Unformatted text preview: system. b) The state property one refers to when discussing the frequency and strength of collisions between gas molecules and the walls of the vessel containing the gas is the pressure. c) To obtain the root mean squared speed of gas molecules in m/s, it is necessary to use the temperature in kelvin, the molar mass in kg/mol and R = 8.3145 J/mol.K. d) For an ideal gas, the quantity α is equal to 1/T. e) Euler’s chain (or cyclic) rule applied to the state variables X, Y and Z is: (∂X/∂Y)Z (∂Y/∂Z)X (∂Z/∂X)Y =  1 f) A, B and C are three different states of a system. If the change in energy ΔUAB from state A to state B is +...
