Unformatted text preview: The first is done for you as an example. Beginning of adiabatic compression: P = __0.2__ V = __8 __ T = PV = __1.6 __ Beginning of isochoric heating: P = ______ V = _____ T = PV = ______ Beginning of adiabatic expansion: P = ______ V = _____ T = PV = ______ Beginning of isochoric cooling: P = ______ V = _____ T = PV = ______ 4) The word “adiabatic” means that no heat enters or leaves the gas. Does the temperature of the gas change during an adiabatic process? If so, and the heat doesn’t enter or leave, where does the heat energy go? 5) Why does the piston move during the compression? 6) Why does the piston move during the expansion? 7) Which is larger, the energy associated with compressing the gas or the energy associated with the expansion of the gas? Why?...
