Last Lecture Prof.Naik © 2011 What is thermodynamics? » Study of energy transformations » Relationships among physical quantities of different ubstances affected by such transformations substances affected by such transformations Two approaches » Classical thermodynamics: macroscopic (considers large scale behavior) » Statistical thermodynamics: microscopic (considers molecular scale behavior) In ME200, we focus on understanding large scale behavior using statistical view in a supporting role Dimensions and units

System Prof.Naik © 2011 hat is thermodynamic system? What is thermodynamic system? » Any arbitrary region selected for thermodynamic analysis hat is surroundings? What is surroundings? » The region of space outside the boundaries of the chosen thermodynamic system System boundary may be real/imaginary ; it could be stationary/moving Identification of system and its surroundings is the most critical first step to begin thermodynamic analysis

Types of Systems Prof.Naik © 2011 System interacts with its surroundings in two possible yg p ways » Exchange of mass across boundary » Exchange of energy across boundary Closed System allows transfer of energy only across its boundaries; no mass interaction » Chemical composition within the system may change; but mass remains constant (volume may change) » Closed System = Control Mass
