SSM
REASONING AND SOLUTION
The plunger of a bicycle tire pump is pushed
down rapidly with the end of the pump sealed so that no air escapes. Since the compression
occurs rapidly, there is no time for heat to ﬂow into or out of the system. Therefore, to a
very good approximation, the process may be treated as an adiabatic compression that is
described by Equation 15.4:
The person who pushes the plunger down does work on the system, therefore
W
is negative.
It follows that the term must also be negative. Thus, the ﬁnal temperature
T
f
must be
greater than the initial temperature
T
i
. This increase in temperature is evidenced by the fact
that the pump becomes warm to the touch.
Alternate Explanation:
Since the compression occurs rapidly, there is no time for heat to ﬂow into or out of the
system. Therefore, to a very good approximation, the process may be treated as an adiabatic
compression. According to the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics, the change in the internal
energy is , since
Q
= 0 for adiabatic processes. Since work is done on the system,
W
is
negative; therefore the change in the internal energy,
Δ
U
, is positive. The work done by the
person pushing the plunger is manifested as an increase in the internal energy of the air in
the pump. The internal energy of an ideal gas is proportional to the Kelvin temperature.
Since the internal energy of the gas increases, the temperature of the air in the pump must
also increase. This increase in temperature is evidenced by the fact that the pump becomes
warm to the touch.

. REASONING AND SOLUTION
The work done in an isobaric process is given by
Equation 15.2: . According to the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics, the change in the internal
energy is .
One hundred joules of heat is added to a gas, and the gas expands at constant
pressure (isobarically). Since the gas expands, the ﬁnal volume will be greater than the
initial volume. Therefore, the term will be positive. Since
Q
= +100 J, and the term is
positive, the change in the internal energy must be less than 100 J. It is not possible that the
internal energy increases by 200 J.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
3
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
The internal energy of an ideal gas is proportional to its
Kelvin temperature (see Equation 14.7). In an isothermal process the temperature remains
constant; therefore, the internal energy of an ideal gas remains constant throughout an
isothermal process. Thus, if a gas is compressed isothermally and its internal energy
increases, the gas is not an ideal gas.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
4
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
According to the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics
(Equation 15.1), the change in the internal energy is
Δ
U
=
Q
–
W
. The process is isochoric,
which means that the volume is constant. Consequently, no work is done, so
W
= 0. The
process is also adiabatic, which means that no heat enters or leaves the system, so
Q
= 0.
According to the ﬁrst law, then,
Δ
U
=
Q
–
W
= 0. There is no change in the internal energy,
and the internal energy of the material at the end of the process is the same as it was at the
beginning.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
5
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
a. It is possible for the temperature of a substance to rise without heat ﬂowing into
the substance. Consider, for example, the adiabatic compression of an ideal gas. Since the
process is an adiabatic process,
Q
= 0. The work done by the external agent increases the
internal energy of the gas. Since the internal energy of an ideal gas is proportional to the
Kelvin temperature, the temperature of the gas must increase.
b. The temperature of a substance does not necessarily have to change because heat
ﬂows into or out of it. Consider, for example, the isothermal expansion of an ideal gas. Since
the internal energy of an ideal gas is proportional to the Kelvin temperature, the internal
energy,
Δ
U
, remains constant during an isothermal process. The ﬁrst law of
thermodynamics gives , or
Q
=
W
. The heat that is added to the gas during the isothermal
expansion is used by the gas to perform the work involved in the expansion. The
temperature of the gas remains unchanged. Similarly, in an isothermal compression, the
work done on the gas as the gas is compressed causes heat to ﬂow out of the gas while the
temperature of the gas remains constant.

The text drawing shows a pressurevolume graph in
which a gas undergoes a twostep process from
A

B

C
.
From A to B
: The volume
V
of the gas increases at constant pressure
P
. According to the
ideal gas law (Equation 14.1), , the temperature
T
of the gas must increase. According to
Equation 14.7, , if
T
increases, then , the change in the internal energy, must be positive.
Since the volume increases at constant pressure ( increases), we know from Equation 15.2, ,
that the work done is positive. The ﬁrst law of thermodynamics (Equation 15.1) states that ;
since and
W
are both positive,
Q
must also be positive.
From B to C
The pressure
P
of the gas increases at constant volume
V
. According to the
ideal gas law (Equation 14.1), , the temperature
T
of the gas must increase. According to
Equation 14.7, , if
T
increases, then , the change in the internal energy, must be positive.
Since the process occurs isochorically (), and according to Equation 15.2,
,
the work done is

zero. The ﬁrst law of thermodynamics (Equation 15.1) states that ; since

. REASONING AND SOLUTION
Since the process is an adiabatic process,
Q
= 0. Since
the gas expands into chamber B under zero external pressure, the work done by the gas is
W
=
P
Δ
V
= 0. According to the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics, the change in the internal
energy is, therefore, zero: . The internal energy of an ideal gas is proportional to the Kelvin
temperature of the gas (Equation 14.7). Since the change in the internal energy of the gas is
zero, the temperature change of the gas is zero. The ﬁnal temperature of the gas is the same
as the initial temperature of the gas.

REASONING AND SOLUTION
A material contracts when it is heated. To
determine the molar speciﬁc heat capacities, we ﬁrst calculate the heat
Q
needed to raise the
temperature of the material by an amount
Δ
T
. From the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics, .
When the heating occurs at constant pressure, the work done is given by Equation 15.2: .
When the volume is constant,
Δ
V
= 0. Therefore, we have:
and
Equation 15.6 indicates that the molar heat capacities will be given by
.
Therefore
and
Since the material contracts when it is heated,
V
f
is less than
V
i
. Therefore the term
is negative. Hence, the numerator of

P
is smaller than the numerator of
C
V
.
Therefore,
C

.

. REASONING AND SOLUTION
When a solid melts at constant pressure, the volume of
the resulting liquid does not differ much from the volume of the solid. According to the ﬁrst
law of thermodynamics, . Hence, the heat that must be added to melt the solid is used
primarily to increase the internal energy of the molecules. The internal energy of the liquid
has increased by an amount
Q
=

f
compared to that of the solid, where
m
is the mass of
the material and
L
f
is the latent heat of fusion.

. REASONING AND SOLUTION
According to Equation 14.7, the Kelvin temperature
T
of
the gas is related to its internal energy
U
by . The change in the internal energy is given by
the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics (Equation 15.1), .
It is desired to heat a gas so that its temperature will be as high as possible. If the
process occurs at constant pressure, so that the volume of the gas increases, work is done by
the gas. The available heat is used to do work
and
to increase the internal energy of the gas.
On the other hand, if the process is carried out at constant volume, the work done is zero,
and all of the heat increases the internal energy of the gas. From Equation 14.7, the internal
energy is directly proportional to the Kelvin temperature of the gas. Since the internal
energy increases by a greater amount when the process occurs at constant volume, the
temperature increase is greatest under conditions of constant volume. Therefore, if it is
desired to heat a gas so that its temperature will be as high as possible, you should heat it
under conditions of constant volume.

11
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
A hypothetical device takes 10 000 J of heat from a hot
reservoir and 5000 J of heat from a cold reservoir and produces 15 000 J of work.
a. According to the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics, . This is a statement of energy
conservation. The hypothetical device does not violate energy conservation. It does not
create or destroy energy. It converts one form of energy (15 000 J of heat) into another form
of energy (15 000 J of work) with no gain or loss.
b. This hypothetical device does violate the second law of thermodynamics. It
converts all of its input heat (15 000 J) into work (15 000 J). Therefore, the efﬁciency of
this device is 1.0 or 100 %. But Equation 15.15 is a consequence of the second law of
thermodynamics and sets the limits of the maximum possible efﬁciency of any heat device.
Since
T
C
is greater than 0 K, the ratio
must be positive. Furthermore, since
T
C
<
T
H
,
the ratio
must be less than one. Therefore, Equation 15.15 implies that the
efﬁciency of any device must be less than 1 or 100%. Since the efﬁciency of the
hypothetical device is equal to 100%, it violates the second law of thermodynamics.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
12
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
According to the second law of thermodynamics, heat
ﬂows spontaneously from a substance at a higher temperature to a substance at a lower
temperature and does not ﬂow spontaneously in the reverse direction. Therefore, according
to the second law of thermodynamics, work must be done to remove heat from a substance
at a lower temperature and deposit it in a substance at a higher temperature. In other words,
the second law requires that energy in the form of work must be supplied to an air
conditioner in order for it to remove heat from a cool space and deposit the heat in a warm
space. An advertisement for an automobile that claimed the same gas mileage with and
without the air conditioner would be suspect. Since the car would use more energy with the
THERMODYNAMICS
air conditioner on, the car would use more gasoline. Therefore, the mileage should be less
with the air conditioner running.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
13
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
Carnot's principle states that the most efﬁcient engine
operating between two temperatures is a reversible engine. This means that a
reversible
engine operating between the temperatures of 600 and 400 K must be more efﬁcient than an
irreversible
engine operating between the
same two temperatures
. No comparison can be
made with an irreversible engine operating between two temperatures that are different than
600 and
.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
14
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
The efﬁciency of a Carnot engine is given by
Equation 15.15:
. Three reversible engines A, B, and C, use the
same cold reservoir for their exhaust heats. They use different hot reservoirs with the
following temperatures: (A) 1000 K; (B) 1100 K; and (C) 900 K. We can rank these
engines in order of increasing efﬁciency according to the following considerations. The ratio
is inversely proportional to the value of
T
H
. The ratio
will be smallest for
engine B; therefore, the quantity 1 –
will be largest for engine B. Thus, engine B
has the largest efﬁciency. Similarly, the ratio
will be largest for engine C; therefore,
the quantity 1 –
will be smallest for engine C. Thus, engine C has the smallest
efﬁciency. Hence, the engines are, in order of increasing efﬁciency: engine C, engine A, and
engine B.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
15
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
The efﬁciency of a Carnot engine is given by
Equation 15.15:
.
a. Lowering the Kelvin temperature of the cold reservoir by a factor of four makes
the ratio
onefourth as great.
b. Raising the Kelvin temperature of the hot reservoir by a factor of four makes the
ratio
onefourth as great.
c. Cutting the Kelvin temperature of the cold reservoir in half and doubling the
Kelvin temperature of the hot reservoir makes the ratio
onefourth as great.
Therefore, all three possible improvements have the same effect on the efﬁciency of a
Carnot engine.

REASONING AND SOLUTION
A refrigerator is kept in a garage that is not
heated in the cold winter or airconditioned in the hot summer. In order to make ice cubes,
the refrigerator uses electrical energy to provide the work to remove heat from the interior of
Chapter 15 Conceptual Questions
the freezer and deposit the heat outside of the refrigerator. In the summer, the "hot" reservoir
will be at a higher temperature than it is in the winter. Therefore, more work will be required
to remove heat from the interior of the freezer in the summer, and the refrigerator will use
more electrical energy. Hence, it will cost more for the refrigerator to make a kilogram of ice
cubes in the summer.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
17
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
The coefﬁcient of performance of a heat pump is given
by Equation 15.17: coefﬁcient of performance =
. From the conservation of
energy,
. Thus, the ratio
can be written
. The job of
a heat pump is to remove heat from a cold reservoir, and deliver it to a hot reservoir;
therefore, the ratio
must be nonzero and positive. Hence, the coefﬁcient of
performance,
, must always be greater than one.
18.
REASONING AND SOLUTION
In a refrigerator, the interior of the unit is the cold
reservoir, while the warmer exterior of the room is the hot reservoir. An air conditioner is
like a refrigerator, except that the room being cooled is the cold reservoir, and the outdoor
environment is the hot reservoir. Therefore, an air conditioner cools the inside of the house,
while a refrigerator warms the interior of the house.
19
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
Heat pumps
can
deliver more energy into your house
than they consume in operating. A heat pump consumes an amount of energy
,
which it
uses to make an amount of heat
ﬂow from the cold outdoors into the warm house. The
amount of energy the heat pump delivers to the house is
. This is greater
than the amount of energy,
, consumed by the heat pump.
20
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
A refrigerator is advertised as being easier to "live with"
during the summer, because it puts into your kitchen only the heat that it removes from the
food. The advertisement is describing a refrigerator in which heat is removed from the
interior of the refrigerator and deposited outside the refrigerator without requiring any work.
Since no work is required, the ﬂow must be spontaneous. This violates the second law of
thermodynamics, which states that heat spontaneously ﬂows from a highertemperature
substance to a lowertemperature substance, and does not ﬂow spontaneously in the reverse
direction. Heat can be made to ﬂow from a cold reservoir to a hot reservoir, but only when
work is done. Both the heat and the work are deposited in the hot reservoir.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
21
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
On a summer day, a window air conditioner cycles on
and off, according to how the temperature within the room changes. When the unit is on it
THERMODYNAMICS
will be depositing heat, along with the work required to remove the heat, to the outside.
Therefore, the outside of the unit will be hotter when the unit is on. Hence, you would be
more likely to fry an egg on the outside part of the unit when the unit is on.
____________________________________________________________________________________________
22
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
The second law of thermodynamics states that the total
entropy of the universe does not change when a reversible process occurs and increases
when an irreversible process occurs .
An event happens somewhere in the universe and, as a result, the entropy of an
object changes by –5 J/K. If the event is a reversible process, then the entropy change for the
rest of the universe must be +5 J/K; this results in a total entropy change of zero for the
universe. If the process is irreversible, the only possible choice for the change in the
entropy of the rest of the universe is +10 J/K; this results in a total entropy change of +5 J/K
for the universe. The choices –5 J/K and 0 J/K are not possible choices for the entropy
change of the rest of the universe, because they imply that the total entropy change would be
negative. This would violate the second law of thermodynamics.
23
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
When water freezes from a lessordered liquid to a more
ordered solid, its entropy decreases. This decrease in entropy does not violate the second
law of thermodynamics, because it is a decrease for only one part of the universe. In terms
of entropy, the second law indicates that the total change in entropy for the entire universe
must be either zero (reversible process) or greater than zero (irreversible process). In the
case of freezing water, heat must be removed from the water and deposited in the
environment. The entropy of the environment increases as a result. If the freezing occurs
reversibly, the increase in entropy of the environment will exactly match the decrease in
entropy of the water, with the result that . If the freezing occurs irreversibly, then the
increase in entropy of the environment will exceed the decrease in entropy of the water, with
the result that
24
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
Since we can interpret the increase of entropy as an
increase in disorder, the more disordered system will have the greater entropy.
a. The popcorn that results from the kernels is more disorderly than a handful of popcorn
kernels; therefore, the popcorn that results from the kernels has the greater entropy.
b. A salad has more disorder after it has been tossed; therefore, the tossed salad has the
greater entropy.
c. A messy apartment is more disorderly than a neat apartment; therefore, a messy
apartment has the greater entropy.

25
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
A glass of water contains a teaspoon of dissolved sugar.
After a while, the water evaporates, leaving behind sugar crystals. The entropy of the sugar
crystals is less than the entropy of the dissolved sugar, because the sugar crystals are in a
more ordered state. However, think about the water. The entropy of the gaseous water
vapor is greater than the entropy of the liquid water, because the molecules in the vapor are
Chapter 15 Conceptual Questions
in a less ordered state. Since the increase in the entropy of the water is greater than the
decrease in entropy of the sugar, the net change in entropy of the universe is positive. The
process, therefore, does not violate the entropy version of the second law of
thermodynamics.
THERMODYNAMICS
26
. REASONING AND SOLUTION
Since we can interpret the increase of entropy as an
increase in disorder, the more disordered state will have the greater entropy. The ﬁnished
building is the most ordered state; therefore it has the smallest entropy. The burnedout shell
of a building is the most disordered state; therefore it has the largest amount of entropy.
The states can be ranked in order of decreasing entropy (largest ﬁrst) as follows:
(3) the burnedout shell of a building, (1) the unused building material, and (2) the building.

REASONING
Energy in the form of work leaves the system, while energy in the
form of heat enters. More energy leaves than enters, so we expect the internal energy of the
system to decrease, that is, we expect the change
Δ
U
in the internal energy to be negative.
The ﬁrst law of thermodynamics will conﬁrm our expectation. As far as the environment is
concerned, we note that when the system loses energy, the environment gains it, and when
the system gains energy the environment loses it. Therefore, the change in the internal
energy of the environment must be opposite to that of the system.
SOLUTION
a. The system gains heat so
Q

work, so

Since the change in the internal energy and the heat released in the process
are given, the ﬁrst law of thermodynamics (Equation 15.1) can be used to ﬁnd the work

determine how far the car can travel. When the gasoline burns, its internal energy decreases

In both steps the internal energy increases, so overall we have

For segment AB, there is no work, since the volume is constant. For
segment BC the process is isobaric and Equation 15.2 applies. For segment CA, the work
can be obtained as the area under the line CA in the graph.
SOLUTION
a. For segment

, the process is isochoric, that is, the volume is constant. For a process in
which the volume is constant, no work is done, so
W
= 0 J .
b. For segment BC, the process is isobaric, that is, the pressure is constant. Here, the
volume is increasing, so the gas is expanding against the outside environment. As a result,
the gas does work, which is positive according to our convention. Using Equation 15.2 and
the data in the drawing, we obtain
c. For segment CA, the volume of the gas is decreasing, so the gas is being compressed and
work is being done on it. Therefore, the work is negative, according to our convention. The
