  • Importance Of Chemical Thermodynamics

    Chemical thermodynamics is the study of the interrelation of heat and work with chemical reactions or with physical changes of state within the confines of the laws of thermodynamics. It involves not only laboratory measurements of various thermodynamic properties, but also the application of mathematical methods to the study of chemical questions and the spontaneity of processes. The structure of chemical thermodynamics is based on the first two laws of thermodynamics. Starting from the first and second laws of thermodynamics fundamental equations of Gibbs can be derived which in turn can be utilized to predict the thermodynamic properties of the systems using relatively simple mathematics. During the early 20th century, two major publications,…

  • The Second Law Of Thermodynamics: The Purposes Of Energy And Energy

    For instance if a copper wire is heated and plunged into a beaker full of cold water, the particles in the wire will transfer to the water until thermal equilibrium is reached. At the center of the second law of thermodynamics is a property of thermodynamic systems called entropy. Heat cannot spontaneously flow from a cold object (low entropy) to a hot object (high entropy) in a closed system because it would violate the expression: ∆S≥0 Entropy is a measure of the disorder in a system and it…

  • How Does A Heat Engine Work And Its Operating Principles?

    1.1 What is a heat engine? In thermodynamics, a heat engine is a device/system that uses heat to do work, i.e. it converts heat or thermal energy to mechanical energy. 1.2 How does a heat engine work and its operating principles? For a heat engine to work, it must operate in cycles. Firstly, heat is added into the system. Let the heat added into the system be represented by [Qh]. After that process, some of the energy that were added into the system will be used to do work e.g the…

  • The First And Three Laws Of Thermodynamics

    Energy Thermodynamics is, the everything that happens due to the flowing of the heat from a hot locale to a cold locale, and nothing occurs without the flow of the heat. Additionally, thermodynamics is an exact science. Thermodynamic system is defined by volume, pressure, temperature and chemical make-up. When conditions change the thermodynamic system will respond by changing its temperature, volume, pressure, or chemical make-up and will adjust accordingly in order to reach its original…

  • Physics In Action: The Refrigerator Is An Essential Food Storage Activity

    Physics laws and theories involved in refrigeration ‘ Thermodynamics the branch of physical science concerned with the interrelationship and interconversion of different forms of energy and the behavior of macroscopic systems in terms of certain basic quantities, such as pressure, temperature, etc’ (definition from dictionary.com) The main physics law involved in refrigeration is the 2nd law of Thermodynamics. This law states that heat cannot be transferred from a colder body to a hotter body.…

  • The Laws Of Thermodynamics

    The Laws of Thermodynamics dictate that the universe is constantly becoming more disordered. If this is truly the case, then how have life forms as ordered as the ones here on earth possibly come to exist? The universe’s relentless drift toward pure chaos poses quite a challenge to the order that is life, but by using concepts of thermodynamics and biophysics, life forms continue to subsist. Life itself is in a perpetual struggle with the Laws of Thermodynamics that both are the foundation for…

  • Characteristics Of Carbon Nanotubes

    ions[21]. In most of the studies related to the adsorption behavior of CNTs, analyses are conducted with thermodynamic isotherms models, pH analyses and thermodynamic parameters analyses which may give us an in-depth information of it[23][24]. As specified in the introduction, there are four typical thermodynamic isotherms model for adsorption analyses related to our topic. The most common models for CNTs’ adsorption analyses are Langmuir and Freundlich model. In recent research, it is shown…

  • Comparing The Pressure And Temperature Of Vacuum Water

    Surface and center temperature of the mushroom, ambient humidity and temperature of vacuum chamber have been measured and recorded by the data logger inside the vacuum chamber (see Fig. 1). On the other hand, the control unit that records the pressure data is located outside the vacuum chamber (see Fig. 1). The measured data saved for each 10 seconds. Before starting the cooling, vacuum pump runs half an hour for stabilizing the system. Experiments carried out for three replicates and the…
