```										Dear tushar
If the work is done by system then it is positive and if work is done on the system them work done will be negative

lets discuss with carnot cycle.
in compression process work is done on the system so work done will be negative.(4-1)
in expansion process work is done by the system so it will be positive.(2-3)
lets find the magnitude of work done
We =+Cv(T2-T3)
it will be positive
and
Wc = -Cv(T1-T2)  we have taken - sign becouse work done is negative

Please feel free to post as many doubts on our discussion forum as you can. If you find any question Difficult to understand - post it here and we will get you the answer and detailed solution very quickly. We are all IITians and here to help you in your IIT JEE  & AIEEE preparation.

An electric heater of 1.08 kW is immersed in water. After the water has reached a temp. of 100 degree celcius , how much time will be required to produce 100g of steam?

First, we calcuate the latent heat of vapourization which is nothing but the electric energy consumed. ie 2260 * 10 3 J/kg Heat required to convert 100g of steam = 226 * 10 3 J Power of the ...

what is termal energy

Thermal energy is the energy that comes from heat. This heat is generated by the movement of tiny particles within an object.These particles move the faster, the more heat is generated.
