2 FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS (CONSERVATION OF ENERGY) The first law of thermodynamics states that energy can neither be created nor destroyed. So when considering a system, all forms of energy must be accounted for within a system. ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly If done so carefully, it can be said that the total energy at one point in a system must equal the same energy at another point in that same system. Energy Kinetic Energy - Energy associated with the movement (velocity) of the fluid mass (m) KE = ½ m V 2 KE unit weigh = V 2 /2g = V 2 /64.4 (ft) ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly unit weight KE unit mass = V 2 /2 (ft 2 /s 2 )
3 Energy Potential Energy Energy associated with location of fluid mass relative to a datum PE unit weight = z (ft above some reference point) ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly PE unit mass = gz (ft 2 /s 2 ) KE v. PE z = 20 ft V = 5 ft per sec reference = 0 ft A B ITRC/BRAE Cal Poly Calculate the KE and PE at each point Use energy per unit weight units Use energy per unit mass units
