General Topic Review for Final Exam 09-106 Spring 2011 S - Know basic thermodynamic definitions, such as state function, heat of formation, standard entropy, heat and work, reversible vs. irreversible processes, enthalpy vs. internal energy, adiabatic process (Many of these refer to ideal gas expansions or compressions.) - Remember that for adiabatic gas processes, P, V, and T change. For reversible, adiabatic processes, a special formula is used and the reversible work formula does not apply - Know the difference between c V and c P (For ideal monatomic gases c V = 3/2 R and c P = 5/2 R) - How to solve heat transfer problems. For instance, you may be asked to find the final (equilibrium) temperature when a hot object is placed in contact with a cold object. You may also be asked to calculate the heat generated by a chemical reaction and the effect that this has on the temperature of the system, be it a gas mixture or a solution. - How to estimate ∆H of a chemical reaction using standard bond enthalpies, enthalpies of
