To this point, we have discussed q and w, as well as U and H. The first law of thermodynamics states that in any process, the total energy of the universe remains constant. However, it does not predict which of several possible energy conserving processes will occur. Consider the following two examples. A metal rod initially at a uniform temperature could, in principle, undergo a spontaneous transformation in which one end becomes hot and the other end becomes cold without being in conflict… CONTINUE READING
