This is the homepage of the University of Illinois at Chicago, Thermodynamics Research Laboratory, (UCI-TRL).
Allows you to perform gas law experiments including density / molecular weight variations. A very good site for demonstrating variables in the gas laws.
A definition of the term heat with links to related topics such as the first law of thermodynamics. Includes examples and questions.
A general description of the second law with ideas of entropy and quotes from some scientists. Non Mathematical description. The site also includes recent book reviews
Tthe Feynman-Smoluchowski Rachet, also known as the Brownian Ratchet, was an early attempt at defying the laws of thermodynamics and achieving perpetual motion. It failed, but it was an entertaining ...
Useful simulations (applets) on various Physics topics including mechanics, dynamics, waves, thermodynamics, electromagnetics, light, and optics with links to other sites.
Ludwig Boltzmann (1844 - 1906) work related to the Second Law of Thermodynamics which he derived from the principles of mechanics in the 1890s.
An adiabatic process is one in which no heat is gained or lost by the system. The first law of thermodynamics with Q=0 shows that all the change in internal energy is in the form of work done.
A set of links to educational sites about classical and quantum thermodynamics and related mathematical techniques
The site gives links to sites holding data tables, and calculating software for chemical engineering, with emphasis on thermodynamics.
