# 2-Thermodynamics

Here is the slideshow I am using in class: Thermodynamics Slideshow

Textbook: Chapters 9, 12, & 13

## Objectives:

Objectives:

1st Law of Thermodynamics (conservation):

- Internal Energy:
- Temperature:
- qualitatively explain average K of particles being proportional to T
- connect statistical distribution of microscopic energy to macroscopic T & thermo processes.

- Temperature:
- Heat Transfer:
- Thermal Conductivity - design an experiment to test thermal conductivity
- Describe direction of energy transfer in terms of particle interactions
- describe conduction, convection and radiation models for transferring energy
- describe approaching thermal equilibrium in terms of particle interactions and probability

- Work:
- Ideal Gas Law

2nd Law of Thermodynamics (entropy):

## Equations:

Equations:

## Common Misconceptions:

Common Misconceptions:

- A cold body contains no heat.
- There is no limit on the lowest temperature.
- At absolute zero motion of every part of an object stops.
- An object has no mass at absolute zero.
- Sweaters will make you warmer.
- Cold can flow.
- Gases can be compressed to zero volume.
- Heat and temperature are the same thing.
- Heat and cold flow like liquids.
- Pressure is the same as force.
- Skin is a good thermometer.
