Winter 2011 Chemistry 163B 1 Homework #2 Problems (#6-#15) 6. E&R P2.6 AND calculate q for each of the irreversible and reversible processes in parts a and b. 7. One mole of ideal gas is heated reversibly at a constant pressure of 1 atm from 273.15 K to 373.15 K a. Compute the work involved in the process b. If the gas were expanded reversibly and isothermally at 273.15 K from an initial pressure of 1 atm, what would the final pressure need to be in order to equal the work calculated in part a? 8. A gas has the equation of state ! " PV RT T P # $% . For 1 mole of the gas: a. Show that for a reversible expansion between T 1 and T 2 at constant pressure P, the work done is: ! " ! " ! " ! " 12 1 2 wRTT T T P ## $& % & b. Show that for a reversible expansion between V 1 and V 2 at constant temperature T, the work done is: 1 2 () ln '( & $ ±* & VT wR T 9. One mole of ideal gas at 298 K is in a piston at a pressure of 100 atm. a. What is the work done by the gas if it expands isothermally against a constant pressure of 10 atm? b. What is the total work done by the gas if the piston expands against constant pressure in 3 stages, reaching equilibrium between each stage: first against 50 atm, then against 20 atm, and finally against 10 atm.
