6.10 If the heater operates as rated, then the total amount of heat transferred to the cylinder will be 1 1 4 (100 J s )(10 min)(60 s min ) 6.0 10 J or 60 kJ - - = × Work will be given by ext = - w P V in this case because it is an expansion against a constant opposing pressure: (0.975 atm)(10.00 L 2.00 L) 7.80 L atm = - - = - w In order to combine the two terms to get the internal energy change, we must first convert the units on the energy terms to the same values. A handy trick to get the conversion factor for L atm to J or vice versa is to make use of the equivalence of the ideal gas constant R in terms of L atm and J: 1 1 1 1 8.314 J K mol 7.80 L atm 790 J or 0.790 kJ 0.082 06 L atm K mol - - - - = - = - - w The internal energy change is then the sum of these two numbers: 60 kJ ( 0.790 kJ) 59 kJ U q w = + = + - 2245 The energy change due to the work term turns out to be negligible in this problem. 6.14 (a) true only if q = 0; (b) always true, volume is fixed and no work can be done; (c) never true; (d) always true; (e) true if q = 0 6.24 (a) Because the process is isothermal, 0 = U and . = - q w For a reversible process, 2 1 ln = - V w nRT V n is obtained from the ideal gas law: 1 1 1 1 (2.57 atm)(3.42 L) 0.359 mol (0.082 06 L atm K mol )(298 K) 7.39 (0.359 mol)(8.314 J K mol )(298 K) ln 685 J 3.42 685 J - - - - = = = = - = - = + PV n RT w q (b) For step 1, because the volume is constant, 0 and . = = w U q

In step 2, there is an irreversible expansion against a constant opposing pressure, which is calculated from ex = - w P V The constant opposing pressure is given, and V can be obtained from final initial 7.39 L 3.42 L - = - V V (1.19 atm)(7.39 L 3.42 L) 101.325 J 4.72 L atm ( 4.72 L atm) 479 J 1 L atm = - - = - = - = - w

What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
