THERMOCHEMISTRY CHAPTER 5
WHY ENERGY? • Life requires energy • From plants – photosynthesis • To equipment – electricity • Vehicles – fossil fuels • To animals - food
ENERGY FROM WHERE? • Most of our energy as humans • From food • i.e. from chemical reactions • In the world • From chemical reactions
WHAT IS THERMOCHEMISTRY? Quantitative study of chemical reactionsinvolving heat changes Consumeenergy Produce energy
Examples: Food we eat - provides us with energy Burning coal- to produce electrical energy Energy from the sun - responsible for chemical reactions in plants which make them grow
RECALL • FORCE(F) – push/pull exerted on an object • WORK(w) – energy used to cause an object to move against a force (w = Fd) • HEAT(q) – energy transfer as a result of a temperature difference. Heat always flows from a hotter to a colder object until they have the same temperature • ENERGY(E) – capacity to do work or to transfer heat
HOT STUFF? • Can something transfer cold?
SO IN FACT: • In theory stirring soup long enough and fast enough could make it boil
Heat always flows from a hotter to a colder object until they have the same temperature
BUT I KNOW IT’S COLD!! Heat from our body is transferred, making something feel cold because we lose heat from the area touching the cold object
NATURE OF ENERGY 2 types of energy Kinetic energy Potential energy Energy due toposition of object relative to others(Stored energy) Energy due to motion of object
KINETIC ENERGY Note: Ek increases as velocity increases and Ek increases as mass increases. Atoms and molecules have mass and are in motion, thus they have kinetic energy!
energy an object possesses because of its temperature. Thermal energy Associated with kinetic energy of atoms and molecules. The higher the temperature, the faster theatoms and moleculesmove the more kinetic energy molecules and atoms have the greater the thermal energy of the object. The total thermal energy of the object is the sum of the individual energies of the atoms or molecules.
MISSING: KINETIC ENERGY, PLEASE HELP • What is it to have no kinetic energy? • Absolute zero! • Can we detect that? • No! • Why?! • Because in order to detect it we would have to interact with it which would heat it
POTENTIAL ENERGY We know Ep = mgh Forces other than gravity that lead to potential energy = ELECTROSTATIC forces Attractions and repulsions due to oppositely charged objects (e.g. positive and negative ions)
Recall: Eel = electrostatic energy k = Coulomb constant Q = charge d = distance between charges Describes the electrostatic energy between 2 charges. UNITS OF ENERGY SI unit = J (Joule) 1 J = 1 kg.m2.s-2 (Others 1 cal (calorie) = 4.184 J) Ek=0.5mv2 =(kg)(m.s-1)2 (The amount of heat energy to raise temp of 1g H2O by 1oC)
A BRAINTEASER • If everything has kinetic energy • And chemical potential energy • Why is everything not moving around constantly? • Why are solids not felt to vibrate?
SYSTEM AND SURROUNDINGS Everything else Portion singled out for study System Surroundings System+surroundings=universe
Open system – can exchange both energy and matter with the surroundings Closed system – exchanges energy but NOT matter with the surroundings Isolated system – neither energy nor matter can be exchanged with the surroundings
A QUOTE NOT TO LIVE BY “Thermodynamics is a funny subject. The first time you go through it, you don't understand it at all. The second time you go through it, you think you understand it, except for one or two small points. The third time you go through it, you know you don't understand it, but by that time you are so used to it, it doesn't bother you anymore.” http://www.eoht.info/page/Thermodynamics+humor
FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS Energy is neither created nor destroyed, it is merely converted from one form into another. Energy is transferred between the system and the surroundings in the form of work and heat. The total energy of the universe remains constant.
INTERNAL ENERGY (U) Also given as E Internal energy (of the system) = sum of all Ek and Ep of all components of the system Symbol for change = Change in internal energy of the system U U = UFinal - Uinitial Number & Unit Magnitude Sign Direction(in which energy is transferred)
U = UFinal - Uinitial Usyst > 0 Uf > Ui GAINED energy from surroundings Usyst < 0 Uf < Ui LOST energy to surroundings
RELATING U TO WORK AND HEAT General ways to change ENERGY of a closed system: WORK Done by/on system HEAT lost/gained by system When a system undergoes a chemical/physical change Relationship: U = q + w We can’t measure U, but we can determine U.
SIGN CONVENTION q<0 Heat transferredFROMsystem q>0 Heat transferredTOsystem SYSTEM w<0 Work doneBYsystem w>0 Work doneONsystem The sign of U will depend on the sign and magnitude of q and w since U = q + w.
Example: System Calculate the change in internal energy for a process in which the system absorbs 120 J of heat from the surroundings and does 64 J of work on the surroundings. 120 J heat 64 J work U = q + w
SOME DEFINITIONS Extensive property – dependent on the amount of matter in the system. E.g. mass, volume etc Intensive Property – NOT dependent on the amount of matter in the system. E.g. density, temperature etc
A B C State function – a function that depends on the state or conditions of the system and NOT on the details of how it came to be in that state.
DEFINITIONS APPLIED TO INTERNAL ENERGY Recall: Total internal energy of a system= sum of all Ek and Ep of all components of the system Thus total internal energy of a system total quantity of matter in system U is an extensive property
e.g. if a gas sample undergoes: ApressureXheatB, or AheatYpressureB U is the same in both cases. Internal energy depends on the state or conditions of the system (e.g. pressure, temperature, location) Does not depend on how it came to be in that state. state function U only depends on Ui and Uf and not how the change occurred. NOTE: Heat and work are not state functions!
ENTHALPY (H) We cannot measure enthalpy (H), we can only measure change in enthalpy (H). Change in enthalpy (H) is the heat gained or lost by the system when a process occurs under constant pressure. E.g. atm pressure H = Hfinal - Hinitial = qp H is a state function and an extensive property
NOTE: At constant pressure, most of the energy lost / gained is in the form of heat. Very little workis done for the expansion / contraction against the atmospheric force, especially if the reaction does not involve gases.
qp>0 qp<0 SYSTEM H>0 H<0 Exothermic process – systemevolves heat Endothermicprocess - system absorbs heat
FINDING THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN U AND H –CONSIDER PV WORK We know that: U = q + w Assume we do PV work only (e.g. expanding gases in cylinder of a car does PV work on the piston)
Gas expands and moves piston distance d W = Fd But F = PA W = PAd W = PV Sign: system is doing work on the piston W = -PV
U = q + w and w = -PV U = q - PV At constant volume, V = 0 U = qv At constant pressure: U = qp - PV But H = qp U = H - PV The volume change in many reactions is very small, thus PV is very small and hence the difference between U and H is small.
ENTHALPIES OF REACTION enthalpy change that accompanies a reaction (heat of reaction) Hrxn = H(products) – H(reactants) final initial Thermochemical equation: 2H2(g) + O2(g) 2H2O(g) H = -483.6 kJ exothermic Balanced equation H associated with the reaction Coefficients in balanced equation = no. of moles of reactant/product producing associated H (extensive)
2H2(g) + O2(g) 2H2O(g) H = -483.6 kJ Note: Since enthalpy is an extensive property, H depends on the amount of reactant consumed. 4H2(g) + 2O2(g) 4H2O(g) H = Also, H for a reaction is equal in magnitude, but opposite in sign to H for the reverse reaction. 2H2O(g) 2H2(g) + O2(g) H =
Example: Calculate the heat needed to convert 25 ml water to steam at atmospheric pressure if the enthalpy change is 44 kJ/mol. (Assume the density of water is 1.0 kg/l)
Example: Hydrogen peroxide can decompose to water and oxygen by the reaction: 2H2O2 (l) 2H2O (l) + O2 (g) H = -196 kJ Calculate the heat produced when 2.50 g H2O2 decomposes at constant pressure.
Example – burning money: • Ethanol burns in air to give water vapour and carbon dioxide • Calculate the enthalpy of reaction given enthalpy of formations of: ethanol (l) = -277.7 kJ/mol • water (l) = -285.8 kJ/mol carbon dioxide (g)= -393.5 kJ/mol • 2. Calculate the minimum amount of water needed to prevent the paper from burning after be soaked in 1g of ethanol First: find the balanced chemical equation Enthalpy of reaction:
Example – burning money: H2O(l) H2O(g) H = 44 kJ/mol Recall: Ethanol burns in air to give water vapour and carbon dioxide 2. Calculate the minimum amount of water needed to prevent the paper from burning after be soaked in 1.00g of ethanol Find the heat released by burning 1.00 g of ethanol
