# Physics Thermodynamics review

 Q=mL Equation to use for a phase change from solid<->liquid Q=mV Equation to use for a phase change from liquid<->gas Equation to use when remaining a phase and changing temperature Specific Heat Amount of heat needed to raise the temperature Latent heat Heat released or absorbed by an object Thermal energy Amount of energy an object has relitive to it's heat Thermal equilibrium When two objects reach the same temperature after being put together Kelvin -> Celcius Change of 273. Celsius -> Kelvin= -273Kelvin -> Celsius= +273 Isothermic ~Equalling of temperature ~Thermic- Temperature Isobaric ~Equalling of pressure ~Baric- Barametor Isochoric ~Equalling of volume ~Also called isovolumetric ~Choric- Chorus has volume Adiabatic ~No change in anything ~ "a"- no Conductor ~When an item transfers heat well ~"When a woman is struck by lighting on a train, how long until it reaches the driver? Depends on if he's a good conductor." Conduction ~Heat transfer through direct contact ~Stove top Convection ~Heat transfer through fluid motion ~Convection oven Radiation ~Heat transfer through energy ~Microwave Insulator ~Item that doesn't transfer heat well ~Wooden spoon 1st law of thermodynamics ~Increase internal energy due to ading heat or doing work ~ excercising in a small room 2nd law of thermodynamics ~ Molecules want more entropy ~Kindergardners reading time vs. play time Entropy Molecules need for space AuthorAnonymous ID199889 Card SetPhysics Thermodynamics review DescriptionReview for a thermodynamics test in Physics.
