Liu UCD Phy9B 07 2 19-1. Thermodynamic Systems Thermodynamic system: A system that can interact (and exchange energy) with its surroundings Thermodynamic process: A process in which there are changes in the state of a thermodynamic system Heat Q added to the system Q>0 taken away from the system Q<0 (through conduction, convection, radiation) Work done by the system onto its surroundings W>0 done by the surrounding onto the system W<0 Energy change of the system is Q + (-W) or Q-W Gaining energy: +; Losing energy: -
