Unformatted text preview: d the other evacuated; the partition between the two compartments is suddenly removed. Is the work done during an infinitesimal portion of this process (called adiabatic free expansion) equal to ∙ ? 3) a) Calculate the work done upon expansion of 1 mol of gas quasi‐statically and isothermally from volume vi to a volume vf when the equation of state is where a and b are the van der Waals constants. b) If a=1.4 x 109 N m4/mol2 and b=3.2 x 10‐5 m3/mol, how much work is done when the gas expands from a volume of 10...
