1. 5 mol of a perfect gas is stored in a cylinder. Its C V,m is 2.5R. The cylinder is insulated except at the bottom, where it can exchange heat with a large piece of metal. Initially, the temperature and pressure of the gas are 25 o C and 3 bar, respectively. Then, the gas is allowed to expand isothermally against the external pressure maintained at 1 bar. When the piston stops, determine: (a) what is the work done by the gas? (b) how much heat is removed from the metal? (c) what are U, H, and S (1 bar = 10 5 kg/m/sec 2 , 1 J = 1 kg m 2 /sec 2 .) q Insulated wall Insulated piston Metal Solution.
