# Question

A gas is enclosed in a cylindrical piston with a 12.0-cm radius. Heat is slowly added to the gas while the pressure is maintained at 1.00 atm. During the process, the piston moves 6.00 cm.

(a) This is an (1) isothermal, (2) isobaric, (3) adiabatic process. Explain.

(b) If the heat transferred to the gas during the expansion is 420 J, what is the change in the internal energy of the gas?

2.0 mol of an ideal gas expands isothermally from a volume of 20 L to 40 L at 20 oC. (a) The work done by the gas is (1) positive, (2) negative, (3) zero. Explain. (b) What is the magnitude of the work? One mole of an ideal gas is taken through the cyclic process shown in Fig. 12.24. (a) Compute the work involved for each of the four processes. (b) Find ∆U, W, and Q for the complete cycle. (c) What is T3? One mole of an ideal gas undergoes an isothermal compression at 0 oC, and 7.5 x 103 J of work is done in compressing the gas. (a) Will the entropy of the gas (1) increase, (2) remain the same, or (3) decrease? Why? (b) ...A 50.0-g ice cube at oC is placed in 500mL of water at 20 oC. Estimate the change in entropy (after all the ice has melted) (a) For the ice, (b) For the water, and (c) For the ice–water system. An ideal gas goes through a thermodynamic process in which 500 J of work is done on the gas and the gas loses 300 J of heat. What is the change in internal energy of the gas?Post your question
