Unformatted text preview: that is given by and that the result given in Problem 21-6 follows. A. In Problem 21-4, ethane is heated at constant volume, so (assuming ideal behavior) Likewise, in Problem 21-5, the system is kept at constant pressure and so These values correspond to those shown in the diagram. Now, path C represents an isothermal process. Because we are assuming ideal behavior, , which means that . Then we can write as (Equation 20.22) Note that path A is equivalent to the sums of paths B and C, so and , we can write . Because an...
