Thermodynamics
 1. Thermodynamics is a branch of physics that deals with the relationships between heat, energy, and work. It explores how thermal energy is converted into other forms of energy and how heat flows between systems. Thermodynamics also studies the interactions between matter and energy in systems, and how those interactions affect the physical properties of materials. It is a fundamental concept in understanding the behavior of gases, liquids, and solids, and plays a crucial role in fields such as engineering, chemistry, and environmental science.What is the first law of thermodynamics?A) Energy always flows from hot to cold.B) Entropy always increases in an isolated system.C) Temperature is directly proportional to the volume of a gas.D) Energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed.2. What is entropy?A) A measure of the disorder or randomness of a system.B) The sum of internal energy and work done by a system.C) The ability of a system to do work.D) The total kinetic energy of a system.3. What is specific heat capacity?A) The ability of a substance to conduct heat.B) The maximum temperature a substance can reach before changing state.C) The total heat capacity of a substance.D) The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of one unit mass of a substance by one degree Celsius.4. What is a thermodynamic equilibrium state?A) A state where entropy is minimized.B) A state in which properties such as temperature and pressure do not change with time.C) A state where the system is at its maximum work capacity.D) A state where heat transfer is maximized.5. What is a phase change in thermodynamics?A) A transition of a substance from one state to another, such as solid to liquid.B) A change in the specific heat capacity of a substance.C) A change in the phase of a gas caused by temperature increase.D) A change in the pressure of a system resulting in a temperature change.6. What is the definition of specific volume?A) The volume at which a substance undergoes phase change.B) The volume occupied by a unit mass of a substance.C) The volume required to raise a substance's temperature by one degree Celsius.D) The total volume of a substance.7. What is Gibbs free energy?A) The amount of energy that a system can exchange with its surroundings.B) A thermodynamic potential that measures the maximum reversible work that may be performed by a system at constant temperature and pressure.C) The total energy of a system.D) The measure of disorder in a system.8. What is a heat reservoir?A) A device for measuring the heat content of a system.B) An infinite heat source or sink that can supply or absorb heat without undergoing any temperature change.C) A system in thermodynamic equilibrium.D) A substance with high specific heat capacity.9. What is the Triple Point of a substance?A) The critical temperature of a substance.B) The temperature at which a gas turns into a liquid.C) The temperature and pressure at which the solid, liquid, and gas phases of a substance coexist in equilibrium.D) The boiling point of a substance at standard pressure.
