What the Second Law Does Defines a new State Function Called “Entropy” S. Predicts the ‘spontaneous’ direction for physical and chemical process based on how the entropy of the universe changes. Designates the upper limit for the efficiency of heat machines…how much work can be extracted from heat transfer.

Isothermal Processes • Recall: Isothermal means Δ T = 0. • Since Δ E = nC V Δ T, then Δ E = 0 for an isothermal process. • Since Δ E = q + w: q = -w (isothermal process)
Example: Isothermal Expansion Consider a mass connected to a ideal gas contained in a “piston”. Piston is submerged in a constant T bath such that Δ T = 0.

Isothermal Expansion (cont.) Initially, V = V 1 P = P 1 Pressure of gas is equal to that created by mass: P 1 = force/area = M 1 g/A where A = piston area g = gravitational acceleration (9.8 m/s 2 )

What students are saying

• 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.
