Question

An insulated cylinder is filled with nitrogen gas at 25ºC and 1.00 bar. The nitrogen is then compressed adiabatically with a constant pressure of 5.00 bar until equilibrium is reached. i. What is the final temperature of the nitrogen if it is treated as an ideal gas with molar heat capacity CP = 7/2 R ?

ii. Calculate ΔH (in kJ mol-1 ) and ΔS (in J mol-1 K-1 ) for the compression. (Hint: Because the enthalpy is a state function it can be calculated via any path from the initial state to the final state. So you can calculate the enthalpy change for the reversible path TiPi → TfPi → TfPf.)

Answer #1

A 0.50 L container is initially filled with Nitrogen gas at STP.
The gas expands against a piston adiabatically to a volume of 50.0%
larger than the original volume. The Nitrogen may be treated as an
ideal gas with ?=7/5.
a) Calculate the final
temperature and pressure.
b) What is the work
done?
c) Sketch a pV-diagram
for this process. On this diagram also draw the isotherms for the
initial and final temperatures.

Two moles of nitrogen are initially at 10 bar and 600 K (state
1) in a horizontal piston/cylinder device. They are expanded
adiabatically to 1 bar (state 2). They are then heated at constant
volume to 600 K (state 3). Finally, they are isothermally returned
to state 1. Assume that N 2 is an ideal gas with a constant heat
capacity as given on the back flap of the book. Neglect the heat
capacity of the piston/cylinder device. Suppose that...

. One mole of carbon dioxide is compressed adiabatically from 1
bar and 25ºC to 10 bar. Due to poor design of the compressor, the
work required is 25% more than is theoretically necessary (i.e., a
reversible compressor). What is the temperature of the carbon
dioxide and how much work is required for the change in state?

A tank of 0.1 m3 volume initially containing nitrogen
at 25 C and 1 bar will be filled with compressed nitrogen at a rate
of 20 mol/s. The nitrogen coming from the compressor and into the
tank is at an absolute pressure of 110 bar and a temperature of 80
C. The filling process occurs sufficiently rapidly that there is
negligible heat transfer between the gas and the tank walls, and a
valve is closed to stop the filling process...

2.25 moles of an ideal gas with Cv,m = 5R/2 are transformed
irreversibly from an initial
state T = 680 K and P = 1.15 bar to a final state T= 298 and P=
4.75 bar.
a) Calculate ΔU, ΔH, and ΔS for this process.
b) Calculate ΔU, ΔH, and ΔS for this process was reversible.

ir is mostly a mixture of diatomic oxygen and nitrogen; treat it
as an ideal gas with
?=1.40,
?v =20.8J⋅mol−1⋅K−1.
Theuniversalgasconstantis?=8.315J⋅mol−1 K−1. The compression
ratio of a diesel engine is 15:1, meaning that air in the
cylinders is compressed to 1/15 of its initial volume. If the
initial pressure is 1.01 × 105 Pa and the initial temperature is
300 K, find:
i) The final temperature after adiabatic compression.
ii) The final pressure after adiabatic compression.
iii) How much work...

3. 10.0 moles of ideal gas cloud has an initial pressure of 1.00
bar, initial volume of 100.0L and temperature of 25.0ºC. The cloud
expands adiabatically to a final volume of 1000.0L. Cp,m= 20.79 J /
mol K (Cp,m is molar heat capacity and constant pressure)
a. (10 pts) What is the final pressure of the gas cloud?
b. (10 pts) What is the final temperature of the gas cloud?
c. (10 pts) What is the change in entropy for...

1 mole of a non-ideal gas is compressed isothermally at 100°C
from 1 bar to 50 bar. What are the heat and work needed for this
(reversible) compression if the gas conforms to the principle of
corresponding states?
The critical properties of the non-ideal gas are Tc = 406 K
and Pc = 11.3 MPa.

It is possible to go from a given initial equilibrium state of a
system to a given final equilibrium state by a number of different
paths, involving different intermediate states and different
amounts of heat and work. Since the internal energy of a system is
a state function, its change between any two states must be
independent of the path chosen. The heat and work flows are,
however, path-dependent quantities and can differ on different
paths between given initial and...

1a-Consider a sealed, well-insulated tank filled with 10 moles
of gaseous nitrogen, at sufficiently low pressure that it can be
treated as an ideal gas. At an initial time, the methane is at a
temperature 300 K. A shaft passes into the tank and performs 100
Joules of shaft work per minute. What is the total change in the
internal energy of the tank over 10 minutes, in Joules?
b- For the system in problem 1, what is the temperature...
