Q3: In your own words: a) what is an adiabatic, b) what is a diathermal boundary (2P) a) insulated; Q = 0 b) no temperature gradient, no resistance to heat transfer, ∇T ⋅ n = 0 Q4: A system boundary has(1P) a) zero surface area b) zero volume c) both d) neither Q5: The dynamic state of a mechanical system, consisting of N mass points, is given by the position and the velocity of each of the mass points. In 3D space the state therefore corresponds to (1P) a) k exp(
E/RT) b) N R T c) 6 N 4 d) σ N
e) k ln(N) scalar variables. Q6: Give the name and metric unit of the quantities below. Mark all thermodynamic properties (state variables, state properties) (4P, 1/2P per line, line must be completely correct) Symbol Name Unit TD property T Temperature Yes K (or °C) 2) p Pressure Pa (or N/m
Yes V Volume m3 Yes U Internal Energy J (or Nm) Yes EML 5104 Classical Thermodynamics, Spring 2010 Q S W Heat flow, Rate of heat transfer Entropy Power, rate of work W (or J/s, or Nm/s) No J/K W (or J/s, or Nm/s) Yes No H Enthalpy J (or Nm) Yes G Gibbs free energy J yes Q9: Explain the difference between intensive and extensive thermodynamic properties (state variables, state properties) (2P) Intensive: independent of size of the system (remember i
i) Extensive: dependent on size of system Q10: What is a) a process (transformation), b) a cycle (2P) a) a change of state b) a process that returns to its initial state Q11: Give the equation of state for an ideal gas. Explain each variable and give its metric units (3P). pV = nRT p: pressure (Pa) V: volume (m3) R: ideal gas constant (8.314 J/mol/K) T: temperature (K) Q12: Make a sketch of the thermodynamic system earth. Draw appropriate boundaries. Denote relevant heat, work, and mass transfer interactions (3P). Points: _______/ 20 P ...
