Question

A 10 cm -diameter cylinder contains argon gas at 10 atm pressure and a temperature of 60 ∘C . A piston can slide in and out of the cylinder. The cylinder's initial length is 19 cm . 2600 J of heat are transferred to the gas, causing the gas to expand at constant pressure. 1-What is the final temperature of the cylinder? 2-What is the final length of the cylinder?

Answer #1

1. Final temp of the cylinder in an isobaric (const. pressure) heat transfer process is given by :-

Q = nCpT = 1*0.520kJ/(kg K))*(Tf - Ti)

Assuming it to be an ideal gas,

PV = nRT

1013250 * (3.14*0.05*0.05*0.19) = n * 8.3145 * 333

n = 0.54

2.6kJ = 0.54*0.520kJ/(kg K))*(Tf - 333K)

(Tf - 333K) = 2.6 / 0.28 = 9.28

Tf = 342.28K

2. Final length of cylinder will be given by :-

PV=nRT

Given, P =constant. So, V/T = constant

V1 / T1 = V2 / T2

(3.14*0.05*0.05*0.19) / 333 = V2 / 342.28

V2 = 0.00153 m3

0.00153 = 3.14*0.05*0.05*L

L = 19.52 cm

Part A) A certain amount of chlorine gas was placed inside a
cylinder with a movable piston at one end. The initial volume was
3.00 L and the initial pressure of chlorine was 1.40 atm . The
piston was pushed down to change the volume to 1.00 L. Calculate
the final pressure of the gas if the temperature and number of
moles of chlorine remain constant.
part B) In an air-conditioned room at 19.0 ∘C, a spherical
balloon had the...
