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 E in Joules? E = C v T = 0 because T = 0 d) What is H in Joules? H = C p T = 0 because T = 0 e) What is (PV) in Joules? (PV) = (nRT) = nR (T) = 0 because T = 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 mol-1 K-1 ) (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 = E w = 0 172 J = -172 J. Negative value means heat out of the system. You have to show your work.
