Question

Consider the following four-process cycle that is carried out on a system of monatomic ideal gas, starting from state 1 in which the pressure is 88.0 kPa and the volume is 3.00 liters.

Process A is an isothermal process that triples the
volume;

process B is a constant volume process that returns the system to a
pressure of 88.0 kPa;

process C is an isothermal process that returns the system to a
volume of 3.00 liters;

and process D is a constant volume process that returns the system
to state 1.

You should sketch a *P*-*V* diagram for this
cycle, to help you understand it.

Complete the table below. For each process, and the entire cycle,
find the heat added to the gas, the work done by the gas, and the
change in internal energy.

Answer #1

A cylinder of monatomic ideal gas is sealed in a cylinder by a
piston. Initially, the gas occupies a volume of 3.00 L and the
pressure is initially 105 kPa. The cylinder is placed in an oven
that maintains the temperature at a constant value. 65.0 J of work
is then done on the piston, compressing the gas (in other words,
the gas does −65.0 J of work). The work is done very slowly so that
the gas maintains a...

3.0 moles of an ideal gas are subjected to the following
processes. First the volume is tripled in an isobaric process. Then
it undergoes an isothermal process to a pressure of 9.0 kPa. The
volume is then cut in half in another isobaric process after being
tripled. Finally, it returns to the original state in an isochoric
process. (a) Draw a PV diagram of the cycle. Label each state
(vertex) with a letter (A, B, …) and each transition with...

a.) In an Isothermal process the temperature stays thes same as
the volume and pressure are allowed to change. In such a proces the
work is found by W=nRTln (VfVi), with n as the number of moles, R
as the constant 8.31 J/mole*K . How much work is done in an
isothermal process of an ideal gas starting at a pressure of 2.10E2
kPa, and 0.0360 m3 volume as it expands to a volume of 0.165
m3?
b.) If the...

Rectangular PV Cycle
A piston contains 260 moles of an ideal monatomic gas that
initally has a pressure of 2.61 × 105 Pa and a volume of
4.9 m3. The piston is connected to a hot and cold
reservoir and the gas goes through the following quasi-static cycle
accepting energy from the hot reservoir and exhausting energy into
the cold reservoir.
1. The pressure of the gas is increased to 5.61 × 105
Pa while maintaining a constant volume.

Consider a process carried out on 1.00 mol of a monatomic ideal
gas by the following two different pathways. The first pathway
is A (3.00 atm, 20.0 L) to C (1.00 atm, 20.0 L) to D (1.00 atm,
50.0 L); and the second pathway is A (3.00 atm, 20.0 L) to B

2.)1.0 mol sample of an ideal monatomic gas originally at a
pressure of 1 atm undergoes a 3-step process as follows:
(i) It expands
adiabatically from T1 = 588 K to T2 = 389 K
(ii) It is compressed at
constant pressure until its temperature reaches T3 K
(iii) It then returns to its
original pressure and temperature by a constant volume process.

A heat engine composed of 1.6 moles of an ideal, monotonic gas
is initially at 350 K and 1x10^5 Pa. The first step is an
isothermal expansion to a pressure of 5x10^4 Pa. Second, the gas is
compressed at constant pressure back to the inital volume. Finally
the gas returns, at constant volume to the initial state. What is
the total work done by the gas during this cycle? What is the
efficiency of this cycle?

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...
