1. Gas within a closed chamber undergoes the cycle shown in the p-V diagram.
(a) What is the net change of internal energy in the cycle?
(b) What is the net change of entropy?
(c) Is the net energy added or extracted from the system in the form of heat? Calculate the heat.
Solution
Eint = 0, S = 0
Q = W = (50

3. One mole of oxygen O2 is heated at constant pressure starting at 273 K (0 C). How
much energy must be added to the gas as heat to double its volume? Hint : f = 5.
Solution
Q = nCp (Tf

4. An ideal diatomic gas, whose molecules are rotating but not oscillating (f = 5), is
taken through the following cycle:
(p1 ,V1 ,T1)
isothermal
(p2 ,V2 ,T1 )
→
isochoric
→
(p3 ,V2 ,T3)
→
(p1 ,V1 ,T1)
where
V2 = 3V1
(a) Sketch the p-V diagram.
(b) Determine p2 , p3 , and T3 in terms of p1 and T1.
Solution
p1 V1 = p2 V2 ⇒ p2 = p1
p3 V2
