Satisfies the First and the Second law of Thermodynamics Heat Satisfies the First Law , but it cannot take energy of the Cold Ambient and add back to heat the coffee Heat is transferred between the cup and the cold ambient Example 1 T amb < T coffee First Law Satisfied in both cases as long as energy balances (direction not important) k p U E E Q W Δ + Δ + Δ =- Heat Engine Work can be converted to heat directly. Converting heat to work requires the use of some special device called “heat engines”. Hot Reservoir T H Q in Cold Reservoir T C Q out W net =W out-W in Heat Engine Think the heat engine as a “black box” congaing a working fluid which accepts heat from a high temperature source, turns some into work, and rejects the remainder to a low temperature sink, operating on a cycle. Example 2 Work Heat It satisfies the First and the Second Law . Friction in the fluid generates heat that is transferred to the ambient to lower temperature Work Heat It satisfies the First Law but not the Second Law Thermal Energy Reservoir A (hypothetical) body with a large thermal energy capacity that can absorb or supply finite amounts of heat without undergoing a change in temperature. Hot reservoir (heat source): A reservoir that supplies heat energy. Sun, a furnace, a person in a small room Cold reservoir (heat sink): A reservoir that absorbs heat energy. Atmosphere, river, lake, ocean, the room surrounding a refrigerator 2 Steam Power Plant-Heat Engine Thermodynamic Cycles W out W in Boiler Turbine Condenser Pump Hot Reservoir T H Q H Cold Reservoir T C Q C 1 2 3 4 POWER CYCLE Turbine Heat lost Working fluid: Water The water substance that flows through the four components proceeds through a thermodynamics cycle because the water continually retraces the same change in state, i.e. it comes to the original initial state once a cycle is completed. 1.
