Review of Expansion/Compression of Gases

A review of various types of compression and expansion processes is given below. The examples focus on ideal

gases , but most of the equations can also be developed using the various equations of state for real gases. The

examples concentrate on determining the values of the First Law quantities q, w, and

!

"U, and in addition the

enthalpy change

!

"H is also given. In most cases, the processes considered are reversible processes.

I. CONSTANT TEMPERATURE (ISOTHERMAL) PROCESSES

For a reversible isothermal process,

!

w = " P dV

#

Using the ideal gas equation,

!

w = "nRT !n V

/V

( )

or

!

w = "nRT !n P

( ) .

Since

(

T

= 0 for an ideal gas, and

!

dT = 0 for an isothermal process, we have that

!

"U = 0. Then, from the

First Law,

!

q = "w.

Using the definition

!

H = U + PV ,

!

"H = "U + " PV ( ) .

Substituting the ideal gas expression,

!

"H = "U + " nRT ( ) ,

or

!

"H = "U + nR"T .

So, for an isothermal reversible expansion or compression of an ideal gas, since

!

"U = 0 and

!

"T = 0, we also

have that

!

"H = 0.

II. CONSTANT PRESSURE (ISOBARIC) PROCESSES

Since P is constant,

!

w = " P

ext

#V , and if the process is reversible , then

!

w = " P #V .

We showed in class that if

!

C

p

is independent of temperature for an ideal gas, then

!

q

p

= "H = C

p

"T .

From the First Law,

!

"U = q + w = C

p

"T # P "V .

"T # P "V

(For an isobaric process, this is actually the same as

!

III. CONSTANT VOLUME (ISOCHORIC) PROCESSES

Since the process is constant volume,

!

dV = 0. The work is therefore

!

w = " P

ext

dV

#

w = 0.

We showed in class that if

!

C

v

is independent of temperature for an ideal gas, then

!

q

v

= "U = C

v

"T .

From the definition of enthalpy,

!

"H = "U + " PV

( )

= C

v

"T + P"V + V"P.

Since the process is constant volume,

!

"V = 0 and therefore

!

"H = C

v

"T + V"P.

"U = C

w = 0

"U =

"H =

(For an isochoric process, this is actually the same as

IV. ADIABATIC PROCESSES

For an adiabatic process,

!

q = 0 by definition. Then, from the First Law,

!

w = "U.

For an ideal gas, since

!

"U

" V

#

$

%

'

(

T

= 0, we have as long as

!

C

v

is independent of temperature that

!

"U = C

v

"T .

In order to calculate the temperature difference in the equation above, an expression for the initial and final

temperatures must be developed. If the process is reversible, then

!

dw = " P dV .

We also know for an ideal gas that

!

dU = C

v

dT , and for an adiabatic process

!

dU = dw. We can substitute

these two relations to obtain

!

C

v

dT = " P dV .

Using the ideal gas equation for P and integrating yields
