Problems

Postby Jessica Chen 2C » Sat Mar 14, 2020 12:15 pm

What type of problems could be asked regarding the different types of thermodynamic systems? Like, would there be a question focused solely on this concept, or are they just mentioned as part of a different type of problem?

It's likely that the type of system isn't going to be the focal point of a thermodynamics problem. The problem will most likely involve reversible/irreversible expansion and changes in entropy, enthalpy, and Gibbs free energy.

Thanks for the response! Could someone summarize what knowing the type of system would tell you for each system? Like if it’s an isolated system, do I know that a certain value would be 0 or something?

The change in entropy is greater than or equal to 0 in an isolated system.
