Ch 20: Second Law of Thermodynamics 1) Second law: Heat flows from hot to cold. Focus: Heat Engines 2) Heat engine: Converts thermal energy to mechanical energy in a cyclic process. T Hot T Cold Engine W Q h Q c Hot reservoir Cold reservoir Energy conservation: Q h = Q c + W c h W Q Q = Take in heat Q h and expell heat Q c Do work W For each cycle: D U = 0

Take in heat Q c and expell heat Q h Work input W Energy conservation: Q h = Q c + W Same result as engine! Coefficient of performance: W CP h Q = Heat pump: Heat moved into house for electric motor work input W CP c Q = Refrigerator: Heat removed from freezer for electric motor work input * Note direction of arrows compared to engine.

Unformatted text preview: Ch 20: Second Law of Thermodynamics 6) Reversible process: Carried out infinitely slowly—series of equilibrium states. Real processes are irreversible , carried out at finite speed, but can approach reversible. 7) Carnot cycle: Highest possible engine efficiency e : P V A B • • C D • • Hot T h isothermal expansion Q h input B A → C B → Adiabatic expansion Q = 0 A D → Adiabatic compresssion Q = 0 D C → Cold T c isothermal compression Q c output h c h c T T Q Q = * Key result: h c T T 1 e − = Ch 20: Second Law of Thermodynamics 8) Entropy: S D S = 0 for adiabatic process , since D Q = 0. For isothermal process: D U = 0 = Q - W T T S W Q = = ∆ Measure of disorder, S is a system property. Adding heat increases disorder in the system.
