# Question

During the compression stroke of a certain gasoline engine, the pressure increases from 1.00 atm to 20.0 atm. If the process is adiabatic and the fuel–air mixture behaves as a diatomic ideal gas, (a) by what factor does the volume change and (b) by what factor does the temperature change? (c) Assuming that the compression starts with 0.016 0 mol of gas at 27.0°C, find the values of Q, W, and ΔEint that characterize the process.
