Department of Physics and Astronomy University of Canterbury PHYS113-08S2 Homework #6, 2008 Due 12 September Attempt all questions in writing before you come to the tutorial. All problems will be discussed with your tutor in group sessions in the tutorials. Hand in your written work to receive credit for the homework. 1. 2006 Phys113-S2 Exam Question 6 One mole of an ideal monatomic gas initially occupies a volume of 8 × 10 - 3 m 3 at a temperature of 300 K. (state 1) The gas is then subject to the following processes in sequence: heated at constant volume to a temperature of 400 K (state 2); allowed to expand isothermally to its initial pressure (state 3); compressed isobarically to its original (state 1). (a) Sketch the cycle followed by the gas on a pV diagram. ( 2 marks ) (b) Find the pressure and volume of the gas in state 3. ( 4 marks ) (c) Calculate the heat exchanged between the gas and its environment during each of the 3 processes of the cycle 1 2, 2 3, 3 1. Indicate whether the heat enters or leaves the gas.
