Question

Consider an ideal gas of 0.2 mole of argon atoms with an initial volume of 0.8 Liter and a temperature of 300K.

a) The gas is thermally isolated and allowed to expand adiabatically to a final volume of 1 Liter. Find the final temperature of the gas after its adiabatic expansion.

b) With the gas at the temperature Tf that you calculated in (a), it is now brought into contact with a large thermal reservoir at 300K and equilibriates to this temperature at constant volume. How much does the internal energy of the gas change during the process?

c) Find the change in the total entropy due to the process described in problem (b). Note that the total entropy includes the entropy of the gas and of the environment (i.e. the thermal reservoir).

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...
