Processes are acts that change the state of the system (heating, performance of work,
chemical reactions, addition of matter, etc.). We are going to deal with energy
exchange between system and surroundin
The first law is a statement of the conservation of energy in a thermodynamic system.
The first law does not impose any other restriction on the way that a process occurs.
We observe that many processes have a te
Motivation for introducing Gibbs and Helmholtz Free
Entropy is a useful criterion for spontaneity in isolated systems.
However, experimentally the majority of processes are studied under constant T and P
1. Calculate the entropy change when argon at 250 C and 1.00 bar in a container of volume 0.500
dm3 is allowed to expand to 1.000 dm3 and is simultaneously heated to 100 0 C.
2. Calculate the change in the entropies of the system and the s
Partial molar quantities
We shall consider mainly nonelectrolyte solutions where the solute is not present
in the form of ions, e.g. sucrose dissolved in water. Since we discuss mixtures we
need to introduce part
If a spark is applied to a mixture of H2 (g) and O2 (g), an explosion occurs and water is formed.
The gaseous water is cooled to 1000 C. Calculate the entropy change when 2 mol of gaseous H2 O
is formed at 1000 C and 1 atm from H2 (g) and
Chemistry is the science of matter and changes that it can undergo.
Physical chemistry is a discipline of chemistry that concerns with the physical
principles that underlie chemistry.
It answers questions concerning the structure of matter an
