Thermodynamics

The Second Law of
Thermodynamics

So far we have studied:

conservation of energy (i.e., First Law
of Thermodynamics)

conservation of mass

tabulated thermodynamic properties
and equations of state (e.g., ideal gas
law)

There is a need for another law

one
that tells us what sort of processes
are possible while satisfying
conservation principles

Second Law Statements

Like the 1
st

Law, the 2
nd

Law of
Thermodynamics is based upon a long
history of scientific experimentation

There is no single verbal or math
statement for this Law
-

is a collection of statements,
deductions, and corollaries regarding
thermodynamic processes

that
together form the 2
nd

Law

Two popular statements:

Clausius statement

Kelvin
-
Planck statement

ME 152

Kelvin
-
Planck Statement

“It is impossible for any device
that operates as a cycle to
thermal reservoir and produce
an equivalent amount of work”

ME 152

5

Clausius Statement

“It is impossible to construct a
device that operates as a cycle
whose sole effect is the transfer
of heat from a lower temper
-
ature reservoir to a higher
temperature reservoir”

Thermodynamic Cycles

Cycle energy balance

Types of cycles

heat engines, (aka power cycles)

refrigeration and heat pump cycles

Heat Engines

Net (cycle) work output:

Thermal efficiency

Refrigeration & Heat
Pump Cycles

Net work input:

Coefficient of performance (COP)

Reversible Processes

Reversible Process:

a process that
can be reversed, allowing system
and surroundings to be restored to
their initial states

no heat transfer

no net work

Reversible Processes, cont.

Reversible processes are considered
ideal
processes

no energy is
“wasted”, i.e., all energy can be
recovered or restored

they can produce the maximum amount
of work (e.g., in a turbine)

they can consume the least amount of
work (e.g., in a compressor or pump)

they can produce the maximum KE
increase (e.g., in a nozzle)

when configured as a cycle, they
produce the maximum performance
(i.e., the highest

th

or
COP
)

Irreversible Processes

Irreversible Process

-

process that
does not allow system and surroun
-
dings to be restored to initial state

such a process contains “irreversibilities”

all real processes have irreversibilities

examples:

heat transfer through a temperature difference

unrestrained expansion of a fluid

spontaneous chemical reaction

spontaneous mixing of different fluids

sliding friction or viscous fluid flow

electric current through a resistance

magnetization with hysteresis

inelastic deformation

ME 152

12

Internally Reversible
Processes

A process is called
internally
reversible

if no irreversibilities occur
within the boundary of the system

the system can be restored to its initial
state but not the surroundings

comparable to concept of a point mass,
frictionless pulley, rigid beam, etc.

allows one to determine best theoretical
performance of a system, then apply
efficiencies or correction factors to
obtain actual performance

ME 152

13

Externally Reversible
Processes

A process is called
externally
reversible

if no irreversibilities occur
outside the boundary of the system

heat transfer between a reservoir and a
system is an externally reversible
process if the outer surface of the
system is at the reservoir temperature

The Carnot Principles

Several corollaries (the Carnot
principles) can be deduced from the
Kelvin
-
Planck statement:

the thermal efficiency of any heat
engine must be less than 100%

th

of an irreversible heat engine is
always less than that of a reversible
heat engine

all reversible heat engines operating
between the same two thermal
reservoirs must have the same

The Kelvin
Temperature Scale

Consider a reversible heat engine
operating between
T
H

and

T
L

:

Kelvin proposed a simple relation:

16

The Kelvin Temperature
Scale, cont.

Kelvin’s choice equates the ratio of
heat transfers in a reversible heat
engine to a the ratio of absolute
temperatures

Need a reference to define the
magnitude of a kelvin (1 K)

The Carnot Cycle

The Carnot cycle is the best
-
known
reversible cycle, consisting of four
reversible processes:

temperature

to
T
H

isothermal expansion with heat input
Q
H

from reservoir at

to

The Carnot Cycle, cont.

Note:

the heat transfers (
Q
H
,
Q
L
) can only be
reversible if no temperature difference
exists between the reservoir and system
(working fluid)

the processes described constitute a
power cycle; it produces net work and
operates clockwise on a
P
-
v

diagram

The Carnot heat engine can be reversed
(operating counter
-
clockwise on a
P
-
v

diagram) to become a Carnot
refrigerator or heat pump

the thermal efficiency and coefficients
of performance of Carnot cycles
correspond to maximum performance
