Ch 6: Praxis General Science: Thermodynamics

Watch the tutorial videos and complete the self-assessment quizzes in this chapter so that you can accurately answer related Praxis General Science examination questions. The chapter consists of definitions, examples and equations related to thermodynamics.

Praxis General Science: Thermodynamics - Chapter Summary

This chapter on thermodynamics will enable you to brush up on thermodynamics before you sit for the Praxis General Science examination. Study the animated video lessons in order to identify the four phase changes of matter, understand the relationship between temperature and heat, and solve equations involving linear thermal expansion. The lessons will explain how electricity is created from energy, and they'll remind you of what happens during isothermic and adiabatic processes. When you've watched the chapter's videos, you might have the ability to:

• Define heat, temperature and thermal expansion
• Explain the concept of a heating curve
• Illustrate temperature and heat changes to water
• Provide examples of endothermic and exothermic reactions
• Understand the laws of thermodynamics and the zeroth law of thermodynamics
• Describe how the Carnot Cycle works

Teachers present these topics in easy-to-understand language, and you may email our experts for help with your questions about thermodynamics. Whether you'd rather learn visually or study primarily by reading, this chapter can help you prepare for the Praxis General Science examination. Learn from written transcripts in addition to the narrated, animated videos. Worksheets and quizzes are also included in the chapter, and they can be used as extra study tools when printed out.
