Unformatted text preview: 10/16/2010 1 Introduction to the Second Law of Thermodynamics, Reversible and Irreversible Processes ME 200 Thermodynamics I Purdue University , Dr. Tim Pourpoint – [email protected] Lecture 21 October 15 th , 2010 • Applications of First Law of Thermodynamics – Nozzles – Diffusers – Turbines – Compressors Last Lecture – Throttling Devices – Mixing Chambers – Heat Exchangers • TODAY: Second Law of Thermodynamics ME 200 ME 200 2 10/16/2010 2 This Lecture • Second Law of Thermodynamics – Direction of Thermodynamic Processes – Clausius Statement of the Second Law – Thermal Energy Reservoi Thermal Energy Reservoir – Kelvin – Planck Statement – Entropy Statement – Reversible and Irreversible Processes ME 200 ME 200 3 • First law of thermodynamics – states conservation of energy principle when transforming one form of energy into other – considers only change in energy (or quantity) in such Why Second Law? considers only change in energy (or quantity) in such transformations • Second law of thermodynamics – establishes direction/possibility of processes – provides means for measuring the quality of energy ME 200 ME 200 4 – determines theoretical limits on the performance of engineering devices 10/16/2010 3 Second Law: Direction (a) Spontaneous heat transfer (b) Spontaneous (b) Spontaneous expansion (c) Falling mass Can the reverse process occur spontaneously without any change in ME 200 ME 200 5 surroundings? T = 300 K Consider hot iron block dropped into a tank of room temperature water: State 1 Second Law: Direction T = 800 K T = 280 K T = 320 K State 2a State 2b ME 200 ME 200 6 T = 900 K T = 700 K 10/16/2010 4 T = 300 K Both states 2a and 2b are allowed by the First Law. State 1 The Second Law eliminates State 2a as impossible due to Second Law: Direction T = 800 K T = 280 K T = 320 K State 2a State 2b impossible due to required increase in entropy. ME 200 ME 200 7 T = 900 K T = 700 K Consider rigid tank of high pressure, high temperature air in large sealed room. The tank has a valve that is closed initially....
