Thermodynamics

Concept
:

Temperature and Heat

Concept
:

Ideal Gases and Kinetic Theory

Concept
:

The Laws of Thermodynamics

Lesson Essential Questions:

Why is there a
Zeroth
Law of Thermodynamics

and what is it?

What is

Thermal
Expansion

and how is it
me
asured?

I understand that heat is
the "transfer of energy
because of a
temperature difference"
but how is this
accomplished?

What is...

Conduction?

Convection?

Lesson Essential Questions:

What is
The Ideal Gas
Law

and how can I use
it?

W
hat is the
Kinetic
Theory of Matter

and
how will it help me
understand the true
nature of matter?

How are the molecules
in a gas distributed?

...the most probable
speed

...the average speed

...the rms speed

What are they and why
do they differ?

I know ab
out the Ideal
Gas Law, what are the
Other Gas Laws
?

Lesson Essential Questions:

What is
Heat

and how is
it related to
Temperature

and
Internal Energy
?

What is
Thermodynamics
?

The
First Law of
Thermodynamics

and
Thermodynamic
Processes

what are
they
?

What is a...

Isobaric

process?

Isothermal

process?

Isochoric

process?

process?

What is the
Second Law
of Thermodynamics

and
how does it affect my
life?

What is a
Heat Engine
?

How does it work?

What is its
Efficiency
?

What is the
Carnot
Cycle
, why is it so
important?

BTW what is a
Cycle

anyway?

Refrigerators
?

...
Heat Pumps
?

...
Air Conditioners
?

Unit Essential Question
:

How do you calculate work done on or
by a gas?
