Understanding the Universe: An Introduction to Physics and Astrophysics

This article is meant for undergraduate nonscience majors, enjoyable a normal schooling requirement or looking an non-compulsory in usual technology. it's a textual content on physics, yet with an emphasis on themes and functions in astronomy; the point of view is hence various from so much undergraduate astronomy classes: instead of discussing what one is aware concerning the heavens (and together with, the place wanted, a short dialogue of the mandatory physics), this article develops the rules of physics (as one wishes them to appreciate the habit of subject on the earth) and makes use of those to light up what we see within the heavens.

11) returning an error of approximately 6%. 10) 39 13. 1 Spontaneity revisited When a volatile liquid (taken as the thermodynamic system) (Frames 1, 7) (say ether or alcohol) is applied to the skin (taken to be the surroundings) it rapidly and spontaneously evaporates (evidenced by a cooling sensation). e. the system) which renders vap H > 0 for the process since heat is added to the system. 10), Frame 10), the enthalpy change, vap H o , which takes account of the need for the ether to evaporate and also to expand (P V ) against the external atmospheric pressure, also involves an (internal) energy, U , component and in this case it appears that, for this particular spontaneous process, this energy is increasing.

6) dV = −n RT ∫ = −n RT ln V V Vi Vi Vi Vi The varying P is substituted by nRT/V and the integration then performed over the changing volume. wrev is the work done by the gas in expanding reversibly from (Vi, Pi ) to (Vf , Pf ). e. the abscissa) (see Frame 2). wrev is larger than the work done, wirr , during the irreversible process of expansion and it also represents the maximum work obtainable from any expansion process which takes the gas from the state (Vi , Pi ) to the state (Vf , Pf ). 8) we write moduli to describe the magnitude of the work done in the two cases so avoiding the sign convention issues here.

These factors will be supplementary to and in addition to enthalpy/energy factors. 7), when the spontaneity of a reaction is reversed; temperature is observed to play a part. 8) (for which H > 0) occurs because temperature increase enhances the importance of this second factor associated with increased disorder – entropy – and leads to an increase in the number of molecules of gas produced. 2 Entropy, S and Gibbs (free) energy, G, functions Suppose now that we decide to combine a second factor, in addition to the enthalpy change, H o in the search for an overall parameter (G) the change in which ( G o ) will indicate to us whether a given reaction or process is likely to take place spontaneously.
