Unformatted text preview: 1 THERMODYNAMICS: The First Law Chapter 6 CHEM 6B Dr. DiPasquale CHEMICAL PRINCIPLES: A Quest for Insight Atkins & Jones THERMODYNAMICS: The First Law DONT TALK ABOUT THERMODYNAMICS! 2 THERMODYNAMICS: The First Law c Thermodynamics the study of the transformation of energy c First Law of Thermodynamics Law of Conservation of Energy states: c Energy is neither created nor destroyed, but transferred or converted from one form to another. c Total amount of energy in the universe is constant. Systems c The system is the sample or reaction mixture of interest. Outside the system are the surroundings. Both together are the universe. c Open System matter and energy exchange c Closed System only energy exchange c Isolated or Insulated System no exchange 3 Work and Energy c Work = force distance c 1 joule (J) = 1 kg m 2 s-2 = 1 N m c Capacity of a system to do work = internal energy ( U ) not measurable c We can measure changes in internal energy, designated as U (where U = U f U i ). c Work done on a system increases the internal energy of that system. Types of Work c Expansion: P ex V c Extension: f l c Elevation: mg h c Electrical: q c Surface Expansion: A 4 Example Problem c If an ideal gas expands by 750 mL (0.750 L) against a pressure of 2.00 atm, how much work is done in the expansion? c w = P ex V = (2.00 atm) (0.750 L) c w = 1.50 Latm c 1 Latm = 101.325 J c w = 152 J Reversibility c reversible process a process that can be reversed by an infinitesimal change in a variable; equilibrium reactions c irreversible process a process that can not be reversed by an infinitesimal change in a variable; precipitation reactions c reversible processes are of greatest importance to thermodynamics; irreversible processes - kinetics 5 Reversible, Isothermal Expansion of an Ideal Gas c 1.00 mol of an ideal gas expands reversibly from 1.00L to 22.4L at STP. How much work is done? ln final initial V w nRT V = Reversible, Isothermal Expansion of an Ideal Gas-1-1 22.4 (1.00 mol)(8.31447 J K mol )(298.15 K) ln 1.00 w = 7707.235 J 7.71 kJ w w = = 6 Heat c Heat ( q ) energy transferred as a result of a temperature difference c Change of internal energy by transfer of heat: c U = q c 1 cal (calorie) = 4.184 J (exactly) c The energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 g H 2 O by 1 C c 1 Cal (nutritional calorie) = 1 kcal Heat c Sign of q indicates whether heat is entering or leaving the system. c q = positive: energy enters as heat, internal energy increases: endothermic feels cold to the touch c q = negative; energy leaves as heat, internal energy decreases: exothermic feels warm to the touch 7 Measurement of Heat c Heat capacity the ratio of the heat supplied to the temperature rise produced of a given object: c C = q / T (or rewritten as q = CT ) c specific heat (capacity): C s = C / m c molar heat capacity:...
