Chapter 20 – Student Solutions Manual 5. (a) Since the gas is ideal, its pressure p is given in terms of the number of moles n , the volume V , and the temperature T by p = nRT / V . The work done by the gas during the isothermal expansion is 22 11 2 1 ln . == = ∫∫ VV dV V Wp d V n R T n R T We substitute V 2 = 2.00 V 1 to obtain () ( )( ) 3 = ln2.00 = 4.00 mol 8.31 J/mol K 400 K ln2.00 = 9.22 10 J. Wn R T ⋅× (b) Since the expansion is isothermal, the change in entropy is given by ( ) 1 ST d Q Q Δ= = T , where Q is the heat absorbed. According to the first law of thermodynamics, Δ E int = Q W . Now the internal energy of an ideal gas depends only on the temperature and not on the pressure and volume. Since the expansion is isothermal, Δ E int = 0 and Q = W . Thus, 3 9.22 10 J = = = 23.1 J/K. 400 K × Δ W S T (c) Δ S = 0 for all reversible adiabatic processes. 7. (a) The energy that leaves the aluminum as heat has magnitude Q = m a c a ( T ai T f ), where m a is the mass of the aluminum, c a is the specific heat of aluminum, T ai is the initial temperature of the aluminum, and T f is the final temperature of the aluminum- water system. The energy that enters the water as heat has magnitude Q = m w c w ( T f T wi ), where m w is the mass of the water, c w is the specific heat of water, and T wi is the initial temperature of the water. The two energies are the same in magnitude since no energy is lost. Thus, + + −− aaa i www i aa a i f ww f w i f mcT mc T T mc T T T mc mc . The specific heat of aluminum is 900 J/kg K and the specific heat of water is 4190 J/kg K.

(b) Now temperatures must be given in Kelvins: T ai = 393 K, T wi = 293 K, and T f = 330 K. For the aluminum, dQ = m a c a dT and the change in entropy is () ( ) 330 K
