system is always near equilibrium under constant pressure State function property of system which has a definite value Entropy (S) a measure of degree of randomness of a system (state variables) for each state, and does not depend on how Equilibrium state state in which state’s macroscopic properties the state is reached (such as temperature, pressure, volume) (such as temperature) are well defined and do not change with time Temperature (T) average kinetic energy of molecules of a substance (Note: Not to be confused with quantity of heat) Heat (q or Q) a form of energy; an energy transfer due to temperature difference between system and Triple point Temperature and pressure at which 3 phases surroundings of a substance (solid, liquid, vapor) co-exist in Heat capacity (C) Total amount of heat needed to produce a one equilibrium degree rise in temperature of a given substance Work (w or W) Form of energy transfer that may be represented Heat engine Device that converts heat into mechanical energy as a force acting through a distance ENERGY CONVERSION FACTORS TEMPERATURE CONVERSION FACTORS 1 J 1 Nm = 1kg m /s = 0.239 cal = 10 erg = 2.78 x 10 -7kWh T = 9/5 x T + 32 T = 5/9 (T – 32) -4 F C C F = 9.481 x 10 Btu T = T + 459.67 T = T + 273.15 -6 -3 7 R F K C 1 cal 1.163 x 10 kWh =3.968 x 10 Btu = 4.186 x 10 erg F = Fahrenheit;
