Thermodynamics PHYS141, S09 Chapter 19 2 Beginnings of a field that, at its more advanced level, is called statistical physics. So far, we have considered point objects, rigid objects, or objects with only a few permitted internal motions. We will now study the behavior of large groups of independent (although simple) objects. Development of this field was simultaneous with the development of machines, power plants, steam engines, etc (1850’s) Will study things like: • How to control/changes a material’s temperature • What happens when objects of different temperature are put into contact • How changes in temperature affect materials • temperature, conservation of energy and work • a microscopic understanding of these phenomena • the laws of thermodynamics and heat engines • Entropy

Temperature PHYS141, S09 Chapter 19 3 In Statistical mechanics, see that the internal energy (kinetic and potential) stored in an object is related to the object’s temperature and to the “number of internal degrees of freedom” (ways of storing energy) the material possesses.

Thermal Equilibrium PHYS141, S09 Chapter 19 4 When two objects are placed in contact, they will exchange energy until they come to a common, stable temperature. They are then said to be in thermal equilibrium. heat: energy exchanged between two objects because of a difference in temperature. When a very “large” object (we’ll see more precisely what we mean by large later) is placed in contact with a very small object, the heat lost/gained by the large object to the small will have a negligible effect on its temperature.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
