Thermodynamic State Functions Depend Only on Final and Initial States DEFN: State function —a property that depends only on the state of a system (e.g P, V or T of an ideal gas) and not how the system was brought to that state. Energy (U) is a state function and is a measure of average motion of gas atoms (depends only on T for ideal gas). U U U dU Δ = = 1 2 1 2 (U is a state function) Work (w) is NOT a state function of a system because it depends on the path of a process and NOT simply the difference between final and initial states (Remember the different work above to compress a gas). w or w w dV P w w V V ext Δ = = 1 2 2 1 2 1 δ (w is a path function: P ext depends on V) Heat (q) also is NOT a state function because it depends on details of the path (temperature) and NOT simply difference in heat between final and initial states. q or q q dT T q q q T T Δ = = 1 2 2 1 2 1 (q is a path function) δ w is an inexact differential δ q is an inexact differential dU is an exact differential
First Law of Thermodynamics DEFN: w q U + = Δ is the First Law of Thermodynamics. Conservation of Energy: Total energy of universe remains constant. Δ E univ = Δ E sys + Δ E surr = 0 ⇒Δ E sys = - Δ E surr Δ U = U f –U i = q + w A B Initial Final The energy of a system (U) is changed by doing work (w) or exchanging heat (q) dU = δ q+ δ w (differential form for infinitesimally small changes) First Law allows us to calculate heat (q), work (w) or energy (U): Constant Volume: δ w = -PdV = 0 dU = q = dT Isothermal ( Δ T = 0, dU =0): dU = 0 ⇒δ w=- q w = -nRTln Adiabatic ( δ q=±0): q=0 dU = w dT T C U T T V ) ( 2 1 = Δ V T q = 2 1 V V V dV nRT w V 2 V 1 ( Δ V = 0, δ w=±0) Change in energy ( Δ U) is work (w) performed plus heat (q) transferred.
