Isothermal Compression of Gases, Critical Point, Binodal or Coexistence Curve
Concept of Potential Energy Curve for Intermolecular Interactions (Attraction, Repulsion)
Compression Factor, Virial Series, Boyle’s Temperature
Van der Waals Equation of State, Meaning of a and b
Concepts of Work, Heat, Energy
Sign Notation for Work and Heat
First Law of Thermodynamics (differential form and integrated form)
Work of Expansion and Compression Differential Form always δw = - Pext dV
Work of Expansion / Compression Integrated Form depends on whether reversible or not.
Heat capacity at constant volume
Enthalpy H = U + PV
Heat capacity at constant pressure
Comparison of ΔH with ΔU 2) Fundamental Equations You NEED to Know to Obtain all other Equations:
dU = δw + δq (First Law, ALWAYS TRUE)
δw = - Pext dV (Expansion, Compression Work, ALWAYS TRUE) dU = CV dT (ALWAYS TRUE for any process on ideal gases or for any is...
