The First Law of

Meeting 6

Section 4-1
So far weve studied two
forms of energy transfer
Work Energy (W)
*Equivalent to raising a weight

Heat (Thermal) Energy (Q)

*Caused by a temperature difference
A note about work and heat:

W W12 or W, but not W2 W1



Q Q12 or Q, but not Q 2 Q1


Both Q and W are path dependent!

Work and Heat are forms of energy
transfers that happens at the boundary of a
As Work and Heat cross the boundary, the
system Energy changes.
Work and Heat are not stored on the system
but the Energy yes.
The Business of the First Law
Energy is not destroyed but it is conserved.
In fact during a thermodynamic process it is
transformed in one type to another.
The first law expresses a energy balance of
the system.
The energy fluxes in a system (Work and
Heat) is equal to the change in the system
The system energy forms

Prior to state the First Law, is

necessary to define the system energy
System energy consists of
three components:
U is internal energy,
KE is kinetic energy, and
PE is potential energy.

NOTE: All values are changes (deltas)

Internal energy..
Internal energy is the energy a molecule
possesses, mostly as a result of:

All these are forms of kinetic energy. We will

neglect other forms of molecular energy which
exist on the atomic level.
Kinetic energy is possessed by a molecule as it
moves through space. It transfers this energy
to other systems by means of collisions in which
its linear momentum changes. Collisions with
such things as thermometers and
thermocouples are the basis for temperature
It is a characteristic of both polyatomic
molecules and atoms.
Molecules (not atoms) also vibrate
along their intermolecular bonds.

The molecule has vibrational

(kinetic) energy in this mode.
Molecules (and atoms) can also
rotate and they possess kinetic
energy in this rotational mode.
They have angular momentum
which can be changed to add or
remove energy.
We will not worry about the microscopic
details of internal energy

Internal energy is a property

of the system.

Often it shows up as a change in

temperature or pressure of the system
but it can also show up as a
change in composition if its a mixture.
The kinetic energy is
given by:
KE m( Vf Vi )
2 2

m( V 2 V1 )
2 2

The energy change in accelerating a mass of
10 kg from Vi= 0 to Vf = 10 m/s is?

Gravity is another force acting
on our system. It shows up in
the potential energy change.

mg(z 2 z 1 )
Work can be done by a change in
elevation of the system

Lets say we have a 10 kg mass that we
drop 100 m. We also have a device
that will convert all the potential energy
into kinetic energy of an object. If the
objects mass is 1 kg and it is initially
at rest, what would be its final velocity
from absorbing the potential from a 100
m drop? Assume the object travels

Some comments about this
statement of the first law
Q W = E
All terms on the left hand side are forms of
energy that cross the boundary of the system
Q in is positive, W out is positive
Right hand side is a change in system energy
Algebraic form of first law
The right hand side of the energy
equation consists of three terms:
E = U + KE + PE
KE - Motion of the system as a whole with
respect to some fixed reference frame.
PE - Position change of the system as a
whole in the earths gravity field.
U - Internal energy of the molecule--
translation, rotation, vibration, [and energy
stored in electronic orbital states, nuclear
spin, and others].
We previously had
conservation of energy
E = U + PE + KE
We can change the total energy E of a
system by
Changing the internal energy, perhaps
best exemplified by heating.
Changing the PE by raising or lowering.
Changing the KE by accelerating or
Conservation of Energy
for Stationary System
Stationary means not moving
-so PE and KE are zero and
the first law becomes

0.01 kg of air is compressed in a piston-cylinder.
Find the rate of temperature rise at an instant of
time when T = 400K. Work is being done at a
rate of 8.165 KW and Heat is being removed at a
rate of 1.0 KW.

Example 4-2
Isothermal Process
An ideal gas is compressed reversibly and
isothermally from a volume of 0.01 m3 and a
pressure of 0.1 MPa to a pressure of 1 MPa. How
much heat is transferred during this process?

Solution on the black board

Example 4-3
Isobaric Process
The volume below a weighted piston contains
0.01 kg of water. The piston area is of 0.01 m2
and the piston mass is of 102 kg. The top face of
the piston is at atmospheric pressure, 0.1 MPa.
Initially the water is at 25 oC and the final state
is saturated vapor (x=1). How much heat and
work are done on or by the water?

Solution on the black board

Isobaric Process
For a constant-pressure process,
Wb + U = PV + U
= (U+PV) = H
Q - Wother = H + KE + PE (kJ)

Example: Boil water at constant pressure


An insulated tank is divided into two parts by a

partition. One part of the tank contains 2.5 kg of
compressed liquid water at 60oC and 600 kPa
while the other part is evacuated. The partition
is now removed, and the water expands to fill the
entire tank. Determine the final temperature of
the water and the volume of the tank for a final
pressure of 10 kPa.
m = 2.5 kg
T1 = 60oC
P1 = 600 kPa
H2O P2 = 10 kPa

E = Q - W
Solution - page 1
First Law: Q - W = E
Q = W = KE = PE = 0
E = U = m(u2 - u1) = 0
u1= u2
No Work and no Heat therefore the internal
Energy is kept constant
Solution - page 2
State 1: compressed liquid
P1 = 600 kPa, T1 = 60oC
vf = vf@60 C = 0.001017 m3/kg

uf = uf@60 C = 251.11 kJ/kg


State 2: saturated liquid-vapor mixture

P2 = 10 kPa, u2 = u1 = 251.11 kJ/kg
uf = 191.82 kJ/Kg, ufg = 2246.1 kJ/kg
Solution - page 3

Thus, T2 = Tsat@10 kPa = 45.81oC
v2 = vf + x2vg
= [0.00101+0.0264*(14.67 - 0.00101)] m3/kg

V2 = mv2 = (2.5 kg)(0.388m3/kg) = 0.97 m3
One kilogram of water is contained in a piston-
cylinder device at 100oC. The piston rests on lower
stops such that the volume occupied by the water is
0.835 m3. The cylinder is fitted with an upper set of
stops. The volume enclosed by the piston-cylinder
device is 0.841 m3 when the piston rests against the
upper stops. A pressure of 200 kPa is required to
support the piston. Heat is added to the water until
the water exists as a saturated vapor. How much
work does the water do on the piston?

Solution - page 2
Process 1-2: The volume stay constant until the pressure
increases to 200 kPa. Then the piston will move.
Process 2-3: Piston lifts off the bottom stop while the
pressure stays constant.

State 2: saturated liquid-vapor mixture

P2= 200 kPa , v2 = v1 = 0.835 m3

Does the piston hit upper stops before or

after reaching the saturated vapor state?

State 3: Saturated liquid-vapor mixture

vf < v3 < vg ==> piston hit the upper stops
before water reaches the saturated vapor state.
Solution - page 4
Process 3-4 : With the piston against the upper
stops, the volume remains constant during the
final heating to the saturated vapor state and the
pressure increases.
