Combustion of Gasoline 2C 8 H 18 (l) + 25O 2 (g) Æ 18H 2 O (l) + 16CO 2 (g) H rxn = -1.09 x 10 4 kJ 5,450 kJ of energy released per mole of octane Combustion of 1 gallon of gas Æ 136 MJ energy
Energy: capacity to do work or to produce heat Kinetic energy: motion of object, ½mv 2 Potential energy: due to position or composition (bonds, height of a mass) Ex. Combustion of methane (CH 4 ): potential energy stored in bonds in converted to kinetic energy (thermal energy) via heat

The internal energy of a system E is the sum of kinetic and potential energies of all particles. The internal energy is the capacity of a system to do work; its total store of energy. E = q + w q is heat w is work Energy: Heat + Work
Work • Work: change in energy when an object is moved through a distance • Example of work: – compression or expansion of a gas W = -P ex V

Varieties of Work
A system doing work (i.e. expansion of a gas). Work is proportional to the external pressure and change in volume.

w = -P V system In (b), the gas has expanded. The system has done work (-w).
• A gas in a cylinder of an engine expands by 500.0 mL against a pressure of 1.20 atm. How much work is done?

Key Concepts of Thermodynamics E = q + w = heat + work w = motion against an opposing force = -P ex V exothermic: reactions that release energy as heat First Law: energy of universe is constant
A balloon is inflated by heating the air inside it. The volume changes from 4.00 x 10 6 L to 4.50 x 10 6 L by addition of 1.3 x 10 8 J of energy as heat at 1 atm. Calculate E. A car engine does 520. kJ of work and loses 220 kJ. of heat. What is the change in energy of the engine?
