Slide 7 Example Problem Light bulbs are rated by the power that they consume, not the light that they emit.
A 100 W incandescent bulb emits approximately 4 W of visible light. What is the efficiency of the bulb? © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 8 Efficiency © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 9 Example Problems A person lifts a 20 kg box from the ground to a height of 1. 0 m. A metabolic measurement shows that in doing this work her body uses 780 J of energy. What is her efficiency? A 75 kg person climbs the 248 steps to the top of the Cape Hatteras lighthouse, a total climb of 59 m. How many Calories does he burn? © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 10 Checking Understanding
When you walk at a constant speed on level ground, what energy transformation is taking place? A. B. C. D. E. Echem ? Ug Ug ? Eth Echem ? K Echem ? Eth K ? Eth © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 11 Example Problem How far could a 68 kg person cycle at 15 km/hr on the energy in one slice of pizza? How far could she walk, at 5 km/hr? How far could she run, at 15 km/hr? Do you notice any trends in the distance values that you’ve calculated? Chemical energy from food is used for each of these activities. What happens to this energy—that is, in what form does it end up? 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 12 The Ideal Gas Model 2 Kavg T? 3 kB © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.

Slide 16 Example Problem Using a fan to move air in a room will make you feel cooler, but it will actually warm up the room air. A small desk fan uses 50 W of electricity; all of this energy ends up as thermal energy in the air of the room in which it operates. The air in a typical bedroom consists of about 8. 0 x 1026 atoms. Suppose a small fan is running, using 50 W. And suppose that there is no other transfer of energy, as work or heat, into or out of, the air in the oom. By how much does the temperature of the room increase during 10 minutes of running the fan? © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 17 Example Problem: Work and Heat in an Ideal Gas A container holds 4. 0 x 1022 molecules of an ideal gas at 0 °C. A piston compresses the gas, doing 30 J of work. At the end of the compression, the gas temperature has increased to 10 °C. During this process, how much heat is transferred to or from the environment? © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.

Slide 20 Example Problem: Geothermal Efficiency At The Geysers geothermal power plant in northern California, electricity is generated by using the temperature difference between the 15 °C surface and 240 °C rock deep underground. What is the maximum possible efficiency? What happens to the energy that is extracted from the steam that is not converted to electricity? © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.

Slide 23 Checking Understanding: Increasing Efficiency of a Heat Pump Which of the following changes would allow your refrigerator to use less energy to run? (1) Increasing the temperature inside the refrigerator; (2) increasing the temperature of the kitchen; (3) decreasing the temperature inside the refrigerator; (4) decreasing the temperature of the kitchen.

Systems naturally evolve to states of higher entropy. 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 25 Second Law of Thermodynamics © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 26 Example Problem: Coming to a Stop A typical gasoline-powered car stops by braking. Friction in the brakes brings the car to rest by transforming kinetic energy to thermal energy. Electric vehicles often stop by using regenerative braking, with the engine used as a generator, transforming the kinetic energy of the vehicle into electric energy that recharges the battery. The energy is thus ultimately transformed to chemical energy in the battery.
Which type of stopping involves a larger change in entropy? Which vehicle is apt to be more efficient? Explain, using energy and entropy concepts. © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Slide 27 Example Problem: A Second-Law Workaround? When you run a heat engine, some (or most) of the energy is “wasted” as heat transferred to the cold reservoir. Suppose someone suggests making a 100% efficient heat engine by using some of the output of the heat engine to run a heat pump to transfer this heat back to the hot reservoir. Let’s do a calculation to see if this is a workable solution. A.
If you have a heat engine that runs between a hot reservoir at 100°C and a cold reservoir at a temperature of 0°C, what is the maximum efficiency? B. If the engine draws 100 J from the hot reservoir, what is the maximum possible energy output? How much heat is deposited in the cold reservoir? C. How much energy would it take to run a heat pump between the cold and the hot reservoirs to pump this heat back to the hot reservoir? D. Compare the energy output of the heat engine and the energy input to the heat pump. Comment on the feasibility of the proposed scheme. © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.
