Conversion of Work into Heat

Work can be converted into equal amount of heat. So mathematically we can write W = Q. Where  indicates the direction of energy conversion.

Fig. 6.1 shows that process 1 to 2 is done when W1 _ 2 work is given as an input. The process 2 to 1 is· obtained by heat transfer Q2- 1. It has been found that

w1-2= Q2-1
