Unformatted text preview: Department of Chemical Engineering ChE 210A University of California, Santa Barbara Fall 2011 Problem Set No. 5 Due: Monday, ctober 31, 2011 Objective : To understand and manipulate the thermodynamic properties of ideal and nonideal gases, and to understand relationships between thermodynamic variables at phase equilibrium. 1. Statistical antics : Fast-forward 25 years into the future. What scientific or technological advance do you think will have had the biggest positive impact on the human condition? (a) nanomachines and new nanomaterials; (b) stem cells and regenerative medicine; (c) new energy sources (e.g., solar, fusion); (d) personalized medicine and genetic diagnostics & therapies; (e) robots, artificial intelligence, and quantum computers; and (f) low-cost space exploration. 2. Conceptual problem (1 point). Consider the exact, quantum-mechanical expressions for ideal gases derived in class. Write an expression for the function gG, that includes the parameter G . ....
