 Chapter 5: (Sample Exercises) 1. Calculate the change in the internal  energy of the system for a process in  which the system absorbs 140 J of heat  from the surroundings and does 85 J of  work on the surroundings.  ∆E = q + W       = q (+ve: system absorbs heat from  surrounding);          W (-ve: work done on the surrounding)  ∆E = 140 + (-85)

      = 140 – 85 = + 55 J 2.  How much heat is released when 4.50 g of  methane gas is burned in a constant- pressure  system? CH 4  (g) +2O 2  (g)   CO 2  (g) + 2 H 2 O (l)   ∆H= -  890 kJ Step 1: Using the above equation:

1 mol CH gives - 890 kJ (stoichiometry of the  equation) Step 2: So convert 4.50 g of methane (CH 4   ) in moles  = 4.50 g CH / 16.0 g (MW of CH 4 ) = 0.28125
