Question

3 moles of a monoatomic ideal gas with Cv=(32)RT occupies a
volume of 3.2L at a pressure of 1.9atm at point A. The gas is
carried through a cycle consisting of three processes:

1. The gas is heated at constant pressure until its volume is 4.4L
at point B.

2. The gas is cooled at constant volume until the pressure
decreases to 1.2atm (C).

3. The gas undergoes an isothermal compression back to point
A.

Find W for the isochoric process.

Answer #1

The process is represented on a P-V diagram as follows:

In the isothermal process,

initial state is: P1=1.2 atm and V1=4.4 L

final state is: P2=1.9 atm and V2=3.2

In the question work done is asked in Isochoric process, in this process volume is constant.

dV=0

So,the work done will be zero.

But if the process is isothermal

In an isothermal process, work done by the gas is:

As the given gas is ideal:

Substituting above expression for T in the work:

. 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.-

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...

An ideal gas with γ=1.4 occupies 5.0 L at 300 K and 120 kPa
pressure and is heated at constant volume until its pressure has
doubled. It's then compressed adiabatically until its volume is
one-fourth its original value, then cooled at constant volume to
300 K , and finally allowed to expand isothermally to its original
state.
Find the net work done on the gas. W= ___J

Consider 1.00 mol of an ideal gas (CV = 3/2 R)

28 moles of an ideal gas with a molar specific heat at constant
volume of cv=3.2R is initially in state "A" at pressure 73390 Pa
and volume 1.0 m3.
The gas then expands isobarically to state "B" which has volume
2.6?3m3.
The gas then cools isochorically to state "C".
The gas finally returns from state "C" to "A" via an isothermal
process.
