2 Ch. 2 First law of Thermodynamics: The internal energy, U, of an isolated system is constant. Δ U system = - Δ U surrounding In other words, if the surrounding exchanges energy with the system, the total energy of the surrounding and the system should not change. 0= Δ U Total = Δ U system + Δ U surrounding In a closed system : - Δ U surrounding = q(heat) + w(work) Δ U = q + w 2.2 Work Definition: Any quantity of energy that flows across the boundary between the system and surrounding by a force The work dW is done by moving a object through a small distance d L with force F as dW = F d L =FdL cos θ θ F dL L F dL F w Δ = = If θ =0

### 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.
