Internal energy increases whenever heat is added to a system. The same applies to the external work done by the system.

When heat is added to or is absorbed by a system, its internal energy increases. The amount of external work a system can do essentially refers to the amount of energy it can transfer to something else. So when internal energy increases, so does the external work done by the system.

Internal energy is the sum of the randomly distributed microscopic potential energy and kinetic energy of the molecules that make up the system. The first law of thermodynamics states that: "The internal energy of a system is a function of its state. Any increase in the internal energy of a system is equal to the sum of the heat supplied to the system and the work done on the system." The first law of thermodynamics is a direct consequence of the principle of conservation of energy.

there are a number of ways: you could put that system into direct thermal contact with another system of a higher temperature, which would result in a conduction of heat energy from the higher energy system to the lower one. Or you could fire radiation at the system which the system absorbs and thus its internal energy is raised. I think you might increase the energy if you decrease the volume under pressure, because the temperature will increase and you will have done work on the system, hence increasing it internal energy. Like wise, if you spray a deodorant can, it comes out cold, because the compressed gas has done work on the atmosphere, and used up internal energy, hence it feels cold.

It helps to think of work as "transfer of energy". If you do energy on a system, its energy content increases. If the system does work on something else, the system's energy content decreases.

* First law of thermodynamics, about the conservation of energy: : :: The change in the internal energy of a closed thermodynamic system is equal to the sum of the amount of heat energy supplied to the system and the work done on the system. --from Wikipedia

No. The temperature doesn't change in an isothermal process. However, the total change in heat, change in internal energy, or work done will probably not be zero.

It is change in internal energy. If the volume of the system remains unchanged (isochoric process)then the heat given to the system is entirely utilized to increase the internal energy of that system. It is to be noted that no pressure-voulme work is done in such processes.

The energy created as a result of the internal combustion equals the amount of energy that was needed to move the automobile. See Below. The increase in the internal energy of a system is equal to the amount of energy added by heating the system, minus the amount lost as a result of the work done by the system on its surroundings. aka Conservation of Energy.

remains constant From Rafaelrz. When a simple closed system does work and no heat is added, the temperature of the system will drop. This is because the work is done at the expense of his internal energy, which is thermal energy.

The heat supplied to a system can increase its internal energy if no work is extracted from the system. If any work is done by the system, then the increase in internal energy will be less than the heat supplied to the system. The thermodynamic variable defined by the zeroeth law is Temperature.

If a reaction is carried out in constant temperature and constant volume no work is done and heat exchanged with surroundings is equal to the internal energy.

Energy is the potential to do some work. If there is work done on a system, this work done is stored as potential energy of the system. If the system in motion, it should have kinetic energy. Hence total energy of the system PE+KE

The term "heat" is generally a vague and less desirable word. Heat transfer (delta Q) = delta U (change in internal energy of a system) + Work done by the system. This is part of the First Law of Thermodynamics. Whereas Thermal Energy is a form of internal energy caused by molecules in a substance that is in thermal equilibrium.

In adiabatic process heat is neither added nor removed from the system. So the work done by the system (expansion) in adiabatic process will result in decrease of internal energy of that system (From I st law). As internal energy is directly proportional to the change in temperature there will be temperature drop in an adiabatic process.

The first law of thermodynamics requires that energy input must equal energy output plus energy accumulation. In this case that translates to; 430 J = 120 J + (internal energy change) so Internal energy change = 430 J - 120 J = +310 J (the internal energy increased by 310 Joules)

The first law of thermodynamics states that: "The internal energy of a system is a function of its state. Any increase in the internal energy of a system is equal to the sum of the heat supplied to the system and the work done on the system." In equations, this is stated as: DU = DQ + DW where DU is the INCREASE in internal energy DQ is the heat SUPPLIED DW is the work done ON the system So, if heat is lost by the system, it means that DQ is negative and if work is done by the system, it means that DW is negative. The best way to answer thermodynamics questions involving the first law is to think logically about what calculations should be made. If you do this, you will never make mistakes about signs.

No. See the first law of thermodynamics, which states that the change in the internal energy of a closed thermodynamic system is equal to the sum of the amount of heat energy supplied to or removed from the system and the work done on or by the system or we can say " In an isolated system the heat is constant".

Enthalpy mathematically is the sum of the internal energy and work done in a process.internal energy is the sum of the kinetic energy,potential energy,vibrational energies etc

because in adiabatic process heat absorbed is zero. and the work is done by internal energy. so internal energy decreases.we know that temperature is directly related with internal energy

A charging system test is done to check the internal voltage regulator. It can be done at any auto parts place.

The first law of thermodynamics states that: DU = DQ + DW where DU is the increase in the internal energy of the gas DQ is the heat supplied to the system and DW is the work done ON the system For an adiabatic process, DQ = 0 Therefore, DU = DW It can be thus easily seen that for the internal to increase (DU +ve), DW must be positive, that is work has to be done on the system (in this case the ideal gas). Hence, the gas should be compressed.
