t

t

Metabolic rate

U = Q + W

Metabolic rate: rate in which food and oxygen are

transformed into internal energy (to balance losses due

to heat loss and work done).

Types of processes

A: Isovolumetric V=0

C: Isothermal T=0

D: Isobaric P=0

PV/T=constant

First law of thermo-

Dynamics:

U=Q+W

PHY 231

### Isovolumetric processes (line A)

• V=0

• W=0 (area under the curve is zero)

• U=Q (Use U=W+Q, with W=0)

• In case of ideal gas:

• U=3/2nRT

• if P then T (PV/T=constant)

• so U=negative Q=negative

• (Heat is extracted from the gas)

• if P then T (PV/T=constant)

• so U=positive Q=positive

• (Heat is added to the gas)

p

v

PHY 231

p

• Q=0

• No heat is added/extracted from the

• system.

• U=W (Use U=W+Q, with Q=0)

• In case of ideal gas:

• U=3/2nRT

• if T

• U=negative W=negative

• (The gas has done work)

• if T

• U=positive W=positive

• (Work is done on the gas)

v

PHY 231

### isothermal processes

p

• T=0

• The temperature is not changed

• Q=-W (Use U=W+Q, with U=0)

• if V

• W=positive Q=negative

• (Work is done on the gas

• and energy extracted)

• if V

• W=negative Q=positive

• (Work is done by the gas

v

PHY 231

### isobaric process

p

• P=0

• Use U=W+Q

• In case of ideal gas:

• W=-PV & U=3/2nRT

• if V then T (PV/T=constant)

• W: positive (work done on gas)

• U: negative

• Q: negative (heat extracted)

• if V then T (PV/T=constant)

• W: negative (work done by gas)

• U: positive

### Cyclic processes

The system returns to its

original state. Therefore,

the internal energy must

be the same after completion

of the cycle (U=0)

PHY 231

W=-Area under P-V diagram

=-[(50-10)*10-3]*[(1.0-0.0)*105]

-½[(50-10)*10-3]*[(5.0-1.0)]*105=

=4000+8000

W=-12000 J

### Cyclic Process, step by step 1

Process A-B.

Negative work is done on the gas:

(the gas is doing positive work).

U=3/2nRT=3/2(PBVB-PAVA)=

= 1.5*[(1E+5)(50E-03)-(5E+5)(10E-03)]=0

The internal energy has not changed

U=Q+W so Q=U-W=12000 J: Heat that was added to the

system was used to do the work!

PHY 231

W=-Area under P-V diagram

=-[(10-50)*10-3*(1.0-0.0)*105]=

W=4000 J

Work was done on the gas

### Cyclic process, step by step 2

Process B-C

U=3/2nRT=3/2(PcVc-PbVb)=

=1.5[(1E+5)(10E-3)-(1E+5)(50E-3)]=-6000 J

The internal energy has decreased by 6000 J

U=Q+W so Q=U-W=-6000-4000 J=-10000 J

10000 J of energy has been transferred out of the system.

PHY 231

### Cyclic process, step by step 3

Process C-A

W=-Area under P-V diagram

W=0 J

No work was done on/by the gas.

U=3/2nRT=3/2(PcVc-PbVb)=

=1.5[(5E+5)(10E-3)-(1E+5)(10E-3)]=+6000 J

The internal energy has increased by 6000 J

U=Q+W so Q=U-W=6000-0 J=6000 J

6000 J of energy has been transferred into the system.

### Summary of the process

PHY 231

What if the process was done in

the reverse way?

Net work was performed on the

gas and heat extracted from the gas.

We have built a heat pump!

(A fridge)

### What did we do?

The gas performed net work (8000 J)

while heat was supplied (8000 J):

We have built an engine!

PHY 231

### More general engine

turns water to steam

heat reservoir Th

W=|Qh|-|Qc|

efficiency: W/|Qh|

e=1-|Qh|/|Qc|

Qh

work is done

the steam moves the piston

W

Qc

The efficiency is determined

by how much of the heat you

supply to the engine is turned

into work instead of being lost

as waste.

the steam is condensed

Reverse direction: the fridge

heat is expelled to outside

heat reservoir Th

Qh

work is done

a piston compresses the coolant

the fridge is cooled

### The 2nd law of thermodynamics

1st law: U=Q+W

In a cyclic process (U=0) Q=W: we cannot do more work

than the amount of energy (heat) that we put inside

2nd law: It is impossible to construct an engine that,

operating in a cycle produces no other effect than the

absorption of energy from a reservoir and the performance

of an equal amount of work: we cannot get 100% efficiency

What is the most efficient engine we can make

given a heat and a cold reservoir?
