### Thermal Energy

Milbank High School

Sec. 12.1Temperature and Thermal Energy
• Objectives
• Describe the nature of thermal energy
• Define temperature and distinguish it from thermal energy
• Use the Celsius and Kelvin temperature scales and convert one to the other
• Define specific heat and calculate heat transfer
Thermodynamics
• “The study of heat”
• Kinetic-molecular theory
• Thermal Energy
• Overall energy of motion of the particles that make up an object
• Temperature
Equilibrium/Thermometry
• Conduction
• Thermal Equilibrium
• Thermometer
Celsius and Kelvin
• Celsius
• Water freezes at 0°C
• Boils at 100°C
• Kelvin
• Water freezes at 273 K
• Absolute Zero
• -273°C
• 0 K
Heat and Thermal Energy
• Heat
• The energy that flows between two objects as a result of a difference in temperature (Q)
• Measured in Joules (energy)
• Convection
• Specific Heat

Q = mCΔT

Calorimetry
• A device used to measure changes in thermal energy
• Insulated
• Conservation of Energy in a closed system
• Example Problem
• Heat Transfer in a Calorimeter
Review Concepts…
• Temperature is proportional to the average ________________of its particles.
• Thermal energy is the measure of ______________.
• At absolute zero, ________________.
• Can you take the temperature inside of a vacuum?
• Which liquid would an ice cube cool faster, water or methanol?
• Why do easily vaporized liquids, such as acetone and methanol, feel cool to the skin?
Sec. 12.2Change of State and Laws of Thermodynamics
• Objectives
• Define heats of fusion and vaporization
• State the first and second laws of thermodynamics
• Define heat engine, refrigerator, and heat pump
• Define entropy
Change of State
• Melting point
• Boiling point
• Heat of fusion

Q = mHf

• Heat of vaporization

Q = mHv

• Example Problem
• Melting a Solid and Warming the Resulting Liquid
The First Law of Thermodynamics
• Thermodynamics
• The total increase in the thermal energy of a system is the sum of the work done on it and the heat added to it
• Heat Engine
Refrigeration

Refrigeration-- Cooling by evaporation.

Compress & cool to liquefy a gas (outside the fridge) then boil it in a vacuum (inside the fridge) to absorb heat.

The Second Law of Thermodynamics
• Entropy
• Natural processes go in a direction that maintains or increases the total entropy on the universe
• Things become more disordered
Review Concepts…
• Can you add thermal energy to an object without increasing its temperature?
• When wax freezes, is energy absorbed or released by the wax?
• You are boiling pasta. Will it cook faster if the water is boiling vigorously or if it is boiling gently?
Review
• The second law of thermodynamics states that natural processes go in a direction that maintains or increases total __________.
• First law of thermodynamics says that _________ + _________=___________
• Heat of fusion
• Heat of vaporization
• The three types of thermal energy transfer are _________, _________, and _________.
Review
• Entropy!
• How does it relate to creation/evolution?
• The entropy of the universe always ___________ (increases or decreases).
• An internal combustion engine converts _________energy to ________ energy.
• _________ ________ is the quantity of heat required to raise the temperature of one kilogram of a substance by one kelvin.
Review
• What does the kinetic-molecular theory state?
• _______________is the study of heat.
• When using a thermometer, energy is transferred via a process called ____________.
