Unformatted text preview: The volume expansivity and isothermal compressibility are not always listed in handbooks of data. However, is three times the linear expansion coefficient , and is the reciprocal of the bulk modulus B . For this problem, assume that the volume expansivity and isothermal compressibility remain practically constant within the temperature range of 0 to 20 o C at the values of 4.95 x 105 K1 and 6.17 x 1012 Pa1 , respectively. 4) A block of copper at a pressure of 1 atm, a volume of 100 cm 3 , and a temperature of 10 o C experiences a rise in temperature of 5 o C and an increase in volume of 0.005 cm 3 . Assuming the volume expansivity and isothermal compressibility given in the problem above, calculate the final pressure. 5) For a solid, experiments show that: Å ½ ÈÉÂÊËÃ Ì , Í ½ ËÂ Ì with B, C consts. Derive the equation of state for this solid....
