Question

An ideal gas is enclosed in a cylinder with a movable piston on
top of it. The piston has a mass of 8,000 g and an area of 5.00
cm^{2} and is free to slide up and down, keeping the
pressure of the gas constant.

(a) How much work is done on the gas as the temperature of 0.155 mol of the gas is raised from 30.0°C to 330°C?

_______ J

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...

One mole of an ideal gas is contained in a cylinder with a
movable piston. The temperature is constant at 76°C. Weights are
removed suddenly from the piston to give the following sequence of
three pressures.
a. P1 = 5.10 atm (initial state)
b. P2 = 2.23 atm
c. P3 = 1.00 atm (final state)
What is the total work (in joules) in going from the initial to
the final state by way of the preceding two steps?
_________J (need...

A 6.0-cm-diameter cylinder of nitrogen gas has a 4.0-cm-thick
movable copper piston. The cylinder is oriented vertically, as
shown in the figure, and the air above the piston is evacuated.
When the gas temperature is 15 ∘C , the piston floats 20cm above
the bottom of the cylinder.
A. What is the gas pressure?
B. How many gas molecules are in the cylinder?
C. Then 1.5 JJ of heat energy are transferred to the
gas. What is the new equilibrium temperature...

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 1.64 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.
Enter a numerical answer only, in terms of
atm.

A cylinder sealed with a piston contains an ideal gas. Heat is
added to the gas while the piston remains locked in place until the
absolute temperature of the gas doubles.
1. The pressure of the gas a. doubles b. stays the same c. drops
in half
2. The work done by the surroundings on the gas is a. positive
b. negative c. zero
3. The thermal energy of the gas a. doubles b. stays the same c.
drops in...

A cylinder contains 1.5 moles of ideal gas, initially at a
temperature of 113 ∘C. The cylinder is provided with a frictionless
piston, which maintains a constant pressure of 6.4×105Pa on the
gas. The gas is cooled until its temperature has decreased to 27∘C.
For the gas CV = 11.65 J/mol⋅K, and the ideal gas
constant R = 8.314 J/mol⋅K.
1.Find the work done by the gas during this process.
2.What is the change in the internal (thermal) energy of...

A gas is enclosed in a cylinder fitted with a light frictionless
piston and maintained at atmospheric pressure. When 254 kcal of
heat is added to the gas, the volume is observed to increase slowly
from 12.0 m3 to 16.2 m3 .
A. Calculate the work done by the gas
B. Calculate the change in internal energy of the gas.

An insulated cylinder is fitted with an airtight piston that is
free to slide up and down and is connected to a rod. Contained
within the cylinder is an ideal gas initially at a pressure of 120
kPa and temperature of 293 K. Suddenly the piston is forced
downward creating an additional 200 kPa
of pressure on the gas and as a result the cylinder volume
decreases to one-half of its original volume.
(a) What is the final temperature of...

A quantity of air is contained in a cylinder provided
with a movable piston. Initially the
pressure of the air is 4 × 107 N/m2
, the volume is 1.5 m3
and the temperature is 400 K.
Assume air is an ideal gas. (a) What are the final volume and
temperature of the air if it is
allowed to expand isothermally from initial conditions until the
pressure is 3 × 107 N/m2
and
then is cooled at constant volume until...
