w q E First Law of thermodynamics : The energy of the universe is constant A system transfer energy through heat and work w = work E = change in system’s internal energy ( U ) q = heat ENDOTHERMIC q > 0 heat flowing into the system; EXOTHERMIC q < 0 heat flowing out of the system w > 0 surroundings do work on the system; w < 0 system does work on the surrounding UNITS: E , q, w = Energy (J) 1 L.atm ~101.34 J Common type of work associated with chemical processes is work done by a gas (expansion), or work done to a gas (compression). V P w P = external pressure T nC q T mC q or C = Molar Heat Capacity (J/K-mol) C = Specific Heat Capacity (J/K-grams) Constant Volume T C n or m q E v ) ( Constant Pressure PV E H H = Enthalpy T C n or m q H P ) ( State Functions The value of a state function does not depend on how the system arrived at the present state.
