  19. Three mechanisms of heat transfer:
    • 1) Conduction
    • 2) Convection
    • 3) Radiation
  20. Define Conduction:
    heat transfer due to direct contact of objects that have different temps
  21. Define Convection:
    heat transfer due to mass movement of gas or liquid molecules
  22. Define Radiation:
    heat transfered by electromagnetic radiation between objects that have different temperatures
  23. Thermal Conductor
    good conductor of heat
  24. Thermal Insulator
    poor conductor of heat
  25. The 1st law of thermodynamics
    the 1st law is a statement of conservation of energy in terms of thermodynamic variables ΔU, Q &W

  26. ΔU =
    change in the systems internal energy
  27. HEAT ENGINE: arrows go ___ and ___
    down and out

  28. THERMAL PUMP: arrows go ___ and ___

  29. ε =
  30. The 2nd law of thermodynamics
    Certain processes do not take place even though they may be consistent with the first law

    - heat will not flow spontaneously from a cooler body to a warmer body

    - in a thermal cycle, heat energy cannot be completely transformed into mechanical work.

    - The work output is always less than the energy input.
