1st Law of Thermodynamics


((Closed System))
3.1 Introduction
We cannot neither create nor destroy energy

This is called Principle of Energy Conservation

It is also called: First Law of Thermodynamics

Energy can cross the boundary of a closed system in two forms:

Heat & Work


3.2 Heat Transfer
If a body is left in a medium of different temperature, energy transfer takes place
until thermal equilibrium is established.
Heat is a form of energy that is transferred due to temperature difference.
Temperature difference is the driving force of heat transfer.

Units:
Heat (Q) kJ
Heat per unit mass q

Q
kJ / kg
m

Rate of heat transfer Q kJ/s kW

Sign convention
- Heat transfer to the system (heat gain), Q > 0
Example:
10 kJ is transferred to the system Q = + 10 kJ or Qin = 10 kJ
- Heat transfer from the system (heat loss), Q < 0
Example:
The heat loss from the system is 20 kJ Q = - 20 kJ or Qout = 20 kJ

3.3 Work
Any energy interaction between the system and the surrounding that is not
driven by the temperature difference is known as "work" (e.g; moving-piston
work, rotating shaft work, etc...)

Units:
Work (W) kJ
Work per unit mass w

W
kJ / kg
m

Rate of work done (power) W kJ/s kW

Sign convention
- Work done by the system, W > 0
Example:
10 kJ work is done by the system W = + 10 kJ or Wout = 10 kJ
- Work done on the system, W < 0
Example:
20 kJ work is done on the system is W = - 20 kJ or Win = 20 kJ

3.4 Mechanical Forms of Work


There are several forms of work. Most commonly known is the one due to the
motion of a piston inside a cylinder.

Moving-piston Work
Work due to the movement of inner face of a piston (part of boundary). It is
usually called "Work of Moving Boundary (Wb)"

behavior, determine the work done during this expansion.

Example:
A hot-air balloon has a volume of 20 m3 at atmospheric pressure 100 kPa. If the
balloon was inflated (expanded) to 1020 m3, how much work was done during
this expansion process. Assume the pressure inside the balloon is approximately
constant.

Solution:
Since the balloon expansion occurs under constant pressure conditions;
Therefore, W = P(V2-V1) = 100(1020 20) = 105 kJ

W=Wnet = Wout Win


E = U + K.E. + P.E.
Then, Q W = U + K.E. + P.E.
where,
U = m (u2 u1)
K.E. = m (v22 v12 )
P.E. = mg (z2 z1)
Note that for a stationary system, K.E. = 0 & P.E. = 0
Q W = U

Example:

Apply 1st law


Q W = E
(Qin Qout ) (Wout Win ) = E
(30 5) (0 0.5) = E
E = 25.5 kJ
Total energy of the system will increase by 25.5 kJ

The air is now compressed to 0.1 m3 in such a way that the temperature inside
the cylinder remains constant. Determine the work done during this process.

0.05 m3 of a gas at 6.9 bar expands in a piston-cylinder assembly to a volume of


0.08 m3. Calculate the work done by the gas, knowing that the expansion
process follows the relation pV1.2 = constant.

heated at constant volume back to the initial conditions. If the mass of the gas
is 0.2 kg, and the work done in the constant-pressure process is 515 J, calculate
the net work done in the cycle, and sketch the cycle on the p-V diagram. Is the
cycle work done by or on the gas ?.
