is the ability to do work (move mass over a distance) or transfer heat
Internal energy (E)
the sum of the kinetic and potential energy for each particle in the system
by moving particles
How can energy be transferred?
The collision of fast moving molecules with slower molecules will cause what?
the slow molecules to speed up while the fast molecules to slow
Precisely where an object is located
When does potential energy increase?
when objects that attract move apart or when objects that repel move toward each other
What can be converted to kinetic energy?
Define the First Law of Thermodynamics
Energy cannot be created or destroyed, but can be transformed from one form of energy to another
In terms of energy define temperature
of an object is proportional to the average kinetic energy of its particles—the higher the average kinetic energy, the higher the temperature
is energy (also called thermal energy) transferred between objects caused by differences in their temperatures until they reach thermal equilibrium
What is temperature propotional to?
is proportional to the average kinetic energy of all particle units: °C, °F, K
Give the units for energy
SI unit is the Joule, J
? E = Eproduct - Ereactant = 0
1st Law of Thermodynamics: For an isolated system the internal energy (E) is constant:
What is E
a state function
Define state function
A property whose value depends only on the present state of the system, not on the method or mechanism used to arrive at that state
heat transfer during a reaction
Give an example of a state function
Heat Transfer (q)
the transfer of energy from regions of high temperature to regions of lower temperature
The region of interest when some change in energy, reaction, etc. is being studied, ex. a flask of gas, a beaker of acid.
all parts of the universe other than the system being considered.
can gain or lose mass and energy across their boundries
can absorb or release energy, but not mass across the boundry
A chemical reaction that absorbs heat
A chemical reaction that releases energy
Define heat capacity
the (extensive) ability of an object with constant mass to absorb heat.
Define Specific Heat
The intensive ability of a substance to store heat.
What do substances with high specific heat resist?
How long does heat transfer contiue?
until thermal equilibrium is reached, thus the final temperature is the same for all materials
An attractive force that holds together the atoms, ions, or groups of atoms in a molecule or compound.
In sense of bonds define exothermic
reactions form stronger bonds in the products than in the reactants and release energy
In sense of bonds define endothermic
reactions break stronger bonds than they form and require energy
How does work relate to reactions?
most often due to the expansion or contraction of a system due to changes in moles of gas as a result of a chemical reaction.
Psystem = -Patm
Gases push against the atmospheric pressure , so
Heat of reaction
is the quantity of heat released or absorbed during a chemical reaction.
measures how the heat absorbed or released in a chemical or physical change.
Internal Energy is Measured with a Bomb Calorimeter
Used for reactions in which there is change in the number of moles of gas present
Enthalpy of Combustion
the enthalpy change that occurs during the complete combustion of 1 mole of a substance
Enthalpy change is
is the heat transferred at constant pressure
pressure to remain constant
What does open system allow?
Relate the energy of a reaction to the quantities involved
the overall enthalpy change in a reaction is equal to the sum of enthalpy changes for the individual steps in the process.
Rules for Adding Thermochemical Reactions
When an equation is reversed—written in the opposite direction—the sign of H must also be reversed.
Strategy for Adding Reactions Together
Choose the most complex compound in the equation (1)
Enthalpy of formation, ?H°f
is the enthalpy change for the formation of 1 mole of a substance in its standard state from elements in their standard states
Another term for the heat of reaction
H2O + heat energy
H+ (aq) + OH- (aq) -->
? T :: ? collisions :: ? rate of reaction
a flow of energy due to a temperature difference
Energy in a substance
Heat in a substance =
the amount of heat necessary to raise the temperature of 1 gram of a substance by 1 °C
Specific Heat Equation
Q = cm?T
Change in temperature K
Joules (or calories)
The measurement of the energy food gives us
Amount of energy within a system
?H for Exothermic Reactions
The enthalpy of the products is less than that of the reactants so the ?H value will be negative
?H for Endothermic Reactions
The enthalpy of the products is greater than that of the reactants so the ?H value will be positive
The energy that is available to do work
Occurs naturally and favors the formation at the stated conditions. They produce large amounts of products and release free energy.
Does not favor the formation of products at the stated conditions and produce little, if any, product
a change in randomness or complexity
Law of Disorder
States that the natural tendency is for systems to move in the direction of increasing disorder or randomness
Reactions in which entropy increases..
As reactants form products to be favored
Energy Diagram's hill bisector line
a substance that increase reaction rate w/o being permanently used up or changed. it lowers the activation energy needed for the reaction so more molecules have the necessary energy for a reaction
A reversible chemical reaction when the rate of its forward reaction equals the rate of its reverse reaction and the concentration of its products and reactants remain unchanged
A chemical reaction in which the products can react to re-form the reactants
Le Chatelier's Principle
application of stress (change in temp, pressure, or concentration) on a system at equilibrium causes it to minimize the stress and attain new equilibrium position
Reactions that Go to Completion
This happens when ions are almost completely removed from solution which depends on degree of solubility and degree of ionization
Formation of a Gas
This formation has unstable substances that are formed as products of ionic reactions decompose spontaneously
Formation of a Precipitate
This formation has a reaction that goes to completion because an essentially insoluble product is formed
Formation of a Slightly Ionized Product
In this formation, if water is present, assume that it will go through completion
speed at which chemical reactions occur
study of how fast chemical reactions occur
Nature of reactants, surface area, temperature, concentration, presence of catalysts
Involve reactants in two different phases
a catalyst that is in the same phase as all the reactants and products
a catalyst that is in a different phase
In which one or more electrons are transferred are called
addition of oxygen or loss of electrons
Loss of oxygen, gain of electrons
Equilibrium "lies to the right"
because products predominate and products are written on the right-hand side of a chemical equation
