Unformatted text preview: Lecture 11 1 As we have already noted for any ideal gas U=U(T) depends on temperature only. So, for an isothermal process: ΔU=0 for an ideal gas. This implies q+w=0, or -q=w, or - q= w δ δ rev Furthermore, if the process is reversible: - q ln rev w PdV nRTd V δ δ = = - = - 2 rev 1 and: q ln V nRT V = w rev <0 i.e. work done on surroundings For V 2 >V 1 q rev >0 heat entered system to keep gas at constant temperature. Now, consider an adiabatic process to the same final volume. We define adiabatic to be δq=0. If there is no heat flow and we go to the same final volume: T 2 <T 1 (gas must cool!). But by how much? More Thermodynamics (19.4-19.9) Lecture 11 2 Fig 19.5 Isobaric: ΔP=0, path D Isothermal: ΔT=0, path A Adiabatic: δq=0, path B Note for adiabatic path δq=0 which means dU= δw.
