Unformatted text preview: b) What is the relative change in volume of the system (in other words, what is V 2 /V 1 )? Ideal gas law: P 1 V 1 = nRT = P 2 V 2 since n and T are constant Therefore P 1 V 1 = P 2 V 2 and V 2 /V 1 = P 1 /P 2 = 1 atm / 2 atm = 0.5 c) What is ΔE in Joules? ΔE = C v ΔT = 0 because ΔT = 0 d) What is ΔH in Joules? ΔH = C p ΔT = 0 because ΔT = 0 e) What is Δ(PV) in Joules? Δ(PV) = Δ(nRT) = nR Δ(T) = 0 because ΔT = 0 f) What is w in Joules? w =  ∫ p dV =  ∫ nRT dV = nRT ∫ dV = nRT ln (V 2 /V 1 ) V V w =  (0.1 mol) (8.314 J mol1 K1 ) (25+273.15) K (ln 0.5) = +172 J g) What is q in Joules? Which way is heat transferred (to the system or out of the system)? q = ΔE – w = 0 – 172 J = 172 J. Negative value means heat out of the system. You have to show your work.
