# Chemical Thermodynamics Assignments/DPPs

The chapter Chemical Thermodynamics in Class 11 chemistry delves into the fascinating world of energy transformations during chemical reactions. This crucial chapter unveils the fundamental laws governing heat, work, and their interplay in chemical processes, equipping you for success in the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE), National Entrance cum Eligibility Test (NEET) and beyond.

## Overview : Chemical Thermodynamics for Class 11 and JEE

Embracing the Fundamentals:

• Thermodynamics: A branch of physical chemistry concerned with the relationship between heat, work, and temperature in a system and its surroundings.
• System: The part of the universe under investigation in a thermodynamic process.
• Surroundings: Everything outside the system that interacts with it through exchange of energy and matter.
• Types of systems:
• Closed system: Exchanges energy but not matter with the surroundings.
• Open system: Exchanges both energy and matter with the surroundings.
• Isolated system: Does not exchange energy or matter with the surroundings.

Understanding the Laws of Thermodynamics:

• Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics: If two systems are each in thermal equilibrium with a third system, then they are in thermal equilibrium with each other.
• First Law of Thermodynamics: The total energy of the universe is constant, and energy can be transformed from one form to another, but cannot be created or destroyed. Mathematically, ΔE = Q + W, where:
• ΔE is the change in internal energy of the system (heat absorbed – work done by the system).
• Q is the heat transferred between the system and the surroundings (positive for heat absorbed by the system).
• W is the work done by the system on the surroundings (positive for work done by the system).
• Second Law of Thermodynamics: The entropy of the universe, a measure of disorder, always increases in spontaneous processes.
• Third Law of Thermodynamics: The entropy of a system approaches a constant value as the temperature approaches absolute zero (0 K).

Essential Formulas (for reference):

• Enthalpy (H): A thermodynamic property, representing the total thermal energy of a system at constant pressure. ΔH = ΔE + Δ(pV), where:
• ΔH is the change in enthalpy.
• p is the pressure.
• V is the volume.
• Entropy (S): A measure of the disorder or randomness of a system. ΔS = Q/T, where:
• ΔS is the change in entropy.
• T is the absolute temperature (K).

Question Types in JEE:

• Applying the First Law of Thermodynamics: Calculating the change in internal energy, heat flow, or work done in a process using the equation ΔE = Q + W.
• Interpreting signs in thermodynamic equations: Understanding the positive and negative signs associated with heat flow, work done, and changes in internal energy.
• Differentiating between enthalpy and internal energy: Explaining the influence of pressure on enthalpy changes.
• Relating enthalpy changes to reaction types: Identifying exothermic (heat released) and endothermic (heat absorbed) reactions based on the sign of ΔH.
• Solving calorimetry problems: Utilizing specific heat capacities and heat transfer calculations to determine temperature changes or heat flow during a process.
• Understanding the concept of entropy: Explaining the role of entropy in predicting the spontaneity of a reaction.
• Connecting to real-world applications: Recognizing how the principles of chemical thermodynamics find application in various fields like combustion engines, refrigeration, and chemical engineering.
