6 some property must be same for the three systems. This property is temperature. Thus this law is the basis for temperature measurement. Equality of temperature is a necessary and sufficient condition for thermal equilibrium, i.e. no transfer of heat. The First law of thermodynamics is a statement of law of conservation of energy. Also, according to this law, heat and work are interchangeable. Any system that violates the first law (i.e., creates or destroys energy) is known as a Perpetual Motion Machine (PMM) of first kind. For a system undergoing a cyclic process, the first law of thermodynamics is given by: = W Q δ δ (4.2) where = cycle the during transfer heat net Q δ = cycle the during transfer work net W δ Equation (4.2) can be written as: = 0 ) W Q ( δ δ (4.3) This implies that ) W Q ( δ δ must be a point function or property of the system. This property is termed as internal energy, U . Mathematically, internal energy can be written as: W Q dU δ δ = (4.4) The internal energy of a system represents a sum total of all forms of energy viz. thermal,

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
