Thermodynamic Pathways: an Example • Example 9.2. We take 2.00 mol of an ideal monatomic gas undergo the following: – Initial (State A): P A = 2.00 atm, V A = 10.0 L – Final (State B): P B = 1.00 atm, V B = 30.0 L We’ll do this two ways: Path 1 : Expansion then Cooling Path 2 : Cooling then Expansion

Thermodynamic Jargon • When doing pathways, we usually keep one variable constant. The language used to indicate what is held constant is: – Isobaric: Constant Pressure Δ P=0 – Isothermal: Constant Temperature Δ P=0 – Isochoric: Constant Volume
