Did you read all of Chapter Did you read all of Chapter 18 18 for today? for today? a) a) Yes Yes b) b) No No Transforming Energy s The Industrial Revolution was driven by the invention of the steam engine. They changed chemical potential energy to kinetic energy via heat. But how efficient could they be? Limits to efficiency s Energy can be completely converted into heat ost all kinetic energy Most all kinetic energy ends up as heat eventually. s But heat c a n n o t be completely converted into kinetic energy. Some will always remain as heat. The Law of Increasing Disorder s This tendency led to the discovery of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, the Law of Increasing Disorder or he Law if Increasing Entropy: The Law if Increasing Entropy: s Processes occurring naturally, without the addition of outside energy, end with the same, or greater, disorder than they began.
