What is an adiabatic system?
An adiabatic system is one which has zero heat flow.
The heat capacity at constant volume is directly related to what entity?
The heat capacity at constant volume is directly related to the internal energy.
The area under a plot of heat capacity at constant pressure vs. the absolute temperature is directly related to what entity?
delta H
What is Hess's Law?
Hess's Law states that the enthalpy change of any reaction is equal to the sum of the enthalpy changes of a series of reactions into which the overall reaction may be divided.
What is the standard heat of reaction?
The standard heat of reaction is equal to the summation of the standard heats of formation of products minus the summation of the standard heats of formation of reactants.
What is an exothermic reaction?
Any spontaneous process in which a system RELEASES heat into the surrounding environment.
In an isothermal reversible gas expansion, what happens to the temperature of the system?
