And it’s going faster and faster, but we don’t know where. —Jacques Cousteau Because you’re able to do it and because you have the right to do it doesn’t mean it’s right to do it. —Laura Schlessinger A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world. —Manly Hall The concern for man and his destiny must always be the chief interest of all technical effort. Never forget it among your diagrams and equations. —Albert Einstein Cowardice asks the question, ‘Is it safe?’ Expediency asks the question, ‘Is it politic?’ Vanity asks the question, ‘Is it popular?’ But, conscience asks the question, ‘Is it right?’ And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because one’s conscience tells one that it is right. —Martin Luther King, Jr To educate a man in mind and not in morals is to educate a menace to society. —Theodore Roosevelt Politics which revolves around benefit is savagery. —Said Nursi The true test of civilization is, not the census, nor the size of the cities, nor the crops, but the kind of man that the country turns out. —Ralph W. Emerson The measure of a man’s character is what he would do if he knew he never would be found out. —Thomas B. Macaulay About the Authors Yunus A.

and fascinating subject that deals with energy, and thermodynamics has long been an essential part of engineering curricula all over the world. It has a broad application area ranging from microscopic organisms to common household appliances, transportation vehicles, power generation systems, and even philosophy. This introductory book contains sufficient material for two sequential courses in thermodynamics. Students are assumed to have an adequate background in calculus and physics. OBJECTIVES This book is intended for use as a textbook by undergraduate engineering students in their sophomore or junior year, and as a reference book for practicing engineers. The objectives of this text are • To cover the basic principles of thermodynamics. • To present a wealth of realworld engineering examples to give students a feel for how thermodynamics is applied in engineering practice. • To develop an intuitive understanding of thermodynamics by emphasizing the physics and physical arguments that underpin the theory. It is our hope that this book, through its careful explanations of concepts and its use of numerous practical examples and figures, helps students develop the necessary skills to bridge the gap between knowledge and the confidence to properly apply knowledge. PHILOSOPHY AND GOAL The philosophy that contributed to the overwhelming popularity of the prior editions of this book has remained unchanged in this edition. Namely, our goal has been to offer an engineering textbook that • Communicates directly to the minds of tomorrow’s engineers in a simple yet precise manner. • Leads students toward a clear understanding and firm grasp of the basic principles of thermodynamics. • Encourages creative thinking and development of a deeper understanding and intuitive feel for thermodynamics. • Is read by students with interest and enthusiasm rather than being used as an aid to solve problems. Special effort has been made to appeal to students’ natural curiosity and to help them explore the various facets of the exciting subject area of thermodynamics. The enthusiastic responses we have received from users of prior editions—from small colleges to large universities all over the world—and the continued translations into new languages indicate that our objectives xviii THERMODYNAMICS have largely been achieved. It is our philosophy that the best way to learn is by practice. Therefore, special effort is made throughout the book to reinforce material that was presented earlier. Yesterday’s engineer spent a major portion of his or her time substituting values into the formulas and obtaining numerical results. However, formula manipulations and number crunching are now being left mainly to computers. Tomorrow’s engineer will need a clear understanding and a firm grasp of the basic principles so that he or she can understand even the most complex problems, formulate them, and interpret the results. A conscious effort is made to emphasize these basic principles while also providing students with a perspective of how computational tools are used in engineering practice. The traditional classical, or macroscopic, approach is used throughout the text, with microscopic arguments serving in a supporting role as appropriate. This approach is more in line with students’ intuition and makes learning the subject matter much easier. NEW IN THIS EDITION The primary change in this eighth edition of the text is the effective use of full color to enhance the learning experience of students and to make it more enjoyable. Another significant change is the addition of a new web chapter on Renewable Energy available via the Online Learning Center. The third important change is the update of the R134a tables to make property values consistent with those from the latest version of EES. All the solved examples and endofchapter problems dealing with R134a are modified to reflect this change. This edition includes numerous new problems with a variety of applications. Problems, whose solutions require parametric investigations and thus the use of a computer, are identified by a computerEES icon, as before. Some existing problems from previous editions have been removed, and other updates and changes for clarity and readability have been made throughout the text. The eighth edition also includes McGrawHill’s Connect® Engineering. This online homework management tool allows assignment of algorithmic problems for homework, quizzes and tests. It connects students with the tools and resources they’ll need to achieve success. To learn more, visit www.mcgrawhillconnect.com.

LEARNING TOOLS EARLY INTRODUCTION OF THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS The first law of thermodynamics is introduced early in Chapter 2, “Energy, Energy Transfer, and General Energy Analysis.” This introductory chapter xix PREFACE sets the framework of establishing a general understanding of various forms of energy, mechanisms of energy transfer, the concept of energy balance, thermoeconomics, energy conversion, and conversion efficiency using familiar settings that involve mostly electrical and mechanical forms of energy. It also exposes students to some exciting realworld applications of thermodynamics early in the course, and helps them establish a sense of the monetary value of energy. There is special emphasis on the utilization of renewable energy such as wind power and hydraulic energy, and the efficient use of existing resources. EMPHASIS ON PHYSICS A distinctive feature of this book is its emphasis on the physical aspects of the subject matter in addition to mathematical representations and manipulations. The authors believe that the emphasis in undergraduate education should remain on developing a sense of underlying physical mechanisms and a mastery of solving practical problems that an engineer is likely to face in the real world. Developing an intuitive understanding should also make the course a more motivating and worthwhile experience for students. EFFECTIVE USE OF ASSOCIATION An observant mind should have no difficulty understanding engineering sciences. After all, the principles of engineering sciences are based on our everyday experiences and experimental observations. Therefore, a physical, intuitive approach is used throughout this text. Frequently, parallels are drawn between the subject matter and students’ everyday experiences so that they can relate the subject matter to what they already know. The process of cooking, for example, serves as an excellent vehicle to demonstrate the basic principles of thermodynamics. SELFINSTRUCTING The material in the text is introduced at a level that an average student can follow comfortably. It speaks to students, not over students. In fact, it is selfinstructive. The order of coverage is from simple to general. That is, it starts with the simplest case and adds complexities gradually. In this way, the basic principles are repeatedly applied to different systems, and students master how to apply the principles instead of how to simplify a general formula. Noting that the principles of sciences are based on experimental observations, all the derivations in this text are based on physical arguments, and thus they are easy to follow and understand. EXTENSIVE USE OF ARTWORK Figures are important learning tools that help students “get the picture,” and the text makes very effective use of graphics. This edition of Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach, Eighth Edition features an enhanced art program done in four colors to provide more realism and pedagogical understanding. Further, a large number of figures have been upgraded to become threedimensional and thus more reallife. Figures attract attention and stimulate curiosity and interest. Most of the figures in this text are intended to serve as a means of emphasizing some key concepts that would otherwise go unnoticed; some serve as page summaries. xx THERMODYNAMICS LEARNING OBJECTIVES AND SUMMARIES Each chapter begins with an overview of the material to be covered and chapterspecific learning objectives. A summary is included at the end of each chapter, providing a quick review of basic concepts and important relations, and pointing out the relevance of the material. NUMEROUS WORKEDOUT EXAMPLES WITH A SYSTEMATIC SOLUTIONS PROCEDURE Each chapter contains several workedout examples that clarify the material and illustrate the use of the basic principles. An intuitive and systematic approach is used in the solution of the example problems, while maintaining an informal conversational style. The problem is first stated, and the objectives are identified. The assumptions are then stated, together with their justifications. The properties needed to solve the problem are listed separately if appropriate. Numerical values are used together with their units to emphasize that numbers without units are meaningless, and that unit manipulations are as important as manipulating the numerical values with a calculator. The significance of the findings is discussed following the solutions. This approach is also used consistently in the solutions presented in the instructor’s solutions manual. A WEALTH OF REALWORLD ENDOFCHAPTER PROBLEMS The endofchapter problems are grouped under specific topics to make problem selection easier for both instructors and students. Within each group of problems are Concept Questions, indicated by “C,” to check the students’ level of understanding of basic concepts. The problems under Review Problems are more comprehensive in nature and are not directly tied to any specific section of a chapter—in some cases they require review of material learned in previous chapters. Problems designated as Design and Essay are intended to encourage students to make engineering judgments, to conduct independent exploration of topics of interest, and to communicate their findings in a professional manner. Problems designated by an “E” are in English units, are solved using EES, and SI users can ignore them. Problems with the and complete solutions together with parametric studies are included on the are comprehensive in nature and textbook’s website. Problems with the are intended to be solved with a computer, possibly using the EES software. Several economics and safetyrelated problems are incorporated throughout to promote cost and safety awareness among engineering students. Answers to selected problems are listed immediately following the problem for convenience to students. In addition, to prepare students for the Fundamentals of Engineering Exam (that is becoming more important for the outcomebased ABET 2000 criteria) and to facilitate multiplechoice tests, over 200 multiplechoice problems are included in the endofchapter problem sets. They are placed under the title Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) Exam Problems for easy recognition. These problems are intended to check the understanding of fundamentals and to help readers avoid common pitfalls. RELAXED SIGN CONVENTION The use of a formal sign convention for heat and work is abandoned as it often becomes counterproductive. A physically meaningful and engaging approach is adopted for interactions instead of a mechanical approach. xxi PREFACE Subscripts “in” and “out,” rather than the plus and minus signs, are used to indicate the directions of interactions. PHYSICALLY MEANINGFUL FORMULAS The physically meaningful forms of the balance equations rather than formulas are used to foster deeper understanding and to avoid a cookbook approach. The mass, energy, entropy, and exergy balances for any system undergoing any process are expressed as min 2 mout 5 Dmsystem Mass balance: Energy balance: Ein 2 Eout 5 Net energy transfer by heat, work, and mass Entropy balance: Sin 2 Sout 1 Net entropy transfer by heat and mass Exergy balance: Xin 2 Xout Net exergy transfer by heat, work, and mass 2 Sgen Change in internal, kinetic, potential, etc., energies 5 Entropy generation Xdestroyed Exergy destruction DEsystem DSsystem Change in entropy 5 DXsystem Change in exergy These relations reinforce the fundamental principles that during an actual process mass and energy are conserved, entropy is generated, and exergy is destroyed. Students are encouraged to use these forms of balances in early chapters after they specify the system, and to simplify them for the particular problem. A more relaxed approach is used in later chapters as students gain mastery. A CHOICE OF SI ALONE OR SI/ENGLISH UNITS In recognition of the fact that English units are still widely used in some industries, both SI and English units are used in this text, with an emphasis on SI. The material in this text can be covered using combined SI/English units or SI units alone, depending on the preference of the instructor. The property tables and charts in the appendices are presented in both units, except the ones that involve dimensionless quantities. Problems, tables, and charts in English units are designated by “E” after the number for easy recognition, and they can be ignored by SI users. TOPICS OF SPECIAL INTEREST Most chapters contain a section called “Topic of Special Interest” where interesting aspects of thermodynamics are discussed. Examples include Thermodynamic Aspects of Biological Systems in Chapter 4, Household Refrigerators in Chapter 6, SecondLaw Aspects of Daily Life in Chapter 8, and Saving Fuel and Money by Driving Sensibly in Chapter 9. The topics selected for these sections provide intriguing extensions to thermodynamics, but they can be ignored if desired without a loss in continuity. xxii THERMODYNAMICS GLOSSARY OF THERMODYNAMIC TERMS Throughout the chapters, when an important key term or concept is introduced and defined, it appears in boldface type. Fundamental thermodynamic terms and concepts also appear in a glossary located on our accompanying website (www.mhhe.com/cengel). This unique glossary helps to reinforce key terminology and is an excellent learning and review tool for students as they move forward in their study of thermodynamics. In addition, students can test their knowledge of these fundamental terms by using the flash cards and other interactive resources. CONVERSION FACTORS Frequently used conversion factors and physical constants are listed on the inner cover pages of the text for easy reference. SUPPLEMENTS The following supplements are available to users of the book. ENGINEERING EQUATION SOLVER (EES) Developed by Sanford Klein and William Beckman from the University of Wisconsin—Madison, this software combines equationsolving capability and engineering property data. EES can do optimization, parametric analysis, and linear and nonlinear regression, and provides publicationquality plotting capabilities. Thermodynamics and transport properties for air, water, and many other fluids are built in, and EES allows the user to enter property data or functional relationships. EES is a powerful equation solver with builtin functions and property tables for thermodynamic and transport properties as well as automatic unit checking capability. It requires less time than a calculator for data entry and allows more time for thinking critically about modeling and solving engineering problems. Look for the EES icons in the homework problems sections of the text. The Limited Academic Version of EES is available for departmental license upon adoption of the Eighth Edition of Thermodynamics: An Engineering Approach (meaning that the text is required for students in the course). You may load this software onto your institution’s computer system, for use by students and faculty related to the course, as long as the arrangement between McGrawHill Education and FChart is in effect. There are minimum order requirements stipulated by FChart to qualify.

CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION AND BASIC CONCEPTS E very science has a unique vocabulary associated with it, and thermodynamics is no exception. Precise definition of basic concepts forms a sound foundation for the development of a science and prevents possible misunderstandings. We start this chapter with an overview of thermodynamics and the unit systems, and continue with a discussion of some basic concepts such as system, state, state postulate, equilibrium, and process. We discuss intensive and extensive properties of a system and define density, specific gravity, and specific weight. We also discuss temperature and temperature scales with particular emphasis on the International Temperature Scale of 1990. We then present pressure, which is the normal force exerted by a fluid per unit area and discuss absolute and gage pressures, the variation of pressure with depth, and pressure measurement devices, such as manometers and barometers. Careful study of these concepts is essential for a good understanding of the topics in the following chapters. Finally, we present an intuitive systematic problemsolving technique that can be used as a model in solving engineering problems. OBJECTIVES The objectives of Chapter 1 are to: ■ Identify the unique vocabulary associated with thermodynamics through the precise definition of basic concepts to form a sound foundation for the development of the principles of thermodynamics. ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Review the metric SI and the English unit systems that will be used throughout the text. Explain the basic concepts of thermodynamics such as system, state, state postulate, equilibrium, process, and cycle.

Although everybody has a feeling of what energy is, it is difficult to give a precise definition for it. Energy can be viewed as the ability to cause changes. The name thermodynamics stems from the Greek words therme (heat) and dynamis (power), which is most descriptive of the early efforts to convert heat into power. Today the same name is broadly interpreted to include all aspects of energy and energy transformations including power generation, refrigeration, and relationships among the properties of matter. One of the most fundamental laws of nature is the conservation of energy principle. It simply states that during an interaction, energy can change from one form to another but the total amount of energy remains constant. That is, energy cannot be created or destroyed. A rock falling off a cliff, for example, picks up speed as a result of its potential energy being converted to kinetic energy (Fig. 1–1). The conservation of energy principle also forms the backbone of the diet industry: A person who has a greater energy input (food) than energy output (exercise) will gain weight (store energy in the form of fat), and a person who has a smaller energy input than output will lose weight (Fig. 1–2). The change in the energy content of a body or any other system is equal to the difference between the energy input and the energy output, and the energy balance is expressed as Ein 2 Eout 5 DE. The first law of thermodynamics is simply an expression of the conservation of energy principle, and it asserts that energy is a thermodynamic property. The second law of thermodynamics asserts that energy has quality as well as quantity, and actual processes occur in the direction of decreasing quality of energy. For example, a cup of hot coffee left on a table eventually cools, but a cup of cool coffee in the same room never gets hot by itself (Fig. 1–3). The hightemperature energy of the coffee is degraded (transformed into a less useful form at a lower temperature) once it is transferred to the surrounding air. Although the principles of thermodynamics have been in existence since the creation of the universe, thermodynamics did not emerge as a science until the construction of the first successful atmospheric steam engines in England by Thomas Savery in 1697 and Thomas Newcomen in 1712. These engines were very slow and inefficient, but they opened the way for the development of a new science. The first and second laws of thermodynamics emerged simultaneously in the 1850s, primarily out of the works of William Rankine, Rudolph Clausius, and Lord Kelvin (formerly William Thomson). The term thermodynamics was first used in a publication by Lord Kelvin in 1849. The first thermodynamics textbook was written in 1859 by William Rankine, a professor at the University of Glasgow. It is wellknown that a substance consists of a large number of particles called molecules. The properties of the substance naturally depend on the behavior of these particles. For example, the pressure of a gas in a container is the result of momentum transfer between the molecules and the walls of the container. However, one does not need to know the behavior of the gas particles to determine the pressure in the container. It would be sufficient to attach a pressure gage to the container. This macroscopic approach to the 3 CHAPTER 1 study of thermodynamics that does not require a knowledge of the behavior of individual particles is called classical thermodynamics. It provides a direct and easy way to the solution of engineering problems. A more elaborate approach, based on the average behavior of large groups of individual particles, is called statistical thermodynamics. This microscopic approach is rather involved and is used in this text only in the supporting role. Application Areas of Thermodynamics All activities in nature involve some interaction between energy and matter; thus, it is hard to imagine an area that does not relate to thermodynamics in some manner. Therefore, developing a good understanding of basic principles of thermodynamics has long been an essential part of engineering education. Thermodynamics is commonly encountered in many engineering systems and other aspects of life, and one does not need to go very far to see some application areas of it. In fact, one does not need to go anywhere. The heart is constantly pumping blood to all parts of the human body, various energy conversions occur in trillions of body cells, and the body heat generated is constantly rejected to the environment. The human comfort is closely tied to the rate of this metabolic heat rejection. We try to control this heat transfer rate by adjusting our clothing to the environmental conditions. Other applications of thermodynamics are right where one lives. An ordinary house is, in some respects, an exhibition hall filled with wonders of thermodynamics (Fig. 1–4). Many ordinary household utensils and appliances are designed, in whole or in part, by using the principles of thermodynamics. Some examples include the electric or gas range, the heating and airconditioning systems, the refrigerator, the humidifier, the pressure cooker, the water heater, the shower, the iron, and even the computer and the TV. On a larger scale, thermodynamics plays a major part in the design and analysis of automotive engines, rockets, jet engines, and conventional or nuclear power plants, solar collectors, and the design of vehicles from ordinary cars to airplanes (Fig. 1–5). The energyefficient home that you may be living in, for example, is designed on the basis of minimizing heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer. The size, location, and the power input of the fan of your computer is also selected after an analysis that involves thermodynamics. 1–2 ■ IMPORTANCE OF DIMENSIONS AND UNITS Any physical quantity can be characterized by dimensions. The magnitudes assigned to the dimensions are called units. Some basic dimensions such as mass m, length L, time t, and temperature T are selected as primary or fundamental dimensions, while others such as velocity V, energy E, and volume V are expressed in terms of the primary dimensions and are called secondary dimensions, or derived dimensions. A number of unit systems have been developed over the years. Despite strong efforts in the scientific and engineering community to unify the world with a single unit system, two sets of units are still in common use today: the English system, which is also known as the United States Solar collectors Shower Hot water Hot water tank Cold water Heat exchanger Pump FIGURE 1–4 The design of many engineering systems, such as this solar hot water system, involves thermodynamics. 4 INTRODUCTION AND BASIC CONCEPTS Refrigerator Boats Aircraft and spacecraft © McGrawHill Education, Jill Braaten © Doug Menuez/Getty Images RF © PhotoLink/Getty Images RF Power plants Human body Cars © Malcolm Fife/Getty Images RF © Ryan McVay/Getty Images RF © Mark Evans/Getty Images RF Wind turbines Food processing A piping network in an industrial facility. © F.

Customary System (USCS), and the metric SI (from Le Système International d’ Unités), which is also known as the International System. The SI is a simple and logical system based on a decimal relationship between the various units, and it is being used for scientific and engineering work in most of the industrialized nations, including England. The English system, however, has no apparent systematic numerical base, and various units in this system are related to each other rather arbitrarily (12 in 5 1 ft, 1 mile 5 5280 ft, 4 qt 5 1 gal, etc.), which makes it confusing and difficult to learn. The United States is the only industrialized country that has not yet fully converted to the metric system. The systematic efforts to develop a universally acceptable system of units dates back to 1790 when the French National Assembly charged the French Academy of Sciences to come up with such a unit system. An early version of the metric system was soon developed in France, but it did not 5 CHAPTER 1 find universal acceptance until 1875 when The Metric Convention Treaty was prepared and signed by 17 nations, including the United States. In this international treaty, meter and gram were established as the metric units for length and mass, respectively, and a General Conference of Weights and Measures (CGPM) was established that was to meet every six years. In 1960, the CGPM produced the SI, which was based on six fundamental quantities, and their units were adopted in 1954 at the Tenth General Conference of Weights and Measures: meter (m) for length, kilogram (kg) for mass, second (s) for time, ampere (A) for electric current, degree Kelvin (°K) for temperature, and candela (cd) for luminous intensity (amount of light). In 1971, the CGPM added a seventh fundamental quantity and unit: mole (mol) for the amount of matter. Based on the notational scheme introduced in 1967, the degree symbol was officially dropped from the absolute temperature unit, and all unit names were to be written without capitalization even if they were derived from proper names (Table 1–1). However, the abbreviation of a unit was to be capitalized if the unit was derived from a proper name. For example, the SI unit of force, which is named after Sir Isaac Newton (1647–1723), is newton (not Newton), and it is abbreviated as N. Also, the full name of a unit may be pluralized, but its abbreviation cannot. For example, the length of an object can be 5 m or 5 meters, not 5 ms or 5 meter. Finally, no period is to be used in unit abbreviations unless they appear at the end of a sentence. For example, the proper abbreviation of meter is m (not m.). The recent move toward the metric system in the United States seems to have started in 1968 when Congress, in response to what was happening in the rest of the world, passed a Metric Study Act. Congress continued to promote a voluntary switch to the metric system by passing the Metric Conversion Act in 1975. A trade bill passed by Congress in 1988 set a September 1992 deadline for all federal agencies to convert to the metric system. However, the deadlines were relaxed later with no clear plans for the future. The industries that are heavily involved in international trade (such as the automotive, soft drink, and liquor industries) have been quick in converting to the metric system for economic reasons (having a single worldwide design, fewer sizes, smaller inventories, etc.). Today, nearly all the cars manufactured in the United States are metric. Most car owners probably do not realize this until they try an English socket wrench on a metric bolt. Most industries, however, resisted the change, thus slowing down the conversion process. Presently the United States is a dualsystem society, and it will stay that way until the transition to the metric system is completed. This puts an extra burden on today’s engineering students, since they are expected to retain their understanding of the English system while learning, thinking, and working in terms of the SI. Given the position of the engineers in the transition period, both unit systems are used in this text, with particular emphasis on SI units. As pointed out, the SI is based on a decimal relationship between units. The prefixes used to express the multiples of the various units are listed in Table 1–2. They are standard for all units, and the student is encouraged to memorize them because of their widespread use (Fig. 1–6).

The respective units in the English system are the poundmass (lbm), foot (ft), and second (s). The pound symbol lb is actually the abbreviation of libra, which was the ancient Roman unit of weight. The English retained this symbol even after the end of the Roman occupation of Britain in 410. The mass and length units in the two systems are related to each other by 1 lbm 5 0.45359 kg 1 ft 5 0.3048 m a = 1 m/s 2 m = 1 kg F=1N In the English system, force is usually considered to be one of the primary dimensions and is assigned a nonderived unit. This is a source of confusion and error that necessitates the use of a dimensional constant (gc) in many formulas. To avoid this nuisance, we consider force to be a secondary dimension whose unit is derived from Newton’s second law, that is, Force 5 (Mass)(Acceleration) a = 1 ft/s 2 m = 32.174 lbm F = 1 lbf or F 5 ma FIGURE 1–7 The definition of the force units. (1–1) In SI, the force unit is the newton (N), and it is defined as the force required to accelerate a mass of 1 kg at a rate of 1 m/s2. In the English system, the force unit is the poundforce (lbf) and is defined as the force required to accelerate a mass of 32.174 lbm (1 slug) at a rate of 1 ft/s2 (Fig. 1–7). That is, 1 kgf 1 N 5 1 kg·m/s2 10 apples m ⬇ 1 kg 1 apple m ⬇ 102 g 1N 1 lbf 5 32.174 lbm·ft/s2 4 apples m ⬇ 1 lbm 1 lbf A force of 1 N is roughly equivalent to the weight of a small apple (m 5 102 g), whereas a force of 1 lbf is roughly equivalent to the weight of four medium apples (mtotal 5 454 g), as shown in Fig. 1–8. Another force unit in common use in many European countries is the kilogramforce (kgf), which is the weight of 1 kg mass at sea level (1 kgf 5 9.807 N). The term weight is often incorrectly used to express mass, particularly by the “weight watchers.” Unlike mass, weight W is a force. It is the gravitational force applied to a body, and its magnitude is determined from Newton’s second law, W 5 mg (N) FIGURE 1–8 The relative magnitudes of the force units newton (N), kilogramforce (kgf), and poundforce (lbf). (1–2) where m is the mass of the body, and g is the local gravitational acceleration (g is 9.807 m/s2 or 32.174 ft/s2 at sea level and 45° latitude). An ordinary bathroom scale measures the gravitational force acting on a body. The mass of a body remains the same regardless of its location in the universe. Its weight, however, changes with a change in gravitational acceleration. A body weighs less on top of a mountain since g decreases 7 CHAPTER 1 with altitude. On the surface of the moon, an astronaut weighs about onesixth of what she or he normally weighs on earth (Fig. 1–9). At sea level a mass of 1 kg weighs 9.807 N, as illustrated in Fig. 1–10. A mass of 1 lbm, however, weighs 1 lbf, which misleads people to believe that poundmass and poundforce can be used interchangeably as pound (lb), which is a major source of error in the English system. It should be noted that the gravity force acting on a mass is due to the attraction between the masses, and thus it is proportional to the magnitudes of the masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Therefore, the gravitational acceleration g at a location depends on the local density of the earth’s crust, the distance to the center of the earth, and to a lesser extent, the positions of the moon and the sun. The value of g varies with location from 9.832 m/s2 at the poles (9.789 at the equator) to 7.322 m/s2 at 1000 km above sea level. However, at altitudes up to 30 km, the variation of g from the sealevel value of 9.807 m/s2 is less than 1 percent. Therefore, for most practical purposes, the gravitational acceleration can be assumed to be constant at 9.807 m/s2, often rounded to 9.81 m/s2. It is interesting to note that at locations below sea level, the value of g increases with distance from the sea level, reaches a maximum at about 4500 m, and then starts decreasing. (What do you think the value of g is at the center of the earth?) The primary cause of confusion between mass and weight is that mass is usually measured indirectly by measuring the gravity force it exerts. This approach also assumes that the forces exerted by other effects such as air buoyancy and fluid motion are negligible. This is like measuring the distance to a star by measuring its red shift, or measuring the altitude of an airplane by measuring barometric pressure. Both of these are also indirect measurements. The correct direct way of measuring mass is to compare it to a known mass. This is cumbersome, however, and it is mostly used for calibration and measuring precious metals. Work, which is a form of energy, can simply be defined as force times distance; therefore, it has the unit “newtonmeter (N·m),” which is called a joule (J). That is, 1 J 5 1 N·m FIGURE 1–9 A body weighing 150 lbf on earth will weigh only 25 lbf on the moon. kg lbm g = 9.807 m/s2 W = 9.807 kg·m/s2 = 9.807 N = 1 kgf g = 32.174 ft/s2 W = 32.174 lbm·ft/s2 = 1 lbf FIGURE 1–10 The weight of a unit mass at sea level. (1–3) A more common unit for energy in SI is the kilojoule (1 kJ 5 103 J). In the English system, the energy unit is the Btu (British thermal unit), which is defined as the energy required to raise the temperature of 1 lbm of water at 68°F by 1°F. In the metric system, the amount of energy needed to raise the temperature of 1 g of water at 14.5°C by 1°C is defined as 1 calorie (cal), and 1 cal 5 4.1868 J. The magnitudes of the kilojoule and Btu are almost identical (1 Btu 5 1.0551 kJ). Here is a good way to get a feel for these units: If you light a typical match and let it burn itself out, it yields approximately one Btu (or one kJ) of energy (Fig. 1–11). The unit for time rate of energy is joule per second (J/s), which is called a watt (W). In the case of work, the time rate of energy is called power. A commonly used unit of power is horsepower (hp), which is equivalent to 746 W. Electrical energy typically is expressed in the unit kilowatthour (kWh), which is equivalent to 3600 kJ. An electric appliance with a rated power of 1 kW consumes 1 kWh of electricity when running continuously FIGURE 1–11 A typical match yields about one Btu (or one kJ) of energy if completely burned.

Note that kW or kJ/s is a unit of power, whereas kWh is a unit of energy. Therefore, statements like “the new wind turbine will generate 50 kW of electricity per year” are meaningless and incorrect. A correct statement should be something like “the new wind turbine with a rated power of 50 kW will generate 120,000 kWh of electricity per year.” Dimensional Homogeneity We all know that apples and oranges do not add. But we somehow manage to do it (by mistake, of course). In engineering, all equations must be dimensionally homogeneous. That is, every term in an equation must have the same unit. If, at some stage of an analysis, we find ourselves in a position to add two quantities that have different units, it is a clear indication that we have made an error at an earlier stage. So checking dimensions can serve as a valuable tool to spot errors. EXAMPLE 1–1 Electric Power Generation by a Wind Turbine A school is paying $0.12/kWh for electric power. To reduce its power bill, the school installs a wind turbine (Fig. 1–12) with a rated power of 30 kW. If the turbine operates 2200 hours per year at the rated power, determine the amount of electric power generated by the wind turbine and the money saved by the school per year. SOLUTION A wind turbine is installed to generate electricity. The amount of electric energy generated and the money saved per year are to be determined. Analysis The wind turbine generates electric energy at a rate of 30 kW or 30 kJ/s. Then the total amount of electric energy generated per year becomes Total energy 5 (Energy per unit time)(Time interval) 5 (30 kW)(2200 h) 5 66,000 kWh The money saved per year is the monetary value of this energy determined as Money saved 5 (Total energy)(Unit cost of energy) 5 (66,000 kWh)($0.12/kWh) 5 $7920 Discussion The annual electric energy production also could be determined in kJ by unit manipulations as FIGURE 1–12 A wind turbine, as discussed in Example 1–1. ©Bear Dancer Studios/Mark Dierker RF Total energy 5 (30 kW)(2200 h)a 3600 s 1 kJ/s ba b 5 2.38 3 108 kJ 1h 1 kW which is equivalent to 66,000 kWh (1 kWh = 3600 kJ). We all know from experience that units can give terrible headaches if they are not used carefully in solving a problem. However, with some attention and skill, units can be used to our advantage. They can be used to check formulas; sometimes they can even be used to derive formulas, as explained in the following example. 9 CHAPTER 1 EXAMPLE 1–2 Obtaining Formulas from Unit Considerations A tank is filled with oil whose density is r 5 850 kg/m3. If the volume of the tank is V 5 2 m3, determine the amount of mass m in the tank. Oil = 2 m3 ρ = 850 kg/m3 m=? SOLUTION The volume of an oil tank is given. The mass of oil is to be determined. Assumptions Oil is a nearly incompressible substance and thus its density is constant. Analysis A sketch of the system just described is given in Fig. 1–13. Suppose we forgot the formula that relates mass to density and volume. However, we know that mass has the unit of kilograms. That is, whatever calculations we do, we should end up with the unit of kilograms. Putting the given information into perspective, we have r 5 850 kg/m3 and FIGURE 1–13 Schematic for Example 1–2. V 5 2 m3 It is obvious that we can eliminate m3 and end up with kg by multiplying these two quantities. Therefore, the formula we are looking for should be m 5 rV Thus, m 5 (850 kg/m3)(2 m3) 5 1700 kg Discussion Note that this approach may not work for more complicated formulas. Nondimensional constants also may be present in the formulas, and these cannot be derived from unit considerations alone. You should keep in mind that a formula that is not dimensionally homogeneous is definitely wrong (Fig. 1–14), but a dimensionally homogeneous formula is not necessarily right. Unity Conversion Ratios FIGURE 1–14 Always check the units in your calculations. Just as all nonprimary dimensions can be formed by suitable combinations of primary dimensions, all nonprimary units (secondary units) can be formed by combinations of primary units. Force units, for example, can be expressed as 1 N 5 1 kg m s2 and 1 lbf 5 32.174 lbm ft s2 They can also be expressed more conveniently as unity conversion ratios as 1N 51 1 kg·m /s2 and 1 lbf 51 32.174 lbm·ft /s2 Unity conversion ratios are identically equal to 1 and are unitless, and thus such ratios (or their inverses) can be inserted conveniently into any calculation to properly convert units (Fig. 1–15). You are encouraged to always use unity conversion ratios such as those given here when converting units. Some textbooks insert the archaic gravitational constant gc defined as gc 5 32.174 lbm·ft/lbf·s2 5 1 kg·m/N·s2 5 1 into equations in order to force 32.174 lbm?ft/s2 1 kg?m/s2 1 lbf 1N 1W 1 J/s 1 kJ 1000 N?m 0.3048 m 1 ft 1 min 60 s 1 kPa 1000 N/m2 1 lbm 0.45359 kg FIGURE 1–15 Every unity conversion ratio (as well as its inverse) is exactly equal to one. Shown here are a few commonly used unity conversion ratios. 10 INTRODUCTION AND BASIC CONCEPTS units to match. This practice leads to unnecessary confusion and is strongly discouraged by the present authors. We recommend that you instead use unity conversion ratios. lbm EXAMPLE 1–3 The Weight of One PoundMass Using unity conversion ratios, show that 1.00 lbm weighs 1.00 lbf on earth (Fig. 1–16). FIGURE 1–16 A mass of 1 lbm weighs 1 lbf on earth. SOLUTION A mass of 1.00 lbm is subjected to standard earth gravity. Its weight in lbf is to be determined. Assumptions Standard sealevel conditions are assumed. Properties The gravitational constant is g 5 32.174 ft/s2. Analysis We apply Newton’s second law to calculate the weight (force) that corresponds to the known mass and acceleration. The weight of any object is equal to its mass times the local value of gravitational acceleration. Thus, W 5 mg 5 (1.00 lbm)(32.174 ft /s2)a Net weight: One pound (454 grams) 1 lbf b 5 1.00 lbf 32.174 lbm·ft /s2 Discussion The quantity in large parentheses in this equation is a unity conversion ratio. Mass is the same regardless of its location. However, on some other planet with a different value of gravitational acceleration, the weight of 1 lbm would differ from that calculated here. When you buy a box of breakfast cereal, the printing may say “Net weight: One pound (454 grams).” (See Fig. 1–17.) Technically, this means that the cereal inside the box weighs 1.00 lbf on earth and has a mass of 453.6 g (0.4536 kg). Using Newton’s second law, the actual weight of the cereal on earth is W 5 mg 5 (453.6 g)(9.81 m/s2)a FIGURE 1–17 A quirk in the metric system of units. Surroundings System Boundary FIGURE 1–18 System, surroundings, and boundary. 1–3 ■ 1 kg 1N ba b 5 4.49 N 1 kg·m/s2 1000 g SYSTEMS AND CONTROL VOLUMES A system is defined as a quantity of matter or a region in space chosen for study. The mass or region outside the system is called the surroundings. The real or imaginary surface that separates the system from its surroundings is called the boundary (Fig. 1–18). The boundary of a system can be fixed or movable. Note that the boundary is the contact surface shared by both the system and the surroundings. Mathematically speaking, the boundary has zero thickness, and thus it can neither contain any mass nor occupy any volume in space. Systems may be considered to be closed or open, depending on whether a fixed mass or a fixed volume in space is chosen for study. A closed system (also known as a control mass or just system when the context makes it clear) consists of a fixed amount of mass, and no mass can cross its boundary. That is, no mass can enter or leave a closed system, as shown in 11 CHAPTER 1 Fig. 1–19. But energy, in the form of heat or work, can cross the boundary; and the volume of a closed system does not have to be fixed. If, as a special case, even energy is not allowed to cross the boundary, that system is called an isolated system. Consider the pistoncylinder device shown in Fig. 1–20. Let us say that we would like to find out what happens to the enclosed gas when it is heated. Since we are focusing our attention on the gas, it is our system. The inner surfaces of the piston and the cylinder form the boundary, and since no mass is crossing this boundary, it is a closed system. Notice that energy may cross the boundary, and part of the boundary (the inner surface of the piston, in this case) may move. Everything outside the gas, including the piston and the cylinder, is the surroundings. An open system, or a control volume, as it is often called, is a properly selected region in space. It usually encloses a device that involves mass flow such as a compressor, turbine, or nozzle. Flow through these devices is best studied by selecting the region within the device as the control volume. Both mass and energy can cross the boundary of a control volume. A large number of engineering problems involve mass flow in and out of a system and, therefore, are modeled as control volumes. A water heater, a car radiator, a turbine, and a compressor all involve mass flow and should be analyzed as control volumes (open systems) instead of as control masses (closed systems). In general, any arbitrary region in space can be selected as a control volume. There are no concrete rules for the selection of control volumes, but the proper choice certainly makes the analysis much easier. If we were to analyze the flow of air through a nozzle, for example, a good choice for the control volume would be the region within the nozzle. The boundaries of a control volume are called a control surface, and they can be real or imaginary. In the case of a nozzle, the inner surface of the nozzle forms the real part of the boundary, and the entrance and exit areas form the imaginary part, since there are no physical surfaces there (Fig. 1–21a). Imaginary boundary Closed system Mass No m = constant Energy Yes FIGURE 1–19 Mass cannot cross the boundaries of a closed system, but energy can.

Most control volumes, however, have fixed boundaries and thus do not involve any moving boundaries. A control volume can also involve heat and work interactions just as a closed system, in addition to mass interaction. As an example of an open system, consider the water heater shown in Fig. 1–22. Let us say that we would like to determine how much heat we must transfer to the water in the tank in order to supply a steady stream of hot water. Since hot water will leave the tank and be replaced by cold water, it is not convenient to choose a fixed mass as our system for the analysis. Instead, we can concentrate our attention on the volume formed by the interior surfaces of the tank and consider the hot and cold water streams as mass leaving and entering the control volume. The interior surfaces of the tank form the control surface for this case, and mass is crossing the control surface at two locations. In an engineering analysis, the system under study must be defined carefully. In most cases, the system investigated is quite simple and obvious, and defining the system may seem like a tedious and unnecessary task. In other cases, however, the system under study may be rather involved, and a proper choice of the system may greatly simplify the analysis. FIGURE 1–22 An open system (a control volume) with one inlet and one exit. © McGrawHill Education, Christopher Kerrigan 1–4 ■ PROPERTIES OF A SYSTEM Any characteristic of a system is called a property. Some familiar properties are pressure P, temperature T, volume V, and mass m. The list can be extended to include less familiar ones such as viscosity, thermal conductivity, modulus of elasticity, thermal expansion coefficient, electric resistivity, and even velocity and elevation. Properties are considered to be either intensive or extensive. Intensive properties are those that are independent of the mass of a system, such as temperature, pressure, and density. Extensive properties are those whose values depend on the size—or extent—of the system. Total mass, total volume, and total momentum are some examples of extensive properties. An easy way to determine whether a property is intensive or extensive is to divide the system into two equal parts with an imaginary partition, as shown in Fig. 1–23. Each part will have the same value of intensive properties as the original system, but half the value of the extensive properties. Generally, uppercase letters are used to denote extensive properties (with mass m being a major exception), and lowercase letters are used for intensive properties (with pressure P and temperature T being the obvious exceptions). Extensive properties per unit mass are called specific properties. Some examples of specific properties are specific volume (v 5 V/m) and specific total energy (e 5 E/m). Continuum FIGURE 1–23 Criterion to differentiate intensive and extensive properties. Matter is made up of atoms that are widely spaced in the gas phase. Yet it is very convenient to disregard the atomic nature of a substance and view it as a continuous, homogeneous matter with no holes, that is, a continuum. 13 CHAPTER 1 The continuum idealization allows us to treat properties as point functions and to assume the properties vary continually in space with no jump discontinuities. This idealization is valid as long as the size of the system we deal with is large relative to the space between the molecules. This is the case in practically all problems, except some specialized ones. The continuum idealization is implicit in many statements we make, such as “the density of water in a glass is the same at any point.” To have a sense of the distance involved at the molecular level, consider a container filled with oxygen at atmospheric conditions. The diameter of the oxygen molecule is about 3 3 10210 m and its mass is 5.3 3 10226 kg. Also, the mean free path of oxygen at 1 atm pressure and 20°C is 6.3 3 1028 m. That is, an oxygen molecule travels, on average, a distance of 6.3 3 1028 m (about 200 times of its diameter) before it collides with another molecule. Also, there are about 3 3 1016 molecules of oxygen in the tiny volume of 1 mm3 at 1 atm pressure and 20°C (Fig. 1–24). The continuum model is applicable as long as the characteristic length of the system (such as its diameter) is much larger than the mean free path of the molecules. At very high vacuums or very high elevations, the mean free path may become large (for example, it is about 0.1 m for atmospheric air at an elevation of 100 km). For such cases the rarefied gas flow theory should be used, and the impact of individual molecules should be considered. In this text we will limit our consideration to substances that can be modeled as a continuum. 1–5 ■ O2 1 atm, 20°C 3 ´ 1016 molecules/mm3 VOID FIGURE 1–24 Despite the relatively large gaps between molecules, a gas can usually be treated as a continuum because of the very large number of molecules even in an extremely small volume. DENSITY AND SPECIFIC GRAVITY Density is defined as mass per unit volume (Fig. 1–25). Density: r5 m V (kg/m3) (1–4) The reciprocal of density is the specific volume v, which is defined as volume per unit mass. That is, v5 V 1 5 r m V = 12 m 3 m = 3 kg r = 0.25 kg/m 3 1 3 v=– r = 4 m /kg (1–5) For a differential volume element of mass dm and volume dV, density can be expressed as r 5 dm/dV. The density of a substance, in general, depends on temperature and pressure. The density of most gases is proportional to pressure and inversely proportional to temperature. Liquids and solids, on the other hand, are essentially incompressible substances, and the variation of their density with pressure is usually negligible. At 20°C, for example, the density of water changes from 998 kg/m3 at 1 atm to 1003 kg/m3 at 100 atm, a change of just 0.5 percent. The density of liquids and solids depends more strongly on temperature than it does on pressure. At 1 atm, for example, the density of water changes from 998 kg/m3 at 20°C to 975 kg/m3 at 75°C, a change of 2.3 percent, which can still be neglected in many engineering analyses. FIGURE 1–25 Density is mass per unit volume; specific volume is volume per unit mass. 14 INTRODUCTION AND BASIC CONCEPTS Sometimes the density of a substance is given relative to the density of a wellknown substance. Then it is called specific gravity, or relative density, and is defined as the ratio of the density of a substance to the density of some standard substance at a specified temperature (usually water at 4°C, for which rH2O 5 1000 kg/m3). That is, TABLE 1–3 Specific gravities of some substances at 0°C Substance SG Water Blood Seawater Gasoline Ethyl alcohol Mercury Wood Gold Bones Ice Air (at 1 atm) 1.0 1.05 1.025 0.7 0.79 13.6 0.3–0.9 19.2 1.7–2.0 0.92 0.0013 Specific gravity: SG 5 r rH2O (1–6) Note that the specific gravity of a substance is a dimensionless quantity. However, in SI units, the numerical value of the specific gravity of a substance is exactly equal to its density in g/cm3 or kg/L (or 0.001 times the density in kg/m3) since the density of water at 4°C is 1 g/cm3 5 1 kg/L 5 1000 kg/m3. The specific gravity of mercury at 0°C, for example, is 13.6. Therefore, its density at 0°C is 13.6 g/cm3 5 13.6 kg/L 5 13,600 kg/m3. The specific gravities of some substances at 0°C are given in Table 1–3. Note that substances with specific gravities less than 1 are lighter than water, and thus they would float on water. The weight of a unit volume of a substance is called specific weight and is expressed as Specific weight: gs 5 rg (N/m3) (1–7) where g is the gravitational acceleration. The densities of liquids are essentially constant, and thus they can often be approximated as being incompressible substances during most processes without sacrificing much in accuracy. m = 2 kg T1 = 20°C V1 = 1.5 m3 (a) State 1 m = 2 kg T2 = 20°C V2 = 2.5 m3 (b) State 2 FIGURE 1–26 A system at two different states. 20°C 23°C 30°C 35°C 40°C 42°C (a) Before 32°C 32°C 32°C 32°C 32°C 32°C (b) After FIGURE 1–27 A closed system reaching thermal equilibrium. 1–6 ■ STATE AND EQUILIBRIUM Consider a system not undergoing any change. At this point, all the properties can be measured or calculated throughout the entire system, which gives us a set of properties that completely describes the condition, or the state, of the system. At a given state, all the properties of a system have fixed values. If the value of even one property changes, the state will change to a different one. In Fig. 1–26 a system is shown at two different states. Thermodynamics deals with equilibrium states. The word equilibrium implies a state of balance. In an equilibrium state there are no unbalanced potentials (or driving forces) within the system. A system in equilibrium experiences no changes when it is isolated from its surroundings. There are many types of equilibrium, and a system is not in thermodynamic equilibrium unless the conditions of all the relevant types of equilibrium are satisfied. For example, a system is in thermal equilibrium if the temperature is the same throughout the entire system, as shown in Fig. 1–27. That is, the system involves no temperature differential, which is the driving force for heat flow. Mechanical equilibrium is related to pressure, and a system is in mechanical equilibrium if there is no change in pressure at any point of the system with time. However, the pressure may vary within the system with elevation as a result of gravitational effects. 15 CHAPTER 1 For example, the higher pressure at a bottom layer is balanced by the extra weight it must carry, and, therefore, there is no imbalance of forces. The variation of pressure as a result of gravity in most thermodynamic systems is relatively small and usually disregarded. If a system involves two phases, it is in phase equilibrium when the mass of each phase reaches an equilibrium level and stays there. Finally, a system is in chemical equilibrium if its chemical composition does not change with time, that is, no chemical reactions occur. A system will not be in equilibrium unless all the relevant equilibrium criteria are satisfied. The State Postulate As noted earlier, the state of a system is described by its properties. But we know from experience that we do not need to specify all the properties in order to fix a state. Once a sufficient number of properties are specified, the rest of the properties assume certain values automatically. That is, specifying a certain number of properties is sufficient to fix a state. The number of properties required to fix the state of a system is given by the state postulate: The state of a simple compressible system is completely specified by two independent, intensive properties. A system is called a simple compressible system in the absence of electrical, magnetic, gravitational, motion, and surface tension effects. These effects are due to external force fields and are negligible for most engineering problems. Otherwise, an additional property needs to be specified for each effect that is significant. If the gravitational effects are to be considered, for example, the elevation z needs to be specified in addition to the two properties necessary to fix the state. The state postulate requires that the two properties specified be independent to fix the state. Two properties are independent if one property can be varied while the other one is held constant. Temperature and specific volume, for example, are always independent properties, and together they can fix the state of a simple compressible system (Fig. 1–28). Temperature and pressure, however, are independent properties for singlephase systems, but are dependent properties for multiphase systems. At sea level (P 5 1 atm), water boils at 100°C, but on a mountaintop where the pressure is lower, water boils at a lower temperature. That is, T 5 f(P) during a phasechange process; thus, temperature and pressure are not sufficient to fix the state of a twophase system. Phasechange processes are discussed in detail in Chap. 3. 1–7 ■ Nitrogen T = 25°C v = 0.9 m3/kg FIGURE 1–28 The state of nitrogen is fixed by two independent, intensive properties. Property A State 2 Process path PROCESSES AND CYCLES Any change that a system undergoes from one equilibrium state to another is called a process, and the series of states through which a system passes during a process is called the path of the process (Fig. 1–29). To describe a process completely, one should specify the initial and final states of the process, as well as the path it follows, and the interactions with the surroundings. State 1 Property B FIGURE 1–29 A process between states 1 and 2 and the process path. 16 INTRODUCTION AND BASIC CONCEPTS (a) Slow compression (quasiequilibrium) (b) Very fast compression (nonquasiequilibrium) FIGURE 1–30 Quasiequilibrium and nonquasiequilibrium compression processes. P Final state 2 Process path Initial state 1 V2 V1 V System (2) (1) FIGURE 1–31 The PV diagram of a compression process. When a process proceeds in such a manner that the system remains infinitesimally close to an equilibrium state at all times, it is called a quasistatic, or quasiequilibrium, process. A quasiequilibrium process can be viewed as a sufficiently slow process that allows the system to adjust itself internally so that properties in one part of the system do not change any faster than those at other parts. This is illustrated in Fig. 1–30. When a gas in a pistoncylinder device is compressed suddenly, the molecules near the face of the piston will not have enough time to escape and they will have to pile up in a small region in front of the piston, thus creating a highpressure region there. Because of this pressure difference, the system can no longer be said to be in equilibrium, and this makes the entire process nonquasiequilibrium. However, if the piston is moved slowly, the molecules will have sufficient time to redistribute and there will not be a molecule pileup in front of the piston. As a result, the pressure inside the cylinder will always be nearly uniform and will rise at the same rate at all locations. Since equilibrium is maintained at all times, this is a quasiequilibrium process. It should be pointed out that a quasiequilibrium process is an idealized process and is not a true representation of an actual process. But many actual processes closely approximate it, and they can be modeled as quasiequilibrium with negligible error. Engineers are interested in quasiequilibrium processes for two reasons. First, they are easy to analyze; second, workproducing devices deliver the most work when they operate on quasiequilibrium processes. Therefore, quasiequilibrium processes serve as standards to which actual processes can be compared. Process diagrams plotted by employing thermodynamic properties as coordinates are very useful in visualizing the processes. Some common properties that are used as coordinates are temperature T, pressure P, and volume V (or specific volume v). Figure 1–31 shows the PV diagram of a compression process of a gas. Note that the process path indicates a series of equilibrium states through which the system passes during a process and has significance for quasiequilibrium processes only. For nonquasiequilibrium processes, we are not able to characterize the entire system by a single state, and thus we cannot speak of a process path for a system as a whole. A nonquasiequilibrium process is denoted by a dashed line between the initial and final states instead of a solid line. The prefix iso is often used to designate a process for which a particular property remains constant. An isothermal process, for example, is a process during which the temperature T remains constant; an isobaric process is a process during which the pressure P remains constant; and an isochoric (or isometric) process is a process during which the specific volume v remains constant. A system is said to have undergone a cycle if it returns to its initial state at the end of the process. That is, for a cycle the initial and final states are identical. The SteadyFlow Process The terms steady and uniform are used frequently in engineering, and thus it is important to have a clear understanding of their meanings. The term 17 CHAPTER 1 steady implies no change with time. The opposite of steady is unsteady, or transient. The term uniform, however, implies no change with location over a specified region. These meanings are consistent with their everyday use (steady girlfriend, uniform properties, etc.). A large number of engineering devices operate for long periods of time under the same conditions, and they are classified as steadyflow devices. Processes involving such devices can be represented reasonably well by a somewhat idealized process, called the steadyflow process, which can be defined as a process during which a fluid flows through a control volume steadily (Fig. 1–32). That is, the fluid properties can change from point to point within the control volume, but at any fixed point they remain the same during the entire process. Therefore, the volume V, the mass m, and the total energy content E of the control volume remain constant during a steadyflow process (Fig. 1–33). Steadyflow conditions can be closely approximated by devices that are intended for continuous operation such as turbines, pumps, boilers, condensers, and heat exchangers or power plants or refrigeration systems. Some cyclic devices, such as reciprocating engines or compressors, do not satisfy any of the conditions stated above since the flow at the inlets and the exits will be pulsating and not steady. However, the fluid properties vary with time in a periodic manner, and the flow through these devices can still be analyzed as a steadyflow process by using timeaveraged values for the properties. 1–8 ■ TEMPERATURE AND THE ZEROTH LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS Although we are familiar with temperature as a measure of “hotness” or “coldness,” it is not easy to give an exact definition for it. Based on our physiological sensations, we express the level of temperature qualitatively with words like freezing cold, cold, warm, hot, and redhot. However, we cannot assign numerical values to temperatures based on our sensations alone. Furthermore, our senses may be misleading. A metal chair, for example, will feel much colder than a wooden one even when both are at the same temperature. Fortunately, several properties of materials change with temperature in a repeatable and predictable way, and this forms the basis for accurate temperature measurement. The commonly used mercuryinglass thermometer, for example, is based on the expansion of mercury with temperature. Temperature is also measured by using several other temperaturedependent properties. It is a common experience that a cup of hot coffee left on the table eventually cools off and a cold drink eventually warms up. That is, when a body is brought into contact with another body that is at a different temperature, heat is transferred from the body at higher temperature to the one at lower temperature until both bodies attain the same temperature (Fig. 1–34). At that point, the heat transfer stops, and the two bodies are said to have reached thermal equilibrium. The equality of temperature is the only requirement for thermal equilibrium.

It may seem silly that such an obvious fact is called one of the basic laws of thermodynamics. However, it cannot be concluded from the other laws of thermodynamics, and it serves as a basis for the validity of temperature measurement. By replacing the third body with a thermometer, the zeroth law can be restated as two bodies are in thermal equilibrium if both have the same temperature reading even if they are not in contact. The zeroth law was first formulated and labeled by R. H. Fowler in 1931. As the name suggests, its value as a fundamental physical principle was recognized more than half a century after the formulation of the first and the second laws of thermodynamics. It was named the zeroth law since it should have preceded the first and the second laws of thermodynamics. Temperature Scales Temperature scales enable us to use a common basis fo
