Two reversible adiabatic can not intersect each other
AB and CB are two reversible adiabatic and they intersect at B.
AC is a reversible isotherm. Through AC we can transfer heat to the cycle ABC which is
A close cyclic pro
Maximum work or available energy from a system
Initially a body of mass m, is at temp T, what is the maximum work that
can be obtained out of it if the environment is at which is lower than
the body temperature T.
For max work output,
If the system
Smart Refrigerators will be able to tell you
if it is consuming too much power or needs
defrosting or you are opening it too often.
For this the microprocessors in it must
incorporate digital thermodynamics.

High Pressure Steam when directed at a
Turbine produces electricity. This HP Steam is
produced from a Boiler which is supplied with
water at High pressure. It has to

2nd law of thermodynamics
Entropy is a property besides Pressure,
Temperature and Volume which is used to
define engineering processes that occur.

For A Cycle
Let a substance undergoes heat and work interactions
and completes a cycle. Say It takes is Q from a hotter
object and it does work.
It cannot go back to
initial state until it rejects some heat Q1 to an object
Second law of thermodynamics
Similarity between heat and work: both are energy, but the difference between them is:
Work can be completely converted to heat but heat can not be completely converted to
Work in a closed cycle or cyclic process.
Properties of Pure substances
Air as a mixture of gases is pure. Water and its vapor in a tank is pure, but air and water
vapor in the liquid form in a tank is not pure .
System and Control Volume
In Thermodynamics the devices such
as heat engines and refrigerators are
systems with an input and an output.
WORK: The IC Engine, in an automobile drives the vehicle by
consuming a fuel, petrol in most cases. The input is
Tutorial -3 (unsteady flow process)
1. Two kg of water at 500 kPa, 20C is heated in a constant pressure process (SSSF)
to 1700C. Find the best estimate for the heat transfer. (6.15) Ans: 12849 kJ
2. A mixing chamber with heat transfer receives 2 kg/s of R
First law applied to flow process
For any system and process the first law can be written as:
E = all forms of energy stored in the system= KE + PE+ U
This form of equation is only suitable for closed process. But for open process
it is better to use the
