#### Why can a ship not use the internal energy of sea water to operate its engine?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Shruti Srivastva
For the operation of a heat engine we require a sink at temperature lower than the source and of sufficiently high thermal capacity, which is not possible in the sea.

Question 5. Asked on :08 October 2020:05:39:45 PM

#### What is the conversion o heat into work not possible without sink at lower temperatures?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Anjali Kumari

For converting heat energy into work continuosly, a part of heat energy absorbed from the source has to be rejected. The heat energy can be rejected only if there is a body, whose temperature is less than that of the source. This body at lower temperature is the sink.

Question 6. Asked on :08 October 2020:05:39:07 PM

#### What is the differences between heat and work?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Anjali Kumari

Heat and work are two different ways of transferring energy from one system to another. The the distinction between Heat and Work is important in the field of thermodynamics. Heat is the transfer of thermal energy between systems, while work is the transfer of mechanical energy between two systems.

#### A liquid is being converted into steam at its boiling point. What will be the specific heat of the liquid at this time?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Anjali Kumari

When liquid is converted into steam at its boling point, the temperature of liquid remains constant. i.e., change in temperature ΔT=0. Hence the specific heat, s=ΔQmΔT=ΔQm×0=∞

Question 11. Asked on :08 October 2020:05:33:26 PM

#### A gas has a two principal specific heats. Which one is greater and why?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Anjali Kumari
specific heat at constant pressure is more than the specific heat at constant volume because the gas can expand in the first case, causing more absorption of heat as compared to other one.

Question 12. Asked on :08 October 2020:05:32:40 PM

#### Why a gas has two principal specific heat capacities?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Anjali Kumari
Gas has two specific heat capacities because it has two variables pressure and volume sensitive. ... If volume of the gas is constant and heat is supplied. Then we define specific heat is called specific heat at constant volume (CV). Similarly at constant pressure specific heat capacity is defined as (CP).

Question 24. Asked on :07 October 2020:06:01:58 PM

#### When a gas is suddenly compressed, its temperature rises. Why?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Shruti Srivastva
Sudden compression of a gas is an adiabatic process. The work done in compressing the gas increaces the internal energy of the gas. Hence the temperature of the gas rises.

#### The temperature of a gas rises during an adiabatic compression, although no heat is given to the gas from out side. Why?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Chemistry » Thermodynamics

nisha sheikh
Temperature of gases changes only when internal energy of the gases changes. Temperature of the gas is related to du by du = nCvΔT. Hence for all those infinite possible values of du, you will have infinite possible temperatures, still maintaining constant net heat of the system . i.e dq as zero.

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Anjali Kumari
Heat supplied to a system is always equal to increase in its internal energy only if there is no external work is done by the system.. So delta V is zero and what you get is no work

Question 31. Asked on :07 October 2020:05:49:19 PM

#### State the first law of thermodynamic?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermodynamics

Anjali Kumari

he first law of thermodynamics is a version of the law of conservation of energy, adapted for thermodynamic processes, distinguishing two kinds of transfer of energy, as heat and as thermodynamic work, and relating them to a function of a body's state, called Internal energy.

The law of conservation of energy states that the total energy of an isolated system is constant; energy can be transformed from one form to another, but can be neither created nor destroyed.

For a thermodynamic process without transfer of matter, the first law is often formulated[1][nb 1]

${\displaystyle \Delta U=Q-W}$,
