HW 3. Due: 10/14/11 NO CREDIT WILL BE GIVEN IF WORK IS NOT SHOWN!! Problems from textbook 3.6 A reversible heat engine, operating in a cycle, withdraws heat from a high- temperature reservoir (the temperature of which consequently decreases), performs work w, and rejects heat into a low-temperature reservoir (the temperature of which consequently increases). The two reservoirs are, initially, at the temperatures T 1 and T 2 and have constant heat capacities C 1 and C 2 , respectively. Calculate the final temperature of the system and the maximum amount of work which can be obtained from the engine. 4.1 A rigid container is divided into two compartments of equal volume by a partition. One compartment contains 1 mole of ideal gas A at 1 atm, and the other contains 1 mole of ideal gas B at 1 atm. Calculate the increase in entropy which occurs when the partition between the two compartments is moved. If the first compartment had
