## What is the change in the internal energy of the system that does 400 joules?

When a system uses up 400 J (or does 400 J of work), this means the internal energy decreases by 400 J. When it absorbs 700 J of heat, it means 700 J is added to total internal energy present. Thus, we have a total change of -400 + 700 = 300 J in the internal energy of the system.

## What is the change of internal energy?

The change in the internal energy of a system is the sum of the heat transferred and the work done. When the volume of a system is constant, changes in its internal energy can be calculated by substituting the ideal gas law into the equation for ΔU.

## What is the change in internal energy of the gas?

Change in internal energy: If the temperature of an ideal gas changes, the change in internal energy of the gas is proportional to the change in temperature. If there is no change in temperature, there is no change in internal energy (as long as the number of moles of gas remains constant).

## What can you say about the internal energy of a system if it absorbs heat and does work?

The internal energy is equal to the heat of the system. The surrounding heat increases, so the heat of the system decreases because heat is not created nor destroyed. Therefore, heat is taken away from the system making it exothermic and negative.

## What is the relationship between work and heat?

Work is the transfer of energy by any process other than heat. Heat and work are related: work can be completely converted into heat, but the reverse is not true: heat cannot be completely converted to work.

## What is the second law of thermodynamics formula?

The Second Law of Thermodynamics relates the heat associated with a process to the entropy change for that process. Therefore as a redox reaction proceeds there is a heat change related to the extent of the reaction, dq/dξ = T(dS/dξ).

## What is the second law of thermodynamics state?

Energy is the ability to bring about change or to do work. The Second Law of Thermodynamics states that “in all energy exchanges, if no energy enters or leaves the system, the potential energy of the state will always be less than that of the initial state.” This is also commonly referred to as entropy.

## How does the second law of thermodynamics apply to living things?

How do the laws of thermodynamics apply to living organisms? The First Law says that energy cannot be created or destroyed. The Second Law says that in any energy conversion, some energy is wasted as heat; moreover, the entropy of any closed system always increases.
