Thermodynamics is the study of the relations between heat, work, temperature, and energy. The laws of thermodynamics describe how the energy in a system changes and whether the system can perform useful work on its surroundings. 1st Law of Thermodynamics - Energy cannot be created or destroyed. 2nd Law of Thermodynamics - For a spontaneous process, the entropy of the universe increases. 3rd Law of Thermodynamics - A perfect crystal at zero Kelvin has zero entropy.
Whenever a physical body or a chemical molecule does some amount of work, it produces heat. The release of heat has several factors attached to it and the chapter 6 of class 11 chemistry syllabus elucidates the same. For the students preparing for their class 11 Chemistry examination or any other competitive exams like JEE mains or advanced, having a firm hold of chemistry concepts is crucial. So, let’s begin and get an insight into class 11 thermodynamics.
