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
