Physics 101: Lecture 30, Pg 4 Thermodynamics Thermodynamics Dynamics of thermal processes, i.e. when a system interacts with its surroundings via thermal processes : system surroundings P,V,T The state of the system (e.g. gas) is determined by P,V and T. Example: gas filled container with piston on open end of container: system = gas at pressure P and temperature T and volume V surroundings = piston and walls of container
