Let us look at the two portions of air as one single system. Since this system is contained in a thermally insulated vessel, no heat exchange is involved in the process. That is, total heat transfer for the combined system Q = 0

Moreover, this combined system does not perform mechanical work either. The walls of the containers are rigid and there are no pistons etc to be pushed, looking at the total system, we know A = 0.

Hence, internal energy of the combined system docs not change in the process. Initially energy of the combined system is equal to the sum of internal energies of the two portions of air :

FAQs on Irodov Solutions: The First Law of Thermodynamics: Heat Capacity - 1 - Physics Class 11 - NEET

1. What is the first law of thermodynamics?
Ans. The first law of thermodynamics, also known as the law of energy conservation, states that energy cannot be created or destroyed in an isolated system. It can only be transferred or transformed from one form to another.
2. What is heat capacity?
Ans. Heat capacity is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a substance by a certain amount. It is defined as the ratio of the amount of heat absorbed or released to the corresponding change in temperature.
3. How is heat capacity related to the first law of thermodynamics?
Ans. Heat capacity is directly related to the first law of thermodynamics as it is a measure of the ability of a substance to absorb or release heat energy. The first law of thermodynamics states that the change in internal energy of a system is equal to the heat added to the system minus the work done by the system. Heat capacity helps in quantifying this heat transfer process.
4. What is specific heat capacity?
Ans. Specific heat capacity, also known as specific heat, is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of a substance by a certain amount. It is defined as the ratio of the amount of heat absorbed or released to the change in temperature and mass of the substance.
5. How is specific heat capacity different from heat capacity?
Ans. Specific heat capacity and heat capacity are related but different concepts. Heat capacity is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of an entire substance, regardless of its mass. On the other hand, specific heat capacity is the amount of heat energy required to raise the temperature of a unit mass of a substance. Specific heat capacity takes into account the mass of the substance, providing a more precise measure of its heat-absorbing or releasing capabilities.
