Font size conditions is the (limiting) ratio of the small increment
of pressure to the cubical compression produced.

Thus if the pressure rises from MP to M'P', or from p
to p â€” Ap, then the elasticity is

,. â€”Ap dp

Av/v av

a positive quantity because p increases as v diminishes.

On the diagram,

PIi = Av,BP'=-A2J,
and the elasticity is

lb p|^ = NP tan NP V= NV,

if the tangent at P meets ON in V.

Thus along an isothermal hyperbola (Â§ 198)
NV= ON, so that the elasticity is p.

nfyip = constant,
NV^y . ON, and the elasticity is yp (Â§ 233).

516 THE FIRST AND SECOND LAWS

The work done in expanding to the volume v or OM
is represented by the area EMPF; and if FP is the
adiabatic curve of a perfect gas, this work is (Â§ 233)
'P^Va-pv _-r fia-0

- = â€” JX IT,

y-1 y-1

I'O

reducing for an isothermal curve along which y = 1 to
pv log vjv^ = RQ log pjp.

423. As the piston moves from E to M, and the point
F follows along the curve FP, a certain quantity H units
of heat is absorbed (or given out) by the gas, which
depends upon the shape of the curve FP, upon the
characteristic equation of the gas (Â§ 198), and upon the
change of the internal energy of the gas.

As the piston moves from M' to M, suppose that dH
units of heat are absorbed, and that the change of inter-
nal energy is dE heat units ; then, according to the First
Law of Thermodynamics,

where dW denotes the number of units of work performed
in the motion from M' to M\ in this case dW^fdv.

It is beyond the scope of the present treatise to discuss
the Second Law of Thermodynamics and Thomson's
Absolute Scale of Temperature ; it will be sufficient
for our purposes to assume that the absolute scale of
temperature is given practically by the indications of
an Air or Hydrogen Thermometer (Â§ 221) obeying the
Characteristic Equation (Â§ 198),
pv = RQ.

Thus in the experiments on the Absolute Dilatation of
Mercury (Â§ 164) an air thermometer must be employed,
as the mercury thermometer could not detect variations
in the coefficient of expansion.

OF THERMODYNAMICS. 517

It is assumed also that the Second Law of Thermo-
dynamics is embodied in the equation

dH=ed4>, (2)

where is a certain function, called the entropy ; then

dE=dHâ€”A'pdv = 9d(p-A2Jdv, (3)

embodying the First and Second Laws.

The internal energy E depends only on the state of
the gas as given by p, v, 6, its pressure, volume, and
temperature, connected by the Characteristic Equation,

F{p,v,e)= - 0;
so that a change in E is independent of the intermediate
states; or, in other words, dE is a perfect differential,
and so also is d(f), according to the Second Law.

The First and Second Laws of Thermodynamics are
thus expressed by the relations

/dH=AW, /dH/e = 0,
W denoting the work done, and the integrals being
taken round a closed cycle in which there is no escape
of heat by conduction ; the quantity dH/6 is sometimes
called the heat-weight of the heat dH.

If H units of heat pass from a body at a temperature
02 to another body at a lower temperature 6^, the entropy
of the first body falls HjO^ and of the second rises H/G^ ;
so that the entropy of the system rises

1 1^

\0^ 02-

The entropy is thus unchanged if no heat passes
except between bodies at the same temperature; but
conduction of heat between bodies of different temper-
ature raises the entropy, and the entropy thus tends
to a maximum.

518 THERMODYNAMICAL RELATIONS.

424. Of the four quantities f, v, 6, <{>, two only are
independent ; and any pair may be taken as independent
variables.

Prof Willard Gibbs selects v and as variables, so
that from (3), with Clausius's notation for partial differ-
ential coefficients,

But denoting by x, y any pair of independent variables

This proves that if the plane of the {p, v) diagram is
covered by isothermal lines, for which Q is constant, and
isentropic or adiabatio lines, for which ^ is constant,
then integrating round any closed cycle,

ffdQd(^ = AffdfdbV = A times the area of the cycle ;
or the area of the cycle is JffdQdf.

425. A cycle a^y^ which is bounded by two iso-

thermals 0j and Q^, and two adiabatics 0j and 02' ^^

called a Oarnbt cycle, fig. 107 ; and it thus encloses an area

J(02-0i)(0,-0i) (5)

THE GARNOT CYCLE. 519

With Q and ^ as variables, the Carnot cycle on the
(0, <f) diagram is a rectangle.

Starting from the point a{Qy 0^) and moving along the
side a/3, the entropy ^^ is constant, and no heat is
absorbed or given out in this compression.

In expanding from ,8 {Q^, (j>i) along ^y, the tempera-
ture 02 is constant, and the heat absorbed is thus

^2 = ^2(<p2 â€” 'Pi)-

In expanding from y (O^, (j)^ to 8 along y8, the en-
tropy 02 is constant, and no heat is gained or lost.

From Â§ (0j, 02) back to a along Sa, the temperature 0^
is constant, and the entropy changes from 02 to 0^, so
that the heat given out is

iri=0i(02-0i).

The heat which has disappeared in completing the
Carnot cycle is

^2-^l=(02-0l)(^2-0l)

= A times the area of the cycle, or the work done,
in accordance with the First Law of Thermodynamics;
also the heat-weights,

The efficiency of the cycle, defined as the ratio of the
heat converted into work to the heat absorbed, is thus,
H^ â€” H^ 6o â€” 9-i ,n\

-^ET^^ ('^>

Carnot assumed that the efficiency of an engine working
in this cycle between the temperatures 0^ and 02, was

0(02-01);
and he supposed that G was constant ; but we see now
that 0, called Carnot's function, is the reciprocal of the
absolute temperature of the source of heat.

520 REVERSIBILITY OF THE CARA^OT CYCLE.

The Carnot cycle a/3yJ is reversible ; that is, if described
in the reverse direction aSy^, as in a refrigerating
machine, the heat H^ absorbed at temperature 0j is
given out as heat H^ at a higher temperature Q^, at the.
expense of the work represented by the area of the cycle.

Carnot's principle asserts that the efficiency of a
reversible cycle is a maximum ; for if it were possible
to obtain a greater efficiency by another arrangement,
this could be made to drive the Carnot cycle backwards
and thus create energy, and realise " Perpetual Motion."

Thus a thermodynamic engine, for instance a low
pressure engine, working between the extreme tempera-
tures of the freezing and boiling points, 0Â°C and 100Â° C,
gives away at least 273 out of 373 units of heat to the
condenser ; so that its efficiency falls short of 0'27.

426. By taking x, y to represent any pair of the
variables p, v, 6, (jt, we obtain various thermodynamical
relations ; thus with independent variables

THERMODYNAMICAL RELATIONS.

521

These relations are proved geometrically in Maxwell's
Theory of Heat, by taking the Carnot cycle a^yS so
small that it may be considered a parallelogram ABGD â–
and now an inspection of fig. 108 shows that the area
of the parallelogram, or

JA6A,p = AK.Ak = AL.Al^AM.A')n = AN.A'n.

Fig. 107.

Fig. 108.

Then the relation (iii.) is equivalent to

(iii.)

AK
A0'

for AK is the dilation of v at constant pressure, while
Ak is â€” Aâ€žp, is the diminution of pressure corresponding
to the increment A<p along the isothermal AD.

Similarly the relations (iv.), (v.), (vi.) are equivalent to

(iv.) ^ = J^i. with AL=A^v, Al = A^p;

(v.) 4?=J-^, with AM=A.p, Am:

428. Applying these formulas to air, for which

pv = R6,

then M = ^=P, M=_^=_ÂŁ;

and Cp â€” Cy=:AR= R/J.

Also Cp = ycâ€ž, where y is 1'4, about (Â§ 228); so that
_ yAR _ AR

''p-y-V ''"-y-r

With British units, J =119, R=5SS (Â§ 200); so that
^i? = 0-068, c^ = 0-238, câ€ž= 0-170;
and the numbers are the same with metric units and the
Centigrade scale; these numbers were obtained in this
manner by Rankine in 1850, before they had been de-
termined experimentally.

If we divide the S.H. Cv by the s.v. v of the gas, we
obtain the thermal capacity per unit volume; this is
found to be very nearly the same number for all gases
at the same temperature.

The numerical value of y is determined most accurately
from the observed velocity of sound (Â§ 228) ; another
mode of determination, due to Clement and Desormes,
is to compress air into a closed vessel, and to observe
the pressure p, when the temperature 6 is the same as
that of the atmosphere.

A stopcock is then opened, and suddenly closed when
the air ceases to rush out; and it is assumed that the
enclosed air has expanded adiabatically to atmospheric
pressure p.

After a time the air inside will regain the surrounding
temperature 6, and its pressure p^ is again observed;
so that 02> the temperature at the instant of closing the
stopcock, is given by 0^ = Oplp^-

OF A PERFECT GAS. 525

If V denotes the volume of the vessel, then the air left
inside, at pressure p^ and temperature 6, originally
occupied a volume Vpjp^ at pressure p^^; and in ex-
panding adiabatieally to volume V it assumed the atmo-
spheric pressure p ; so that

py^=Pi{ypiiPiV> or pjp-=(pjp^)-y,

429. Taking 6 and v as variables with a perfect gas,

dH= edd> = câ€žde + e^'^dv
av

= c^dd + A6 -Za^v = c^dd + Apdv,

so that we may put

E = câ€že = ABe/{y-l).

Thus the internal energy of the gas, in heat units S, in
the state represented by the point a in the diagram of
fig. 107, is A times the area of the indefinitely extended
adiabatic curve aaSv, cut ofi" by the ordinate aa.

The increase in internal energy E in passing from the
state a to the state j8 by any path a^ is thus A times
the area vaah^v ; and this area is made up of aa6/3, repre-
senting the work done in compressing the gas from a to
/3, and of va^v, representing the mechanical equivalent
of the heat supplied in going from a to /3.

526 EXAMPLES.

"With Q and <p as variables,

(c^ - câ€ž)log ^ = ^ - 00 - Cp log 5- ;

so that the isometrics and isobars of a perfect gas are
logarithmic curves on the (6, 0) diagram.

In the Carnot cycle a^yS for a perfect gas, for instance
in an ideal gas engine, the work done in compressing the
gas adiabatically from a to /3 is

R{02-O^)l(y-n

and this work is therefore given out again in the adia-
batic expansion from" y to S, so that the areas aah^ and
