# Some helpful Tips for Thermodynamics

Thermodynamics is a scoring chapter in JEE physics. Here are some Some helpful Tips for Thermodynamics to solve the problem correctly and quickly

Tip 1. Always make sure you Heat(Q) ,Internal Energy(U) & Work(W) with correct sign in equation
?U=Q-W

W is positive when work done by the system(Increase in Volume)
W is negative when work done on the system(Decrease in Volume)
Q is positive when heat is given to the system
Q is negative when heat is taken from the system

Tip 2.  Work done in a cycle is equal to the area enclosed on the PV diagram

Tip 3.  Change in Internal energy is zero for a cycle
So Net Heat=Net Work done

Tip 4.All Bodies emit radiation at all temperature.Radiation emitted are of different frequencies.Frequency at which most radiation are emitted are directly proportional to Temperature of the body.

Tip 5. Isothermal Process
PV=constant
VdP+PdV=0
-VdP/dV=P
Now Bulk Modulus= -VdP/dV
So Bi=P
