ME 501 Translational Partition Function Example Problem Calculate the entropy per kmol of monatomic hydrogen gas at 400 K, 100 kPa pressure. Remember that for monatomic hydrogen there are translational, electronic, and nuclear contributions to the entropy. The value listed by Sonntag and Van Wylen, Introduction to Thermodynamics: Classical and Statistical for the absolute entropy is 120.825 kJ/kmol-K.

Unformatted text preview: Which contributions do SVW include in their table? (Answer: translational and electronic, nuclear not included). Derive an expression for the translational enthalpy from the partition function. Calculate the enthalpy change for monatomic hydrogen between 400 K and 298 K and compare with the value of 2117 kJ/kmol listed in SVW....

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
