In symbols, P loop1X ¼ 0. This holds not just for the internal energy but for any state function X. calories). But not all heat is work, and internal energy will be heat or work only under certain circumstances. Say again? The internal energy is the energy within the system, U. For our purposes U will represent only those kinds of energy that can be modified by a chemical process – translational, vibrational, rotational, bonding, and non-bonding energies. A particle in a system may translate from A to B, a bond may rotate and vibrate, a bond may break and reform, and particles may interact non-covalently, for instance, by electrostatics.

Simple! In Chapter 1 we touched on how temperature is a measure of the average speed of molecules in a gas. And now that we have the Zeroth Law, we are free to use the concept of temperature as much as we like. The First Law is a conservation law: energy can be changed from one form to another, but in all its transformations energy is neither created nor destroyed (Fig. 2). There is a close resemblance to the conservation of matter, according to which the total amount of matter in a chemical reaction is a constant.
