Lecture 16 — Internal energy For a system of a single component, U must be a function of T, P (or T, v or P, v ), since there are only two independent state functions Expand the di ff erential of this state function, then, in T and v : dU = ( U/ T ) V dT + ( U/ V ) T dV Heat capacity. The first of these is C v , measured with calorimeter. Extensive or intensive, depend- ing on whether or not we made U intensive. Measurable, evidently, and a state function (since it’s the derivative of a state function). (How does a calorimeter work? Need a gadget for measuring temperature, and a calibrated source of heat. So we have dU = dQ , and we measure dT . Can calibrate a source of heat against a “mechanical work” source of heat.) If we have a constant-volume process, then, Δ U = T 2 T 1 C v ( T ) dT How does C v depend on T ? Molar heat capacity, C v /N ; how do liquids and gases compare? Liquids typically higher, because some of the heat energy is “stored” in disrupting the attractions between molecules. Example: compare C v /N for ideal gas and typical liquid.

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.
