a. One mole of an ideal monoatomic gas (closed system, Cv,m) initially at 1 atm and 273.15 K experiences a reversible process in which the volume is doubled. the nature of the process is unspecified, but the following quantities are known, deltaH=2000.0J and q=1600.0J. Calculate the initial volume, the final temperature, the final pressure, deltaU, and w for the process.
b. Suppose the above gas was taken from the same initial state to the same final state as in the first part, but by a two step process consisting of first a reversible, isobaric step and then a reversible, isothermal step. Draw a diagram of P vs T indicting the overall change of state and the two step pathway. Calculate the overall deltaH, deltaU, deltaw, and q for the two step process.
