Even if the numerical answer to c) is wrong, you get full credit for this part if your reasoning is correct (you don’t get penalized twice)…10 points A: Correct answer with reasoning, but missing Δ’s in one or more terms of ΔU = ΔEth + ΔEbond = ΔEth, for example, stating that Ebond = 0…9.5 points T: Correct answer with incorrect or no reasoning…8.5 points W : ΔU = ΔEth + ΔEbond = ΔEth, wrong or no numerical answer, but correct justification…8.5 points Y: ΔU = ΔEth, ΔEbond = 0, no or wrong numerical answer, and no reasoning…6.5 points E: Used some related equation like ΔU =(3/2)nRT, or ΔU = Q+W and using given Q, and W = b*h…5 points R: Incorrect response…3 points Z: No response... 0 points e) 20% Q: Used W = ΔU – Q, plugged in answer from d) and the given Q to get W, and got a negative W as expected. Even if the numerical answer to d) was incorrect, you get full credit (you don’t get penalized twice)…10 points W: Correct idea, but numerical errors, but correct sign for W…9 points Y: Wrong sign for W (+ instead of  ­)…6 points E: W = area of the rectangle , or stated that the areas curved parts cancelled out, so W = base*height…7 points R: Not much progress, stated W =  ­Integral of (PdV) or W = Q+W…4 points A: Incorrect response, such as areas under curve cancel out so W = 0…4 points T: No response…0 points ...
