A Potpourri of Thermodynamics Questions
In this thermodynamics activity, students match six definitions with the proper terms on topics related to heat and the principles of thermodynamics. Students then solve fourteen problems about temperature changes in reactions, free energy, entropy, and the laws of thermodynamics.

AP Chemistry Topic 9: Thermodynamics, Review, Part II
This comprehensive worksheet has chemistry apprentices perform calculations for several thermodynamic reactions. They will work with moles, limiting reactants, free energy, entropy, and enthalpy. Practice makes perfect, and that is what will result when you assign this as homework.

Sal provides two definitions for entropy: the thermodynamic definition and the mathematical definition. Entropy and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics are the focuses of this chemistry video. The law states that the change in entropy in the universe, when any process is undergone, is always greater than, or equal to, zero.

The Laws of Thermodynamics
Students investigate the concept of a thermodynamic system. The difference between a state and phase is defined as part of the experimental explanations given in writing. Students conduct experiments to demonstrate laws of science like Charles Law.

Thermodynamic Entropy Definition Clarification
In the previous video, Sal introduced students to entropy and the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. An example he used had a couple of points that were factual, but not clear to many students. In this video, he goes over those points again in an attempt to make them clearer.

2nd Law of Thermodynamics and Heat Flow
Students experiment with the Second Law of Thermodynamics. In this Second Law of Thermodynamics lesson, students experiment with the balance and flow of heat. They discuss how heat moves and apply it to how homes should be insulated.

Energy and Metabolism
This four-page worksheet queries young biologists about the process of metabolism in the human body. They describe types of energy, laws of thermodynamics, and chemical reactions related to the processing of energy. Plenty of space is provided for learners to write out detailed answers beneath each question.

Energy Transfer (Heat)
The pages of this resource are in landscape view and ready-made to use as slides in a presentation on energy transfer in your high school physical science course. Begin with pertinent vocabulary and finish with an explanation of the first law of thermodynamics using a graph of the heating curve.

Efficiency of Energy Conservation
Three versions of the same lesson are explained in this writeup intended to investigate the energy conversion efficiency of your school's photovoltaic system. The first requirement then, is access to a solar system. You also need ammeters, voltmeters, incandescent light fixtures, Vernier units, graphing calculators, or calculator-based lab units depending on which alternative you choose to use.
