Question

Consider a free fermion gas of N particles in a volume V at zero temperature. The total kinetic energy of the gas is U = (3/5)N epsilon-F with epsilon-F

Photons are massless light particles and they do not interact
with each other. Consider a gas of N photons in volume V at
temperature T. The energy e of a photon is related to its momentum
p by the equation e = cp, where c is the speed of light. Find the
pressure P and the internal energy E of the photon gas in terms of
N, V, T, and k.

2.1 de Broglie wavelengths of particles, “quantum” behavior in a
gas
Consider a gas of atoms, each of mass m, confined in a container
at a temperature T. Assume that the density of atoms in this gas is
ρ. Using the law of equipartition of energy, derive an expression
for the rms velocity v in terms of the temperature. Use this result
to calculate the average de Broglie wavelength λ of atoms in this
gas. At what temperature TQ does...

(d) The resolution relies on the thermodynamic limit;...

Derive the Sacker-Tetrode Equation which is the entropy
expression for N indistinguishable ideal gas atoms of total energy
U in a container of volume V.

. A container has n = 3 moles of a monoatomic ideal gas at a
temperature of 330 K and an initial pressure of three times the
atmospheric pressure. The gas is taken through the following
thermodynamic cycle: 1.- The gas is expanded isobarically (constant
pressure) to Vf = 2.5∙Vi. 2.- The pressure of the gas is decreased
isochorically (constant volume) to half of the initial value. 3.-
The gas is compressed isobarically back to its initial volume. 4.-
The...

A sealed container of volume V = 0.10 m3 holds a sample of N =

(Tb, pb, Vb). If pb<pa, which statement is false?
(A) Vb >Va
(B) Tb <Ta
(C) The change in internal energy is DU=Ub – Ua = 3/2 (pbVb –
paVa).
(D) The temperature Tb is given by Tb = Ta (Va/Vb)g.
(E) The change in entropy is zero.

The van der Waals equation of state is (P + a(n/V )^2)(V/n − b)
= RT, where a and b are gas-specific constants. For Hydrogen gas, a
= 2.45 × 10^-2P a · m^6 and b = 26.61 × 10^-6m^3/mol, while for an
ideal gas a = b = 0. (a) Consider trying to measure the ideal gas
constant in a lab from the relation R = P V/(nT), where P, V, n,

At a constant temperature, the number of moles (n) of an ideal
gas is a function of two variables ? = ?(?, ?) where P is the
pressure and V is the volume (Remember the ideal gas law ?? = ???,
where R is the universal gas constant). The number of moles
function is given as ? = ?(?, ?) = −? 2 + 4? − ? 2 + 6?. Find the
maximum and minimum values of the number of...
