Unformatted text preview: CHEM 300 Fall 2011 The First Law of Thermodynamics (Chapter 2) Laws governing the conversion of heat into energy (mechanical, electrical, chemical). Thermodynamics provides useful relationships between the observable properties of bulk matter (p, T and V) and allows predictions of direction and yields of reactions. No molecular interpretations of complex phenomena and no information regarding the rate of reactions.
