10/3/16 Chapter 6 Continued ● State Functions ○ Only depend on initial and final conditions, not the pathway between them ○ Internal energy, enthalpy, entropy, mass, altitude, and density are state functions ● Internal Energy ○ A system’s total amount of kinetic and potential energy ○ Δ E=E finalinitial ○ Δ Ereactioproductreactants ○ Δ EsystemE surrounding ○ Energy is neither created nor destroyed ● Components of energy ○ Heat (Q)- the transfer of energy due to a temperature difference ○ Work (W)- force acting over a distance ○ Q and W are not state functions ○ Δ E=q+w ○ Positive Negative Q System gains heat System releases heat W System gains energy from System releases energy by work done on it doing work ΔE System gains energy System loses energy ● Calorimetry ○ The science of measuring heat ○ Specific heat capacity (C ❑ - the energy required to raise one g of a substance by 1 K ○ Molar heat capacity - the energy required to raise 1 mol of a substance by 1 K ○ The specific heat of water is so large that it can absorb a large amount of heat energy ● Heat ○ When heat flows into a system, the temperature increases ○ q=mC Δs ● Pressure-Volume work ○ Fluids work via volume change according to this formula. The system is often a fluid-filled piston or balloon ○ w=−PΔV ; PV= L*atm=101.3 J ○ When a fluid expands, work is negative ○ Compression is positive ● Constant Volume (Bomb) Calorimetry ○ The reaction whose q is to be measured occurs in an internal steel chamber (bomb) surrounded by water ○ The chamber’s volume is constant, therefore no work is done. Energy is only released as heat ○ Δ E=q=C ΔT ○ qcal=-qrxn ● Enthalpy ○ H≡E+PV ○ Since E, P, and V are all state functions, so is Enthalpy (H) ○ Change in enthalpy is Δ E+PΔV ■ Does not concern with work; only the effects of heat ■ Notice that there is no change in Pressure ○ At constant P, the system’s enthalpy is the energy flow as heat ○ For a reaction at constant pressure, Δ Hreactionproductreactants ○ If Δ H is positive, the reaction is exothermic ● Constant pressure calorimetry (Coffee cup calorimetry) ○ Run at at atmospheric pressure and are used to determine Δ H for reactions in solution ○ Any observed temperature increase is due to release of energy ■ qsolnq rxn∗msΔT ● Compare coffee cup and bomb calorimeters ● Constant Volume Constant Pressure Sealed in steel chamber Open to atmosphere Ignition in O2 atmosphere Reaction in solution Work = 0 Work is irrelevant Instrument cost $10K Instrument cost 10 cents -q=CT -q=mCT Gives change in energy of Gives change in enthalpy of reaction reaction
