Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page find all choices before answering. The due time is Central time. Please notice that for your homework to be considered towards your grade, it needs to be submitted one hour before the corresponding recitation starts. Work submitted after this time, but before the DUE DATE on top of this page, will be accepted but not graded. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT YOU MUST CARRY OUT YOUR CALCULA- TIONS TO AT LEAST THREE SIGNIFI- CANT FIGURES. YOUR ANSWER MUST BE WITHIN ONE PERCENT OF THE CORRECT RESULT TO BE MARKED AS CORRECT BY THE SERVER. 001 (part 1 of 1) 4 points A sample of ideal gas is expanded to twice its original volume of 1 . 4 m 3 in a quasi-static process for which P = V 2 with = 5 atm / m 6 , V a = 1 . 4 m 3 and V b = 2 . 8 m 3 , as shown in the figure. V P P = ( 5 a t m / m 6 ) V 2 1 . 4 m 3 2 . 8 m 3 How much work was done by the expanding gas? Correct answer: 3 . 24295 10 6 J. Explanation: Given : = 5 atm / m 6 , V a = 1 . 4 m 3 , and V b = 2 . 8 m 3 . The work done by the gas is the area under the curve P = V 2 between V a and V b : W ab = Z b a P dV = Z b a V 2 dV = ( V 3 b- V 3 a ) 3 = (5 atm / m 6 ) (2 . 8 m 3 ) 3- (1 . 4 m 3 ) 3 / 3 = 3 . 24295 10 6 J ....
