**Thermodynamics** is a branch of physics that deals with heat, work, and temperature, and their relation to energy, radiation, and physical properties of matter. The behavior of these quantities is governed by the four laws of thermodynamics which convey a quantitative description using measurable macroscopic physical quantities, but may be explained in terms of microscopic constituents by statistical mechanics. Thermodynamics applies to a wide variety of topics in science and engineering, especially physical chemistry, chemical engineering and mechanical engineering, but also in other complex fields such as meteorology.

热力学是物理学的一个分支，研究热和温度，以及它们与能量、功、辐射和物质性质的关系。这些量的行为是由4个热力学定律控制的，它们用可测量的宏观物理量传递了一个定量描述，但是可以用微观成分来解释统计力学。热力学适用于科学和工程中的各种各样的课题，尤其是物理化学、化学工程和机械工程，但也适用于气象学这样复杂的领域。

Historically, thermodynamics developed out of a desire to increase the efficiency of early steam engines, particularly through the work of French physicist Nicolas Léonard Sadi Carnot (1824) who believed that engine efficiency was the key that could help France win the Napoleonic Wars.^{[1]} Scots-Irish physicist Lord Kelvin was the first to formulate a concise definition of thermodynamics in 1854^{[2]} which stated, "Thermo-dynamics is the subject of the relation of heat to forces acting between contiguous parts of bodies, and the relation of heat to electrical agency."

“热力学的主题是热量与物体相邻部分之间作用力的关系，以及热量与电能的关系。”

The initial application of thermodynamics to mechanical heat engines was quickly extended to the study of chemical compounds and chemical reactions. Chemical thermodynamics studies the nature of the role of entropy in the process of chemical reactions and has provided the bulk of expansion and knowledge of the field.^{[3]}^{[4]}^{[5]}^{[6]}^{[7]}^{[8]}^{[9]}^{[10]}^{[11]} Other formulations of thermodynamics emerged. Statistical thermodynamics, or statistical mechanics, concerns itself with statistical predictions of the collective motion of particles from their microscopic behavior. In 1909, Constantin Carathéodory presented a purely mathematical approach in an axiomatic formulation, a description often referred to as *geometrical thermodynamics*.

热力学的其他公式出现了。统计热力学，或称统计力学热力学，从微观角度对粒子的集体运动进行统计预测。在1909年，康斯坦丁·卡拉西奥多里提出了一个纯粹的数学方法在一个公理化的公式，一个描述通常被称为几何热力学。

## Introduction

引言

A description of any thermodynamic system employs the four laws of thermodynamics that form an axiomatic basis. The first law specifies that energy can be exchanged between physical systems as heat and work.^{[12]} The second law defines the existence of a quantity called entropy, that describes the direction, thermodynamically, that a system can evolve and quantifies the state of order of a system and that can be used to quantify the useful work that can be extracted from the system.^{[13]}

The second law defines the existence of a quantity called entropy, that describes the direction, thermodynamically, that a system can evolve and quantifies the state of order of a system and that can be used to quantify the useful work that can be extracted from the system.

任何热力学系统的描述都采用了构成公理基础的4个热力学定律。第一定律规定能量可以在物理系统之间以热和功的形式进行交换。第二定律定义了一个叫做熵的量的存在，这个量描述了一个系统可以进化和量化一个系统的有序状态的方向，可以用来量化可以从系统中提取的有用功。

In thermodynamics, interactions between large ensembles of objects are studied and categorized. Central to this are the concepts of the thermodynamic *system* and its *surroundings*. A system is composed of particles, whose average motions define its properties, and those properties are in turn related to one another through equations of state. Properties can be combined to express internal energy and thermodynamic potentials, which are useful for determining conditions for equilibrium and spontaneous processes.

在热力学中，研究和分类了物体大系综之间的相互作用。其核心是热力学系统及其周围环境的概念。一个系统是由粒子组成的，粒子的平均运动决定了它的性质，而这些性质又通过状态方程彼此相关。性质可以结合起来表示内能和热力学势，这对于确定平衡和自发过程的条件是有用的。

With these tools, thermodynamics can be used to describe how systems respond to changes in their environment. This can be applied to a wide variety of topics in science and engineering, such as engines, phase transitions, chemical reactions, transport phenomena, and even black holes. The results of thermodynamics are essential for other fields of physics and for chemistry, chemical engineering, corrosion engineering, aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, cell biology, biomedical engineering, materials science, and economics, to name a few.^{[14]}^{[15]}

## History

历史

The history of thermodynamics as a scientific discipline generally begins with Otto von Guericke who, in 1650, built and designed the world's first vacuum pump and demonstrated a vacuum using his Magdeburg hemispheres. Guericke was driven to make a vacuum in order to disprove Aristotle's long-held supposition that 'nature abhors a vacuum'. Shortly after Guericke, the English physicist and chemist Robert Boyle had learned of Guericke's designs and, in 1656, in coordination with English scientist Robert Hooke, built an air pump.^{[17]} Using this pump, Boyle and Hooke noticed a correlation between pressure, temperature, and volume. In time, Boyle's Law was formulated, which states that pressure and volume are inversely proportional. Then, in 1679, based on these concepts, an associate of Boyle's named Denis Papin built a steam digester, which was a closed vessel with a tightly fitting lid that confined steam until a high pressure was generated.

热力学史作为一门科学学科通常始于1650年的奥托·冯·格里克，他建造并设计了世界上第一台真空泵，并用他的马德堡半球展示了真空。格里克被迫制造一个真空，以反驳亚里士多德长期以来的假设，即“自然憎恶真空”。在格里克之后不久，英国物理学家和化学家罗伯特 · 波义耳听说了格里克的设计，并在1656年与英国科学家罗伯特 · 胡克合作制造了一个空气泵。波义耳和胡克利用这台泵，注意到了压力、温度和体积之间的关系。随着时间的推移，波义耳定律被公式化了，它指出压强和体积成反比。然后，在1679年，基于这些概念，波义耳的一位名叫丹尼斯 · 帕平的合伙人建造了一个蒸汽消化器，这是一个封闭的容器，有一个紧密的盖子，将蒸汽封闭起来，直到产生高压。

Later designs implemented a steam release valve that kept the machine from exploding. By watching the valve rhythmically move up and down, Papin conceived of the idea of a piston and a cylinder engine. He did not, however, follow through with his design. Nevertheless, in 1697, based on Papin's designs, engineer Thomas Savery built the first engine, followed by Thomas Newcomen in 1712. Although these early engines were crude and inefficient, they attracted the attention of the leading scientists of the time.

后来的设计实现了一个蒸汽释放阀，以防止机器爆炸。通过观察阀门有节奏地上下运动，帕平构思了活塞和汽缸发动机的概念。然而，他并没有坚持他的设计。然而，在1697年，根据帕平的设计，工程师托马斯 · 萨维里制造了第一台发动机，随后在1712年托马斯 · 纽科门制造了第一台发动机。虽然这些早期的发动机粗糙和低效，他们吸引了当时的主要科学家的注意。

The fundamental concepts of heat capacity and latent heat, which were necessary for the development of thermodynamics, were developed by Professor Joseph Black at the University of Glasgow, where James Watt was employed as an instrument maker. Black and Watt performed experiments together, but it was Watt who conceived the idea of the external condenser which resulted in a large increase in steam engine efficiency.^{[18]} Drawing on all the previous work led Sadi Carnot, the "father of thermodynamics", to publish *Reflections on the Motive Power of Fire* (1824), a discourse on heat, power, energy and engine efficiency. The book outlined the basic energetic relations between the Carnot engine, the Carnot cycle, and **motive power**. It marked the start of thermodynamics as a modern science.^{[10]}

热容量和潜热的基本概念是热力学发展所必需的，是由格拉斯哥大学的 Joseph Black 教授提出来的，James Watt 是那里的一个仪器制造商。布莱克和瓦特一起进行实验，但是瓦特提出了外部冷凝器的概念，从而大大提高了蒸汽机的效率。根据以前所有的工作，“热力学之父”萨迪 · 卡诺发表了《论火的动力(1824年) ，一篇关于热、动力、能源和发动机效率的论文。这本书概述了卡诺发动机、卡诺循环和动力之间的基本能量关系。它标志着热力学作为一门现代科学的开始。

The first thermodynamic textbook was written in 1859 by William Rankine, originally trained as a physicist and a civil and mechanical engineering professor at the University of Glasgow.^{[19]} The first and second laws of thermodynamics emerged simultaneously in the 1850s, primarily out of the works of William Rankine, Rudolf Clausius, and William Thomson (Lord Kelvin).^{[20]}

During the years 1873–76 the American mathematical physicist Josiah Willard Gibbs published a series of three papers, the most famous being *On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous Substances*,^{[3]} in which he showed how thermodynamic processes, including chemical reactions, could be graphically analyzed, by studying the energy, entropy, volume, temperature and pressure of the thermodynamic system in such a manner, one can determine if a process would occur spontaneously.^{[21]} Also Pierre Duhem in the 19th century wrote about chemical thermodynamics.^{[4]} During the early 20th century, chemists such as Gilbert N. Lewis, Merle Randall,^{[5]} and E. A. Guggenheim^{[6]}^{[7]} applied the mathematical methods of Gibbs to the analysis of chemical processes.

热力学系统的研究已经发展成为几个相关的分支，每个分支都使用不同的基本模型作为理论或实验基础，或者将这些原理应用于不同类型的系统。

### Classical thermodynamics

### Classical thermodynamics

经典热力学

Classical thermodynamics is the description of the states of thermodynamic systems at near-equilibrium, that uses macroscopic, measurable properties. It is used to model exchanges of energy, work and heat based on the laws of thermodynamics. The qualifier *classical* reflects the fact that it represents the first level of understanding of the subject as it developed in the 19th century and describes the changes of a system in terms of macroscopic empirical (large scale, and measurable) parameters. A microscopic interpretation of these concepts was later provided by the development of *statistical mechanics*.

经典热力学是对近平衡态热力学系统状态的描述，它使用宏观的、可测量的性质。它被用来模拟能量、功和热量的交换，基于热力学定律。经典限定词反映了这样一个事实，即它代表了人们对这个学科在19世纪发展过程中的第一层次的理解，并且描述了一个系统在宏观经验(大尺度和可测量的)参数方面的变化。这些概念的微观解释后来由统计力学的发展提供。

### Statistical mechanics

### Statistical mechanics

统计力学

Statistical mechanics, also called statistical thermodynamics, emerged with the development of atomic and molecular theories in the late 19th century and early 20th century, and supplemented classical thermodynamics with an interpretation of the microscopic interactions between individual particles or quantum-mechanical states. This field relates the microscopic properties of individual atoms and molecules to the macroscopic, bulk properties of materials that can be observed on the human scale, thereby explaining classical thermodynamics as a natural result of statistics, classical mechanics, and quantum theory at the microscopic level.^{[20]}

### Equilibrium thermodynamics

### Equilibrium thermodynamics

平衡热力学

Equilibrium thermodynamics is the study of transfers of matter and energy in systems or bodies that, by agencies in their surroundings, can be driven from one state of thermodynamic equilibrium to another. The term 'thermodynamic equilibrium' indicates a state of balance, in which all macroscopic flows are zero; in the case of the simplest systems or bodies, their intensive properties are homogeneous, and their pressures are perpendicular to their boundaries. In an equilibrium state there are no unbalanced potentials, or driving forces, between macroscopically distinct parts of the system. A central aim in equilibrium thermodynamics is: given a system in a well-defined initial equilibrium state, and given its surroundings, and given its constitutive walls, to calculate what will be the final equilibrium state of the system after a specified thermodynamic operation has changed its walls or surroundings.

平衡态热力学研究的是物质和能量在系统或物体中的转移，这些系统或物体在其周围的环境中，可以从一种热力学平衡状态转移到另一种状态。热力学平衡这个术语表示一种平衡状态，在这种状态下所有的宏观流动都是零; 对于最简单的系统或物体来说，它们的密集属性是均匀的，它们的压力垂直于它们的边界。在平衡状态下，系统宏观上截然不同的部分之间没有不平衡的势能或驱动力。平衡态热力学的一个中心目标是: 给定一个处于明确初始平衡状态的系统，给定其周围环境，给定其本构壁，计算在一个特定的热力学操作改变其周围或周围环境后，系统的最终平衡状态是什么。

Non-equilibrium thermodynamics is a branch of thermodynamics that deals with systems that are not in thermodynamic equilibrium. Most systems found in nature are not in thermodynamic equilibrium because they are not in stationary states, and are continuously and discontinuously subject to flux of matter and energy to and from other systems. The thermodynamic study of non-equilibrium systems requires more general concepts than are dealt with by equilibrium thermodynamics. Many natural systems still today remain beyond the scope of currently known macroscopic thermodynamic methods.

非平衡态热力学是热力学的一个分支，主要研究非热力学平衡系统。自然界中发现的大多数系统都不在热力学平衡，因为它们不处于静止状态，并且不断不断地受到来自其他系统的物质和能量流动的影响。非平衡体系的热力学研究比平衡态热力学研究需要更多的一般概念。许多自然系统今天仍然超出目前已知的宏观热力学方法的范围。

热力学定律

Thermodynamics is principally based on a set of four laws which are universally valid when applied to systems that fall within the constraints implied by each. In the various theoretical descriptions of thermodynamics these laws may be expressed in seemingly differing forms, but the most prominent formulations are the following.

### Zeroth Law

### Zeroth Law

第零定律

The zeroth law of thermodynamics states: *If two systems are each in thermal equilibrium with a third, they are also in thermal equilibrium with each other.*

The zeroth law of thermodynamics states: If two systems are each in thermal equilibrium with a third, they are also in thermal equilibrium with each other.

美国热力学第零定律协会指出: 如果两个系统各有三分之一的热平衡，那么它们之间的热平衡也是一样的。

This statement implies that thermal equilibrium is an equivalence relation on the set of thermodynamic systems under consideration. Systems are said to be in equilibrium if the small, random exchanges between them (e.g. Brownian motion) do not lead to a net change in energy. This law is tacitly assumed in every measurement of temperature. Thus, if one seeks to decide whether two bodies are at the same temperature, it is not necessary to bring them into contact and measure any changes of their observable properties in time.^{[24]} The law provides an empirical definition of temperature, and justification for the construction of practical thermometers.

这种说法暗示了热平衡是热力学系统集合上的一个等价关系。如果系统之间的小的、随机的交换(例如:布朗运动)不会导致能量的净变化。这个定律在每次测量温度时都是默认的。因此，如果要确定两个物体是否处于同一温度，就没有必要使它们接触并及时测量它们可观测性质的任何变化。该定律提供了温度的经验定义，以及建造实用温度计的依据。

The zeroth law was not initially recognized as a separate law of thermodynamics, as its basis in thermodynamical equilibrium was implied in the other laws. The first, second, and third laws had been explicitly stated already, and found common acceptance in the physics community before the importance of the zeroth law for the definition of temperature was realized. As it was impractical to renumber the other laws, it was named the *zeroth law*.

第零定律最初并没有被认为是一个独立的热力学定律，因为它在热力学平衡中的基础在其他定律中也有暗示。第一定律、第二定律和第三定律在温度定义的第零定律的重要性被认识到之前已经被物理学界明确阐述，并且得到了普遍接受。由于对其他法律重新编号是不切实际的，因此将其命名为第零法律。

这一定律适用于热力学，是能量守恒定律的一种表述，它指出能量可以转换(从一种形式转变为另一种形式) ，但不能被创造或破坏。

Internal energy is a principal property of the thermodynamic state, while heat and work are modes of energy transfer by which a process may change this state. A change of internal energy of a system may be achieved by any combination of heat added or removed and work performed on or by the system. As a function of state, the internal energy does not depend on the manner, or on the path through intermediate steps, by which the system arrived at its state.

内能是热力学状态的主要特性，而热和功是能量传递的方式，通过这种方式，一个过程可以改变这种状态。系统内部能量的变化可以通过加热或除热以及在系统上或由系统所做的功的任何组合来实现。作为状态的函数，内能并不依赖于系统到达其状态的方式或中间步骤的路径。

The second law of thermodynamics states: *Heat cannot spontaneously flow from a colder location to a hotter location.*^{[20]}

The second law of thermodynamics states: Heat cannot spontaneously flow from a colder location to a hotter location.

热力学第二定律指出: 热量不能自发地从较冷的地方流向较热的地方。

This law is an expression of the universal principle of decay observable in nature. The second law is an observation of the fact that over time, differences in temperature, pressure, and chemical potential tend to even out in a physical system that is isolated from the outside world. Entropy is a measure of how much this process has progressed. The entropy of an isolated system which is not in equilibrium will tend to increase over time, approaching a maximum value at equilibrium. However, principles guiding systems that are far from equilibrium are still debatable. One of such principles is the maximum entropy production principle.^{[27]}^{[28]} It states that non-equilibrium systems behave such a way as to maximize its entropy production.^{[29]}

这个定律是可以在自然界观察到的衰变的普遍原理的一种表述。第二定律是对这样一个事实的观察: 随着时间的推移，在与外界隔绝的物理系统中，温度、压力和化学势的差异趋于均衡。熵是对这个过程进展程度的度量。不处于平衡状态的孤立系统的熵会随着时间的推移而增加，在平衡状态时达到最大值。然而，远离平衡的原则指导体系仍然是有争议的。其中一个原则就是最大产生熵原则。它指出，非平衡系统的行为方式使其产生熵最大化。

In classical thermodynamics, the second law is a basic postulate applicable to any system involving heat energy transfer; in statistical thermodynamics, the second law is a consequence of the assumed randomness of molecular chaos. There are many versions of the second law, but they all have the same effect, which is to explain the phenomenon of irreversibility in nature.

在经典热力学中，第二定律是适用于任何涉及热能传递的系统的基本假设; 在统计热力学中，第二定律是假定的分子混沌随机性的结果。第二定律有许多版本，但它们都具有同样的效果，即解释自然界中的不可逆现象。

The third law of thermodynamics states: As the temperature of a system approaches absolute zero, all processes cease and the entropy of the system approaches a minimum value.

热力学第三定律指出: 当一个系统的温度接近绝对零度时，所有的过程停止，系统的熵接近最小值。

This law of thermodynamics is a statistical law of nature regarding entropy and the impossibility of reaching absolute zero of temperature. This law provides an absolute reference point for the determination of entropy. The entropy determined relative to this point is the absolute entropy. Alternate definitions include "the entropy of all systems and of all states of a system is smallest at absolute zero," or equivalently "it is impossible to reach the absolute zero of temperature by any finite number of processes".

An important concept in thermodynamics is the thermodynamic system, which is a precisely defined region of the universe under study. Everything in the universe except the system is called the *surroundings*. A system is separated from the remainder of the universe by a *boundary* which may be a physical boundary or notional, but which by convention defines a finite volume. Exchanges of work, heat, or matter between the system and the surroundings take place across this boundary.

热力学中的一个重要概念是热力学系统，它是研究中的宇宙的一个精确定义的区域。除了这个系统之外，宇宙中的一切都被称为环境。一个系统通过一个边界从宇宙的其余部分中分离出来，这个边界可能是物理边界或者概念边界，但是按照惯例，它定义了一个有限的体积。系统和周围环境之间的功、热或物质的交换发生在这个边界上。

In practice, the boundary of a system is simply an imaginary dotted line drawn around a volume within which is going to be a change in the internal energy of that volume. Anything that passes across the boundary that effects a change in the internal energy of the system needs to be accounted for in the energy balance equation. The volume can be the region surrounding a single atom resonating energy, such as Max Planck defined in 1900; it can be a body of steam or air in a steam engine, such as Sadi Carnot defined in 1824; it can be the body of a tropical cyclone, such as Kerry Emanuel theorized in 1986 in the field of atmospheric thermodynamics; it could also be just one nuclide (i.e. a system of quarks) as hypothesized in quantum thermodynamics, or the event horizon of a black hole.

实际上，一个系统的边界只是一个虚构的虚线，它围绕着一个体积绘制，体积内部能量将发生变化。任何通过边界的影响系统内部能量的变化都需要在能量平衡方程中加以解释。体积可以是围绕单个原子共振能量的区域，如马克斯 · 普朗克在1900年定义的; 它可以是蒸汽机中的蒸汽体或空气体，如萨迪 · 卡诺在1824年定义的; 它可以是热带气旋的体，如 Kerry Emanuel 在1986年在大气热力学领域建立的理论; 它也可以只是一个核素(即:。量子热力学中假设的夸克系统，或黑洞的事件视界。

Boundaries are of four types: fixed, movable, real, and imaginary. For example, in an engine, a fixed boundary means the piston is locked at its position, within which a constant volume process might occur. If the piston is allowed to move that boundary is movable while the cylinder and cylinder head boundaries are fixed. For closed systems, boundaries are real while for open systems boundaries are often imaginary. In the case of a jet engine, a fixed imaginary boundary might be assumed at the intake of the engine, fixed boundaries along the surface of the case and a second fixed imaginary boundary across the exhaust nozzle.

边界有四种类型: 固定的、可移动的、真实的和想象的。例如，在发动机中，一个固定的边界意味着活塞被锁定在它的位置，在那里可能发生一个定容过程。如果活塞允许移动，那么边界是可移动的，而气缸和气缸盖边界是固定的。对于封闭系统，边界是真实的，而对于开放系统，边界往往是虚构的。在喷气发动机的情况下，可以假定在发动机进气口处有一个固定的虚边界，沿着箱体表面有一个固定的边界，在排气喷嘴处有一个固定的虚边界。

Generally, thermodynamics distinguishes three classes of systems, defined in terms of what is allowed to cross their boundaries:

Open | |||

As time passes in an isolated system, internal differences of pressures, densities, and temperatures tend to even out. A system in which all equalizing processes have gone to completion is said to be in a state of thermodynamic equilibrium.

在一个孤立的系统中，随着时间的推移，压力、密度和温度的内部差异趋于平衡。一个所有均衡过程均已完成的系统被称为处于热力学平衡状态。

Once in thermodynamic equilibrium, a system's properties are, by definition, unchanging in time. Systems in equilibrium are much simpler and easier to understand than are systems which are not in equilibrium. Often, when analysing a dynamic thermodynamic process, the simplifying assumption is made that each intermediate state in the process is at equilibrium, producing thermodynamic processes which develop so slowly as to allow each intermediate step to be an equilibrium state and are said to be reversible processes.

一旦进入热力学平衡，系统的属性，根据定义，在时间上是不变的。处于平衡状态的系统比不处于平衡状态的系统要简单得多，也更容易理解。通常，当分析一个动态热力学过程时，会做出这样的简化假设: 过程中的每一个居间态都处于平衡状态，产生的热力学过程发展得如此缓慢，以至于每一个中间步骤都是一个平衡状态，称之为可逆过程。

状态和过程

When a system is at equilibrium under a given set of conditions, it is said to be in a definite thermodynamic state. The state of the system can be described by a number of state quantities that do not depend on the process by which the system arrived at its state. They are called intensive variables or extensive variables according to how they change when the size of the system changes. The properties of the system can be described by an equation of state which specifies the relationship between these variables. State may be thought of as the instantaneous quantitative description of a system with a set number of variables held constant.

当一个系统在一组给定的条件下处于平衡状态时，我们称之为处于一个确定的热力学状态。系统的状态可以用许多状态量来描述，这些状态量并不依赖于系统到达其状态的过程。它们被称为密集型变量或扩展型变量，这取决于它们在系统规模发生变化时的变化情况。系统的属性可以用一个状态方程来描述，它指定了这些变量之间的关系。状态可以被认为是一系列变量保持不变的系统的瞬时定量描述。

A thermodynamic process may be defined as the energetic evolution of a thermodynamic system proceeding from an initial state to a final state. It can be described by process quantities. Typically, each thermodynamic process is distinguished from other processes in energetic character according to what parameters, such as temperature, pressure, or volume, etc., are held fixed; Furthermore, it is useful to group these processes into pairs, in which each variable held constant is one member of a conjugate pair.

## Instrumentation

## Instrumentation

仪器仪表

There are two types of thermodynamic instruments, the **meter** and the **reservoir**. A thermodynamic meter is any device which measures any parameter of a thermodynamic system. In some cases, the thermodynamic parameter is actually defined in terms of an idealized measuring instrument. For example, the zeroth law states that if two bodies are in thermal equilibrium with a third body, they are also in thermal equilibrium with each other. This principle, as noted by James Maxwell in 1872, asserts that it is possible to measure temperature. An idealized thermometer is a sample of an ideal gas at constant pressure. From the ideal gas law *pV=nRT*, the volume of such a sample can be used as an indicator of temperature; in this manner it defines temperature. Although pressure is defined mechanically, a pressure-measuring device, called a barometer may also be constructed from a sample of an ideal gas held at a constant temperature. A calorimeter is a device which is used to measure and define the internal energy of a system.

有两种类型的热力学设备，水表和水库。热力学仪表是测量热力学系统的任何参数的任何装置。在某些情况下，热力学参数实际上是用理想化的测量仪器来定义的。例如，第零定律指出，如果两个物体在热平衡中有第三个物体，那么它们也在热平衡中。正如詹姆斯 · 麦克斯韦尔在1872年指出的那样，这个原理断言测量温度是可能的。理想温度计是恒压下理想气体的样品。根据理想气体定律 pV nRT，这样一个样品的体积可以用作温度的指示器; 在这种方式下，它定义了温度。虽然压力是机械定义的，一个称为气压计的压力测量装置也可以由恒定温度下的理想气体样品构成。量热计是用来测量和定义系统内部能量的装置。

A thermodynamic reservoir is a system which is so large that its state parameters are not appreciably altered when it is brought into contact with the system of interest. When the reservoir is brought into contact with the system, the system is brought into equilibrium with the reservoir. For example, a pressure reservoir is a system at a particular pressure, which imposes that pressure upon the system to which it is mechanically connected. The Earth's atmosphere is often used as a pressure reservoir. If ocean water is used to cool a power plant, the ocean is often a temperature reservoir in the analysis of the power plant cycle.

热力学储存器是这样一个系统，它的状态参数如此之大，当它与感兴趣的系统接触时，它的状态参数没有明显的改变。当油藏与系统接触时，系统与油藏达到平衡。例如，压力容器是一个处于特定压力下的系统，它对与之机械连接的系统施加压力。地球的大气层经常被用作压力储存器。如果用海水来冷却发电厂，在分析发电厂的循环过程中，海洋通常是一个温度储存库。

## Conjugate variables

共轭变量

The central concept of thermodynamics is that of energy, the ability to do work. By the First Law, the total energy of a system and its surroundings is conserved. Energy may be transferred into a system by heating, compression, or addition of matter, and extracted from a system by cooling, expansion, or extraction of matter. In mechanics, for example, energy transfer equals the product of the force applied to a body and the resulting displacement.

热力学的核心概念是能量，做功的能力。根据第一定律，系统及其周围环境的总能量是守恒的。能量可以通过加热、压缩或添加物质的方式转移到系统中，也可以通过冷却、膨胀或提取物质的方式从系统中提取。例如，在力学中，能量传递等于作用在物体上的力和由此产生的位移的乘积。

Conjugate variables are pairs of thermodynamic concepts, with the first being akin to a "force" applied to some thermodynamic system, the second being akin to the resulting "displacement," and the product of the two equalling the amount of energy transferred. The common conjugate variables are:

## Potentials

Thermodynamic potentials are different quantitative measures of the stored energy in a system. Potentials are used to measure the energy changes in systems as they evolve from an initial state to a final state. The potential used depends on the constraints of the system, such as constant temperature or pressure. For example, the Helmholtz and Gibbs energies are the energies available in a system to do useful work when the temperature and volume or the pressure and temperature are fixed, respectively.
