* Calculate efficiency and maximum efficiency for heat engines * Describe how a study of heat at the microscopic level explains flow of thermal energy from hot to cold * Recognize entropy as a property that quantifies the probability of a macrostate occurring, and that high entropy means a disordered state and a dispersal (a lack of concentration) of energy * State qualitatively the change in entropy accompanying common energy changes, such as temperature changes, phase changes, and conversion of energy from some other form to thermal energy * Recite and apply the second law of thermodynamics * Recognize that macroscopic energy flow and change arises from uneven distribution of energy, so distributed energy (a condition of high entropy) cannot be used to perform useful work.

* Calculate efficiency and maximum efficiency for heat engines * Describe how a study of heat at the microscopic level explains flow of thermal energy from hot to cold * Recognize entropy as a property that quantifies the probability of a macrostate occurring, and that high entropy means a disordered state and a dispersal (a lack of concentration) of energy * State qualitatively the change in entropy accompanying common energy changes, such as temperature changes, phase changes, and conversion of energy from some other form to thermal energy * Recite and apply the second law of thermodynamics * Recognize that macroscopic energy flow and change arises from uneven distribution of energy, so distributed energy (a condition of high entropy) cannot be used to perform useful work.
