**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Heat Transfer Mechanisms • Conduction • Conduction is the transfer of heat from one substance to another by direct contact. • Denser substances are better conductors. The direction of heat is always from the warmer to the colder substance. • Consider a slab of face A and thickness L, whose faces are maintained at temperature TH and TC by a hot reservoir and a cold reservoir. • Let Q be the energy that is transferred as heat through the slab, from its hot face to its cold face, in time t. • Experiment shows that the conduction rate Pcond (the amount of energy transferred per unit time) is: k : Thermal conductivity [W/m·K]**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Heat Transfer Mechanisms • A material that readily transfers energy by conduction is a good thermal conductor and has a high value of k. • For the purpose of insulation, we are more concerned with poor heat conductors than with good ones. • For this reason, the concept of thermal resistance R is introduced. The R-value of a slab of thickness L is defined as:**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Heat Transfer Mechanisms • Conduction Through a Composite Slab • Assume a composite slab, consisting of two materials having different thickness L1 and L2 and different thermal conductivities k1 and k2. • Each face of the slab has area A. • In the steady state, the conduction rates through the two materials must be equal. Let TX be the temperature of the interface between the two materials, so that: • After a little algebra,**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Heat Transfer Mechanisms • Substituting TX into either equality yields: • Extending the equation above to apply to any number n of materials making up a slab:**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Checkpoint The figure shows the face and interface temperatures of a composite slab consisting of four materials, of identical thicknesses, through which the heat transfer is steady. Rank the materials according to their thermal conductivities, greatest first. ΔTc> ΔTa > ΔTb = ΔTd kb and kd ties, then ka, then kc.**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Heat Transfer Mechanisms • Convection • Convection is the transfer of heat from one substance to another through the movement of molecules within fluids (liquid or gas). • As example, convection occurs when water comes in contact with an object whose temperature is higher than that of the water. • The temperature of the part of the water that is in contact with the hot object increases, and (in most cases) water expands and thus becomes less dense. • The expanded fluid is now lighter than the surrounding cooler fluid, and the buoyant forces cause it to rise. • Some of the surrounding cooler fluid then flows down to take the place of the rising warmer fluid, and the process can then continue.**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Heat Transfer Mechanisms • Radiation • Radiation is the transfer of heat through electromagnetic waves or photons in the form of rays, waves, or particles. • Radiation does not need a propagating medium and it moves at the speed of light. • The heat radiated by the sun can be exchanged between the solar surface and the Earth’s surface without heating the transitional space. • The rate Prad at which an object emits energy via electromagnetic radiation depends on the object’s surface A and the temperature T of that area in kelvins and is given by: σ : Stefan-Boltzman constant = 5.6704×10–8 W/m2·K4 ε : emissivity of the object’s surface [0..1]**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Problem The cross section of a wall is made of white pine of thickness La and brick of thickness Ld (=2.0La), sandwiching two layers of unknown material with identical thicknesses and thermal conductivities. The thermal conductivity of the pine is ka and that of the brick is kd (=5.0ka). The face area A of the wall is unknown. Thermal conduction through the wall has reached the steady state; the only known interface temperatures are T1 = 25°C, T2 = 20°C, T5 =–10°C. What is the interface temperature T4? • If Lb = Lc but kb = 2kc, can you find T3?**Chapter 18**First Law of Thermodynamics Problem A cube, 10 cm on a side, of rough steel is heated in a furnace to a temperature of 400.0°C. If its total emissivity is 0.97, determine the rate at which it radiates energy from each face. A black body is a body that completely absorbs all the electromagnetic radiation falling on it. A small hole in the wall of an object behaves like a black body. At what rate does radiation escape from a hole 10 cm2 in area in the wall of a furnace whose interior is at temperature of 700oC? • A black body absorbs all the radiation falling on it**Thermal Physics**Chapter 19 Kinetic Theory**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Physics of Gases • As one of the main subjects in thermodynamics, a gas consists of atoms or molecules that fill their container’s volume and exert pressure on the container’s wall. • There are three variables associated with a gas: volume, pressure, and temperature. All these can be related with the motion of the atoms. • The kinetic theory of gases relates the motion of the atoms to the volume, pressure, and temperature of the gas.**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Avogadro’s Number • In working with gas consisted of atoms and molecules, it makes sense to measure the size of the samples in mole. • By doing so, we can be certain that we are comparing samples that contain the same number of atoms or molecules. • One mole is the number of atoms in a 12 g sample of carbon-12. • The number of atoms or molecules in a mole is determined experimentally and is given by the Avogadro’s number: • Amedeo Avogadro suggested that all gases occupying the same volume under the same conditions of temperature and pressure contain the same number of atoms or molecules.**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Avogadro’s Number • The number of moles n contained in a sample of any substance is equal to the ratio of the number of molecules N in the sample to the number of molecules NA in 1 mol: • We can also find the number of moles n in a sample from the mass Msam of the sample and either the molar mass M (the mass of 1 mol) or the molecular mass m (the mass of one molecule):**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Ideal Gases • The objective now is to explain the macroscopic properties of a gas –pressure, volume, temperature– in terms of the behavior of the atoms or molecules that make it up. • Although there are so many different gases, experiments show that if we confine 1 mol sample of various gases in boxes of identical volume and hold the gases at the same temperature, then their measured pressures are nearly the same. • Further experiments show that, at low enough densities, all real gases tend to obey the relation: Ideal Gas Law p : absolute pressure n : number of moles of gas T : temperature (K) R : gas constant = 8.31 J/mol·K • An alternative form of the ideal gas law is: Ideal Gas Law N : number of molecules of gask : Boltzmann constant = R/NA = 1.38×10–23 J/K**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Ideal Gases • Work Done by an Ideal Gas at Constant Temperature (Isothermal Process) • Suppose we put an ideal gas in a piston-cylinder arrangement. • Suppose that the gas expands or contracts from an initial volume Vi to a final volume Vf while we keep the temperature T of the gas constant. • Such a process, at constant temperature, is called an isothermal process. • On p-V diagram, an isotherm is a curve that connects points that have the same temperature. • For n moles of an ideal gas, the equation of the graph is:**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Ideal Gases • The work done by an ideal gas during an isothermal process is: • Completing the calculation: Ideal Gas, Isothermal Process • For an expansion, Vf > Vi the natural logarithm of the ratio is positive the work W is positive. • For compression, Vf < Vi the natural logarithm of the ratio is negative the work W is negative.**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Ideal Gases • Work Done by an Ideal Gas at Constant Volume (Isochoric Process) and at Constant Pressure (Isobaric Process) • To find the work W done by an ideal gas when the temperature varies, we can go back to the equation: • For a constant-volume process (isochoric process), then the equation above yields: Ideal Gas, Isochoric Process • For a constant-pressure process (isobaric process), then the equation above becomes: Ideal Gas, Isobaric Process**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Checkpoints An ideal gas has an initial pressure of 3 pressure units and an initial volume of 4 volume units. The table next to the right gives the final pressure and volume of the gas (in those same units) in five processes. Which processes start and end on the same isotherm? All but c. At isothermal process, pV = constant**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Problem A cylinder contains 12 l of oxygen at 20°C and 15 atm. The temperature is raised to 35°C, and the volume is reduced to 8.5 l. What is the final pressure of the gas in atmospheres (atm)? Assume that the gas is ideal.**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Problem One mole of oxygen (assume it to be an ideal gas) expands at a constant temperature T of 310 K from an initial volume Vi of 12 l to a final volume Vf of 19 l. How much work is done by the gas during the expansion? • Is there any heat transfer Q along the expansion?**Chapter 19**Kinetic Theory Class Group Assignments A styrofoam (k = 0.010 W/m2·K) box used to keep drinks cold at a picnic has total wall area (including the lid) of 0.80 m2 and wall thickness of 2.0 cm.

When the volume of air is compressed to an absolute pressure of 3000 psi (pound per square inch) and stored in a 10-liter portable tank, the air becomes so hot that the tank must be allowed to cool before it can be used.
