The Lennard-Jones & the Van der Waals equation of state describe similar physics 12 6 ( ) 4 V r R R V V H 2 2 n P a V n b n R T V 4 Would you buy stock in this company?? 5 The first law of thermodynamics: you can't get more energy out than you put in Or Energy is conserved 6 Different pathways can require differing amounts of work. Example: traveling from San Diego to San Francisco 7 For certain issues it only matters where you started and where you end A quantity like this is called a state function. end start 8 Thermodynamic Processes and Thermochemistry The goal of thermodynamics: predict what chemical and physical processes are possible, and under what conditions, and to calculate quantitatively the properties of the equilibrium state that ensues when a process is carried out. 9 Much of thermodynamics involves first defining the system Can heat get in or out of the system? Can mass get in or out of the system? Can the system expand or contract? Can the # of particles inside the system change?...
