When 1210 J of heat is added to one mole of an ideal monatomic gas, its temperature
increases from 272 K to 276 K. Find the work done by the gas during this process.

as shown in figure above. If V0 = 1.0 m3 and p0 = 40 Pa, how much work is done by
the gas if its pressure changes with the volume via
(a)
path A,
(b)
path B and
(c)
path C?
[Answer: (a) +120 J; (b) +75 J; (c) +30 J]
3.

An ideal gas undergoes the process abca as shown in figure above. The heat gained in
process ab is 546 J, while in process bc the system loses 62 J. In process ab the
system performs 310 J of work, while in process ca work is done on the system in the
amount of 223 J. How much heat is gained by the system in process ca?

is 2.20 106 J/kg and boiling point is 120 C. At this pressure, 1.00 kg of water has a

One gram of water is placed in the cylinder and the pressure is 2.0 10 5 Pa. The

## A monatomic ideal gas at 27 C undergoes a constant pressure process from A to B

and a constant volume process from B to C. Find the total work done during these two
processes.

8.

## A monatomic ideal gas at 27 C undergoes a constant volume process from A to B and

a constant pressure process from B to C. Find the total work done during these two
processes.

point C?

10.

## An ideal gas is in contact with a heat reservoir so that it remains at a constant

temperature of 300.0 K. The gas is compressed from a volume of 24.0 L to a volume
of 14.0 L. During the process, the mechanical device pushing the piston to compress
the gas is found to expend 5.00 kJ of energy. How much heat flows between the heat
reservoir and the gas and in what direction does the heat flow occur?

U 0 because T 0 in a cycle.

## 10. For an isothermal process, U 0. 5.00 kJ of work is done on the gas.

Q U W 0 W 5.00 kJ

Since Q < 0,

the heat flows out of the gas and into the reservoir .
