Question

Assume that one mole of a monatomic (CV,m = 2.5R) ideal gas undergoes a reversible isobaric expansion at 1 bar and the volume increases from 0.5 L to 1 L. (a) Find the heat per mole, the work per mole done, and the change in the molar internal energy, ΔUm, the molar enthalpy, ΔHm, for this process. b) What are the entropy changes ΔSm of the system and of the surroundings? Is this process spontaneous? Justify your answer.

Answer #1

Heat change when one mole of monoatomic gas undergoes a a reversible isobaric expansion at 1 bar and the volume increases from 0.5 L to 1 L is given by

W = -P(V) = -P(V2-V1)

W = -1(1-0.5) = -0.5 L.atm (1 L.atm = 101.3 J)

W = -0.5*101.3 J = -50.65 J

For an ideal gas expansion at constant temperature i.e., dT = 0, U = 0

From first law of thermodynamics, U =Q+W = 0 (since U=0)

Q = -W = -(-50.65) J = 50.65 J = 0.050 KJ/mol

the molar enthalpy, ΔHm = U+PV

since U=0, ΔHm = PV = 0.050 KJ/mol

Change in entropy, S = ΔHm/T = 0.050/273 = 1.83*10^-4 J.K

since the change in entropy is +ve the process is spontaneous.

internal energy, change in enthalpy, and change in entropy for this
process b) Calculate change in internal energy, change in enthalpy,

1) The gas undergoes a reversible adiabatic expansion until the
final pressure is one-fourth its initial value.
2) The gas undergoes an adiabatic expansion against a constant

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.)....

N moles of this gas undergoes the following cyclical process
composed of four reversible steps:
i. Isovolumetric cooling from state 1 (T1 and P1) to State 2 (T2
and P2);
ii. Isothermal expansion from state 2 (T2 and P2) to state 3 (T2
and P3);
iii. Isovolumetric heating from state 3 (T2 and P3) back to
