Zeroth Law: If system x = system y & system y = system z, then system x = system z. (Trans­itive)
First Law: Internal energy(ΔU) of an isolated system is constant. No heat lost, only transf­erred.
Second Law: The entropy of any isolated system always increases.
Third Law: The entropy of a system approaches a constant value as the temper­ature approaches absolute zero.
Cyclic Rule: (dP/­d­T)­vd­T/­dV­)(­dV­/P)T= -1


Adiabatic: No transfer of heat or matter
Diathe­rmal: Heat allowed to transfer, no matter transfer. Can transfer energy in the form of work
Enthal­py(ΔH): Amount of heat content used or released in a system at constant pressure
Irreve­rsible: A process that cannot return both the system and the surrou­ndings to their original condit­ions.

Internal Energy (ΔU)

Constant Volume
ΔU=CvΔT = qv
Adiabatic, Reversible
ΔU= w = n(Cpm­-R)ΔT = nCvmΔT

Enthalpy (ΔH) (State Fxn)

Constant Pressure
ΔH = qp
Constant Volume
ΔH= nCpmΔT + VΔP
Even More General
dH= (dH/­d­P)T dT + (dH/­d­T)P dP
Liquids & Solids
(dH/­d­P)T = V(1-Tβ)
Constant Pressure, closed system
ΔH= (Uf+­PV­f)­-(U­i­+P­iVi)
ΔH= n∫Cpm(T) dT = nCpmΔT
