Cyclic Process

There is process in which, after certain interchanges of heat and work, the system is restored to its initial state, named as cyclic process. In this case U = 0 and Q = W

Free expansions

These are adiabatic process in which no transfer of heat occurs between the system and its environment and no work is done on or by the system. Thus, Q = W = 0 and hence from the first law thermodynamics U =

0.

Heat Transfer
There are three mechanisms for heat transfer : Conduction, Convection and Radiation.
Conduction : Conduction occurs in solids. If the ends of a rod of thermal conductivity k is kept at the
temperature T 1 and T 2 then heat flowing per unit time through the rod is given by (T 1 – T 2 )/R, where R is the
thermal resistance of the rod. If the length of the rod is l and cross-sectional area A then R = l/kA.
Practice Problems :

L = 100 cm, r = 2 cm
(c)

ratio 1 : 2 and their lengths are in the ratio 2 : 1. If the temperature difference between their ends is

[Answers : (1) b (2) d]
Convection : It occurs in fluids.
Heat Radiation : Heat radiation is electro-magnetic energy transfer in the form of electromagnetic waves
(infrared waves) through any medium. Heat radiation has the same character as the electromagnetic wave.
This transfer does not require any material medium. The surface of any material medium emits heat
radiations if its temperature is above 0 K.
Black Body

A perfect black body is one which absorbs all the radiations (from = 0 to = ) incident on it.

The graph is plotted between intensity of heat radiation I and wave length of heat radiation emitted by the black body as shown in figure

7. STATEMENT-1 : If a drop of water falls on a very hot iron, it takes long time to evaporate.

STATEMENT-2 : When a drop of water falls on a very hot iron, it gets insulated from the hot iron due to a thin layer of water vapour which is a bad conductor of heat.

STATEMENT-1 : Emissivity of the body is equal to its absorptive power.

STATEMENT-2 : According to Kirchhoff’s law the ratio of emissive power to absorptive power is same for all surfaces at the same temperature and is equal to the emissive power of a perfectly black body at that temperature. For a perfectly black body absorptive power equals to 1 and emmisivity is defined as the ratio of emmisive power of the body to the emmisive power of the black body.
