What is the strength of thermodynamics?


Open in App
Solution

Thermodynamics:

  • The branch that deals with the relations between heat and other forms of energy is known as thermodynamics.

The strength of thermodynamics:

  • It can be described by process quantities.
  • The main strength and benefits of the thermodynamic method are the universality and adaptability of the thermodynamic rules and their implications for any arbitrary processes at equilibrium.
  • Pressure-volume (mechanical parameters), temperature-entropy (thermal parameters), and chemical potential-particle number (material parameters) are the most frequently encountered conjugate thermodynamic variables.
  • The key concept is that heat is a form of energy corresponding to a definite amount of mechanical work.
