We assume that C does not depend on the temperature and that the volumes of the blocks are constant. We put A and B in contact while maintaining the ensemble thermally insulated. 1. What is the change in the internal energy of each of the blocks? What is the total energy change? What is the ﬁnal temperature? 2. What is the entropy change of each of the blocks? What is the total entropy change? 3. We construct a heat engine which uses the two blocks as heat sources. What is the maximum work that can be obtained?

What is the ﬁnal temperature? 2. What is the entropy change of each of the blocks? What is the total entropy change? 3. We construct a heat engine which uses the two blocks as heat sources. What is the maximum work that can be obtained? What is the ﬁnal temperature of the two blocks in this case? 5 Stability conditions 1. Establish the following relations at constant N ∂µ ∂V ∂T ∂V V ∂P N ∂V T T ∂P =− CV ∂ T = T S V 2. An experimentalist claims to have found a material with the following properties (i) ∂P ∂V <0 T (ii) ∂P ∂T >0 (iii) V ∂µ ∂V <0 T (iv) ∂T ∂V >0 S Which of the relations above is compatible with the stability conditions?

15). The wire AD, length , can be moved while kept parallel to BC allowing the ﬁlm to be stretched. The modulus of the force f , applied in the positive x direction, needed to keep AD ﬁxed is σ , where σ is the surface tension. 1. Write the T dS equation for this problem. 2. We deﬁne the speciﬁc heat at constant length as usual Cx = T ∂S ∂T x Express the partial derivatives of the energy E in the variables (T, x) in terms of C x , T and the partial derivatives of the surface tension σ . 3. 16 K.
