Physics Revision Notes for Class 11 Chapter 12 Thermodynamics

Class 11 Physics Revision Notes Chapter 12 Thermodynamics consists of all the important theories and explanations related to a very important chapter in physics which is thermodynamics. We all are aware of the definition of thermodynamics that is :

  • Thermodynamics is the branch of physics that deals with the relationships between heat and other forms of energy. In particular, it describes how thermal energy is converted to and from other forms of energy and how it affects matter.
  • It is observed that a higher temperature object which is in contact with a lower temperature object will transfer heat to the lower temperature object. The objects will approach the same temperature, and in the absence of loss to other objects, they will then maintain a constant temperature. They are then said to be in thermal equilibrium.

These notes will provide a helping hand when preparing for exams. Here, students can find the definition of important concepts such as thermal equilibrium, quasi-static process, laws of thermodynamics and work done in a refrigeration process. Viewers will also be witnessing tables which contains specific heat and molar specific heat of substances etc. The information in notes is systematically arranged for utmost convenience.

Practise This Question

A horse is harnessed to a cart. If the horse tries to pull the cart, the horse must exert a force on the cart. By Newton's third law the cart must then exert an equal and opposite force on the horse. Since the two forces are equal and opposite, they must add to zero, so Newton's second law tells us that the acceleration of the system must be zero and therefore no matter how hard the horse pulls, it can never move the cart.
