LE SYSTEME INTERNATIONAL
d’UNITES (SI)
 Mass
- amount of material
in a substance
measure in grams or
kilograms
SI
 Force
- a push or pull

Weight
- measure of the force
exerted on the body by
the gravitational pull of
the earth
SI
 Kilogram force (kgf)
- the force of gravity of
an object having a mass
of 1 kg

 Newton
- mass 1kg, acceleration
1 m/s2

gravity = 9.807 m/s2


SI
 Pressure
- force per unit
area
P = f/a
PRESSURE
 kgf/cm2
 Pascal (Pa)

 Pound per square


inch (psi)
PRESSURE
 The deeper the more
pressure
 The pressure is the
weight of column of
water above the
diver
PRESSURE
 Atmospheric
pressure – layer of
gas around the earth
about 20km
thickness
 Agreed unit of
pressure is Pascal
(Pa) or bar
 0 meter, 1bar=1atm
MANIFOLD GAUGE
 A device for
measuring:
– pressure
– temperature
GAUGE
 Pressure
 Temperature

 Refrigerant

 0 b = 1atm
 absolute pressure =
gauge pressure +
atmospheric pressure
QUIZ
 If atmospheric
pressure is 1 b, why
is the gauge show 0
at rest?

 relative pressure or
gauge pressure
THE PRESSURE-TEMPERATURE
RELATIONSHIP
 In a balloon there is
two pressure:
– Internal pressure
– External pressure or
atmospheric pressure
Pressure-Temperature
 At atmospheric
pressure the
internal and
external pressure
is equivalent
 Pressure uniformly
distributed
Pressure-Temperature
 Increase the
internal pressure
and the water start
to boil
 At 1 b pressure, the
temperature is 100
°C
Pressure-Temperature
 External pressure
smaller – 0.7 b
 The internal
pressure need less
pressure to
overcome external
pressure
 At 0.7 b external,
water boil at 90°C
CONCLUSION
CONCLUSION
 Every time the pressure changes, the
temperature also changes
 At every pressure, there is a
corresponding boiling point

 Thisis call pressure-temperature


relationship

A SENSATION OF TEMPERATURE
DIFFERENTS
 BRAIN IS MAKING COMPARISON
BETWEEN THE LEVEL OF HEAT

 Thepalm of our hand is between


30°C~33°C
UNIT OF HEAT
 Calorie (cal)
-1g water, 1°C = 1 cal

CONVERSIONS
HEAT TRANSFER

 Water and air


“touch” indirectly
 Heat passes from
hotter to colder
HEAT TRANSFER

 The amount of heat


gained by the air is
exactly equal to that
lost by the water
HEAT TRANSFER
 Only if there is
temperature
difference
 Heat always flows from
the hotter body to the
colder body

 In financial industry, the rich


didn’t always give to the poor
BOILING OF WATER

 If we keep boiling,
temperature of
water will stabilizes
BOILING OF WATER
CHANGE OF STATE
 Liquid state to
gaseous state
(steam)

does not increase
further…
BOILING OF WATER

increase from t0 –
t2

temperature is 100°C
 Changing from liquid to
vapor
 When liquid evaporates,
it absorb heat- latent
heat of vaporization
0°C
 0°C, Ice melting
 Temperature
constant - fusion
0°C
0°C, Ice melting
 t0-t1 – solid state
to liquid state
0°C
 No more ice
 Temperature start
to increase
0°C - 100°C
 Temperature t2
=100 °C
 Latent heat of
fusion –solid to liquid
CONCLUSION
 Water changes from solid to liquid at
constant temperature 0°C by absorbing
heat – LATENT HEAT OF FUSION
 Water changes from liquid to vapor at
constant temperature 100°C by
absorbing heat – LATENT HEAT OF
VAPORISATION
