Question

One mole of an ideal gas expands reversibly and isothermally from 10. bar to 1.0 bar at 298.15K.

(i)Calculate the values of w, q, ∆U and ∆H?

(ii)Calculate w if the gas were to have expanded to the same final state against a constant pressure of 1 bar.

Answer #1

i) a)For isothermal process

temperature Change, ∆T =0

Therefore,

Internal Energy change , ∆U = 0

b) For isothermal expansion

work done , w = -nRTln(P1/P2)

= 1mol× 8.314(J/K mol) × 298.15K × 2.303log(10bar/1bar)

= -5708.7J

c) According to first law of thermodynamics ( IUPAC convention)

∆U = Q + w

∆U = 0

Therefore,

Q + w =0

Q= -w

therfore,

Heat added to the system, Q = -(-5708.7J) = 5708.7J

d) H = U + pv

pV = nRT

H = U + nRT

U + nRT is constant

Therefore,

Enthalphy change , ∆H = 0

¡¡) work done, w = - work done by system

= - (-5708.7J)

= 5708.7J

A mole of a monatomic ideal gas is taken from an initial
pressure p and volume V to a final pressure 3p and volume 3V by two
different processes: (I) It expands isothermally until its volume
is tripled, and then its pressure is increased at constant volume
to the final pressure. (II) It is compressed isothermally until its
pressure is tripled, and then its volume is increased at constant
pressure to the final volume. Show the path of each process...
