Chapter 18: Heat,Work,the First Law of Thermodynamics Thermodynamic systems ± Thermodynamic system Thermodynamic system is any collection of objects that is convenient to regard as a unit, and that may have the potential to exchange energy with its surroundings. A process in which there are changes in the state of a thermo- dynamic system is called a thermodynamic process. ± Signs for heat and work in thermodynamics Q W Q is + if heat is added to system Q is if heat is lost by system W is + if work is done by the system. W is if work is done on the system.

Internal energy and the first law of thermodynamics ± Internal energy Tentative definition: The internal energy U of a system is the sum of the kinetic energies of all of its constituent particles, plus the sum of all the potential energies of interactions among these particles. ± The first law of thermodynamics W Q U U U = = 1 2 Now define the change in internal energy using the first law of thermodynamics. It is known from experiments that while Q and W depend on the path, U does not depend on the path.
