Unformatted text preview: const . Deduce that, for an adiabatic process (with dS = 0), V T α is constant and, equivalently,
pV γ is constant, where γ = Cp /CV .
4. This question describes the Joule-Thomson process (also known as the Joule-Kelvin
process). The ﬁgure shows a thermally insulated pipe which has a porous barrier
separating two halves of the pipe. A gas of volume V1 , initially on the left-hand side
of the pipe, is forced by a piston to go through the porous barrier using a constant
pressure p1 . Assume the process can be treated...
