Entropy change is a phenomenon that quantifies how disorder or randomness has changed in a thermodynamic system. We can write the condition of equilibrium for heat energy absorbed and transferred by the two blocks, and by writing it in terms of specific heat and temperature; we can find the value of equilibrium temperature of the two-block system. Then, by using the formula for change in entropy, we can find the change in entropy of the aluminum, water, and aluminum-water system.
The heat transferred by the body, …(i)
The entropy change of the gas, …(ii)
At equilibrium, the total heat of the system is zero. So,
Using equation (i) and the given values, we can get that
Let the equilibrium temperature be Then, the above equation becomes
Hence, the value of the equilibrium temperature is 330K
Substituting the given values in equation (ii), we get the entropy change of aluminum as given:
Hence, the value of the entropy change is
Substituting the given values in equation (ii), we get the entropy change of water as given:
Hence, the value of the entropy change is 24.9 J/K
Change in entropy of the system = Change in entropy of water + Change in entropy of aluminum.
So, the total entropy change of the aluminum-water system is given as follows:
Hence, the value of the entropy change of the system is 2.8J/K
A heat pump is used to heat a building. The external temperature is less than the internal temperature. The pump’s coefficient of performance is 3.8, and the heat pump delivers 7.54 MJ as heat to the building each hour. If the heat pump is a Carnot engine working in reverse, at what rate must work be done to run it?
An ideal monatomic gas at initial temperature (in Kelvins) expands from initial volume to volume by each of the five processes indicated in the T-V diagram of Fig. 20-20.
