Question

One mole of ideal gas initially at 300 K is expanded from an
initial pressure of 10 atm to a final pressure of 1 atm. Calculate
ΔU, q, w, ΔH, and the final temperature T2 for this expansion
carried out according to each of the following paths. The heat
capacity of an ideal gas is cV=3R/2.

1. A reversible adiabatic expansion.

Answer #1

ANSWER

ΔU = q + w =====First law of thermodynamics

in adiabatic process q = 0

therefore ΔU = w

ΔU = C_{v} ΔT

ΔT = Tf - Ti

Final temperature can be found fy following equation

(T1/T2) = (P2/P1)^{1-ϒ/ϒ}

ϒ = Cp / Cv

**Cp = Cv + R = 3R/2 + R = 5/2R**

**ϒ =** (**5/2R) / (3R/2) =
1.66**

(T1/T2)= (P2/P1)^{(1-1.66) / 1.66}

(300 /T2)= (1/10)^{-0.397}

**(300 /T2)= (10) ^{0.397}**

**(300 /T2)= 2.5**

**T2 = 300 / 2.5 = 120K**

ΔT = Tf - Ti = 120 - 300 = **-180K**

ΔU = C_{v} ΔT

**ΔU = 3/2 R X 180 = 3/2 X 8.314 X (-180) = -
2244.78J**

**w = ΔU = - 2244.78J**

**ΔU = Cp ΔT = 5/2 X 8.314 X (-180) = -
3741.3J**

One mole of an ideal gas at 300 K is expanded adiabatically and
reversibly from 20 atm to 1 atm. What is the final temperature of
the gas, assuming Cv= 3/2R.

One more of an ideal gas initially at 27oC and 1 bar pressure is
heated and allowed to expand reversibly at a constant pressure
until the final temperature is 327oC. For this gas, Cv,m = 2.5R,
constant over the temperature range. (Note from SRB: Cv,m is the
molar heat capacity. An earlier version of the 5th edition that I
used last year used Cv with a bar over it, as we have been doing in
class. Sorry for any confusion.)....
