at constant pressure)
  24. What is the Thermodynamic Standard State?
    most stable form of a substance at 1 atm pressure and at a specified temperature, usually 25 degrees C; 1 M concentration for all substances in solution
  25. What is enthalpy of Fusion DeltaHfusion?

    heats of reaction (DeltaHreaction)
  29. What is endothermic?
    • endo: heat flows into the system from the surroundings and DeltaH has a positive sign
    • exo: heat flows out of the system into the surroundings and DeltaH has a negative sign
