U even for a diathermal system in which both heat and work are exchanged. The derivation follows. p d *- O. The first law states that in a cyclic transformation, the work produced in the surroundings (-dw) is equal to the heat withdrawn from the surroundings (+dq). p (dq + Because any cyclical function that is equal to zero must also be a state function, this equation may be defined as a state variable U, the energy of the system. U, even if no convenient adiabatic path exists. By measuring the heat, q, and the work, w, of a path, the change in the state variable of internal energy may be found.

1. Specialized Boundaries as Tools A knowledge of the boundary conditions is important since any change that occurs in a system must do so through a boundary. Several forms of boundaries may be defined that help in simplifying heat-work relationships because they limit the available path functions. Such limiting conditions are useful in scientific thinking, since they frequently result in reasonable and practical approximations. Adiabatic walls are boundaries across which no heat transfer may occur.

3-1, initially the entropy of the system was 0, because W = 1. Such a result is consistent with the third law of thermodynamics, which states that when all molecules in a system are in their lowest energy states, the entropy of the system is zero. 3-20) is that as a result ofthe addition of the energy, there are more choices available to describe the arrangement of the system, and in fact less is now known about the system than before. 3-23) 50 4. 4. 4-1) This makes some sense ifit is considered that at zero degrees it is possible to imagine that a crystal would be perfectly arranged so that perfect order reigned everywhere, and hence the location of every atom could be known.
