Carnot Efficiency 001 10.0 points A heat engine operates between two reservoirs at 18 . 9 C and 168 C. What is the maximum efficiency possible for this engine? Correct answer: 0 . 338095. Explanation: Given : T h = 168 C = 441 K and T c = 18 . 9 C = 291 . 9 K . Efficiency e = 1- T c T h = 1- 291 . 9 K 441 K = . 338095 . Entropy in Expansion 002 10.0 points 58 . 1 mol of an ideal gas is allowed to undergo a free expansion. If the initial volume is 20 cm 3 and the final volume is 100 cm 3 , find the change in entropy. Correct answer: 777 . 054 J / K. Explanation: Given : n = 58 . 1 mol , V 1 = 20 cm 3 , and V 2 = 100 cm 3 . The free expansion is not quasi-static; we have to use a quasi-static process connecting the initial and the final equilibrium states to calculate the change of entropy. Since the two states have the same temperature, we connect them with an isothermal process which gives S = nR ln parenleftbigg V 2 V 1 parenrightbigg = (58 . 1 mol)(8 . 31 J / mol K) ln parenleftbigg 100 cm 3 20 cm 3 parenrightbigg = 777 . 054 J / K ....
