2. Thermodynamics


  • Enthalpy of mixing (not reacting species) may be positive (endothermic) or negative (exothermic) depending upon composition of mixing solutions.
  • Entropy increases with increase in occupied space.
  • For an irreversible system, Δs >= 0. But even for reversible and adiabatic process for which Δs = 0, if heat is added to system the overall change in entropy (Δs = ΔQ/T) will be positive.
  • Total entropy change is change in entropy in system plus change in entropy in surrounding.
  • The change in entropy of a system undergoing a cyclic irreversible process is equal to zero.

3.Gibbs energy

  • ΔG = ΔH – TΔS. Isothermal mixing of pure gases leads to decrease in Gibbs energy. Hence, work has to be done on system for separating a mixture of gases into its components.

4.Process and cycles

  • The steady state approximation of radical chain mechanism involves the assumption that the concentration of the intermediate species is not changing rapidly with time (quasi-static state). This is known as bode stein steady state approximation theory.
  • When an insoluble gas is passed through a volatile liquid, some amount of liquid is volatized and escapes with the insoluble gas (the quantity of liquid volatized depends upon the vapour pressure of the liquid and the total pressure). The liquid contained in the perfectly insulated container supplies the latent heat of vaporization and as a result the temperature of the liquid drops.
  • A solid is transformed into vapour without going through liquid phase at temperature below triple point. At triple point all three phases coexist, but do not transform from one phase to the other.
  • When dilute solution of two salts are mixed, the process is associated with change in temperature which is a function of composition.
  • Work performed by ideal gas during adiabatic expansion and adiabatic compression in Carnot cycle will be equal and opposite.
  • Expansion against vacuum in perfectly insulated cylinder has zero work done and there is no change in temperature.
  • For any cyclic process ΔU = 0.

6.Joule thompson

  • At room temperature all gases except hydrogen, helium and neon cool down upon expansion by Joule-Thompson process. These three gases experience the same effect but only at lower temperatures.
  • At inversion temperature Joule-Thompson coefficient is zero. For ideal gases Joule-Thompson coefficient is zero. Ideal gases neither warm nor cool upon being expanded.

7.Kinetic energy of a gas

  • The average kinetic energy of a gas molecule is Kt, where k is Boltzmann constant = 1.38 x 10^-23J/K.
