Internal Energy/Open System

Postby Lauryn Jordan 1F » Fri Jan 19, 2018 1:09 am

What are the three ways you can increase the internal energy of an open system?

For an open system you can increase the temperature of the system thus adding more energy to the overall system.

You can also change it by adding or removing different amounts of the substances in an open system.

You can increase the temperature of an open system and it will increase its internal energy, but I am not sure how effective it is to, say, heat up an open beaker where the heat can just leave

You could also decrease the volume of the system or compress the gas under adiabatic conditions to increase internal energy.
