NCERT Grade 11 Chemistry Chapter 6, Thermodynamics is from Chemistry Part 1 and belongs to Unit 6. Unit 6 along with Unit 4, Unit 5, Unit 6 and Unit 7 holds a weightage of 21 marks. In this chapter, the students will be introduced to Thermodynamics, its meaning, application, uses and applications. This chapter will help the students to build a foundation for Grade 12 and further competitive exams.
With the help of chapter, Thermodynamics, the students will be able to explain the terms : system and surroundings; discriminate between close, open and isolated systems; explain internal energy, work and heat; state first law of thermodynamics and express it mathematically; calculate energy changes as work and heat contributions in chemical systems; explain state functions: U, H. correlate ∆U and ∆H; measure experimentally ∆U and ∆H; define standard states for ∆H; calculate enthalpy changes for various types of reactions; state and apply Hess’s law of constant heat summation; differentiate between extensive and intensive properties; define spontaneous and nonspontaneous processes; explain entropy as a thermodynamic state function and apply it for spontaneity; explain Gibbs energy change (∆G); and establish relationship between ∆G and spontaneity, ∆G and equilibrium constant.
NCERT Grade 11 Chemistry Chapter 6, Thermodynamics will teach the students topics such as Thermodynamic Terms, The System and the Surroundings, Types of the System, The State of the System, The Internal Energy as a State Function, Applications, Work, Enthalpy, Measurement of Du and Dh: Calorimetry, Enthalpy Change, Drh of a Reaction – Reaction Enthalpy, Enthalpies for Different Types of Reactions, Spontaneity, Gibbs Energy Change and Equilibrium.
