Unformatted text preview: ). ), However, we don’t like to use in engineering; instead, we like to use mass ( that case, the equation can be reformatted into: where is the molecular mass of the gas (in kg/mol), m is the mass (in kg) and the gas constant, which is different for different gas. ). In is Example: molecular weight for air is 29g/mol (0.029kg/mol), R for air is: Divide volume ( ) from each side of the state equation: This is the most often used gas state equation in aerodynamics. SHU Fall 2012 1 Thermodynamics (Review) LEC 2 Internal Energy The energy of a molecule is the sum of translational, rotational, vibrational and electronic energy. Internal energy ( ) is the sum of the energy of all the molecules in the substance. In aerodynamics, we usually interested in the specific internal energy, which is the internal energy per unit mass ( ). As we mentioned before, a simple compressible system only has two independent properties, thus, , and: | For ideal gas, | | , (this is proved in any thermodynamics book, not here), heat capacity at constant volume is defined to be | , therefore Enthalpy Enthalpy is defined as: It is apparent that , . For air, are co...
