Explain why the process shown in Fig. 12.1b is not that for an ideal gas at constant temperature.
Answer to relevant QuestionsIf ideal gas sample A receives more heat than ideal gas sample B, will sample A experience a higher increase in internal energy? Explain. The maximum efficiency of a heat engine is 1 (or). Can the COP of a thermal pump be greater than 1? Explain. A fixed quantity of gas undergoes the reversible changes illustrated in the p–V diagram in Fig. 12.22. How much work is done in each process? 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? In the winter, heat from a house with an inside temperature of 18 oC leaks out at a rate of 2.0 x 104 J. The out-side temperature is 0 oC. (a) What is the change in entropy per second of the house? (b) What is the total ...
