MSJ Chapter 6, Lectures 1 - 5
Explain what is meant by a system, surroundings, temperature, and heat in thermodynamics.
(CE 6.3, MSJ 6.2)
Explain the meaning of
E = q + w and relate the change in internal energy to heat and work.
(PSE 6.2, PSE 6.3, QRT 6.25, MSJ 6.2)
Define and write units for heat capacity, specific heat capacity, and molar heat capacity, use heat
capacities to relate heat, mass, and temperature change, and explain why some objects warm up or
cool off faster than others. (PSE 6.4, PSE 6.5, QRT 6.29, QRT 6.33, QRT 6.34, QRT 6.37, MSJ 6.3)
Explain what is meant by PV work and how it relates to the change in energy and the change in
enthalpy. (PSE 6.6, MSJ 6.4)
Define the following terms exothermic, endothermic, enthalpy change (
H), enthalpy of fusion, and
enthalpy of vaporization. (MSJ 6.4)
Calculate the total enthalpy change upon heating or cooling with phase changes. (QRT 6.46, MSJ 6.4)
Use a thermo-chemical reaction equation to calculate the energy transferred as the result of a chemical
reaction. (QRT 6.62, QRT 6.63, QRT 6.67, MSJ 6.6)
Use calorimetric data to determine changes in internal energy and enthalpy.
(QRT 6.81, QRT 6.83, MSJ 6.8)
Explain Hess’s Law, and use it to calculate enthalpy changes for one reaction from other reactions.
(QRT 6.90, QRT 6.94, QRT 6.97, MSJ 6.9, MSJ 6.10)
MSJ Chapter 18, Lectures 6 - 8
Write Boltzmann’s famous equation defining entropy, and explain what it means.
(Lecture 6, MSJ 18.3)
Recognize qualitatively whether the entropy of a substance is high or low and if the entropy increases
or decreases in some physical process or chemical reaction.
(PSE 18.2, CE 18.4, QRT 18.21, QRT 18.22, QRT 18.27, QRT 18.31, MSJ 18.3)

into or out of the system or surroundings. (PSE 18.1, QRT 18.35, QRT 18.45, MSJ 18.3, MSJ 18.5)
Use standard molar entropy values to determine the entropy of a substance and changes in entropy.
(PSE 18.3, PSE 18.4, QRT 18.55, MSJ 18.3, MSJ 18.4).
Use standard Gibbs free energies of formation to calculate changes in the standard Gibbs Free Energy.
(PSE 18.5, MSJ 18.6)
Identify whether a reaction is spontaneous or not from
(QRT 18.57, QRT 18.63, QRT 18.65, MSJ 18.2, MSJ 18.6).
