MULTIPLE CHOICE
In the space provided, write the letter of the term or phrase that best completes
each statement or best answers each question.

______ 1. When an ideal gas does positive work on its surroundings, which of
the gas’s quantities increases?
a. temperature c. pressure
b. volume d. internal energy

______ 2. Air cools as it escapes from a diver’s compressed air tank. What kind
of process is this?
a. isovolumetric c. adiabatic
b. isobaric d. isothermal

______ 3. In an isovolumetric process for an ideal gas, the system’s change in the
energy as heat is equivalent to a change in which of the following?
a. temperature c. pressure
b. volume d. internal energy

______ 4. How is conservation of internal energy expressed for a system during


an adiabatic process?
a. Q = W = 0, so U = 0 and Ui = Uf
b. Q = 0, so U = W
c. T = 0, so U = 0; therefore, U = Q  W = 0, or Q = W
d. V = 0, so PV = 0 and W = 0; therefore, U = Q

of energy is added as heat to the gas. What is the change in the sys-
tem’s internal energy?
a. 20 J c. 5 J

______ 7. A heat engine has taken in energy as heat and used a portion of it to
do work. What must happen next for the engine to complete the cycle
and return to its initial conditions?
a. It must give up energy as heat to a lower temperature so work can
be done on it.

be done on it.

SHORT ANSWER

11. A physics textbook is balanced on top of an inflated balloon on a cold morn-


ing. As the day passes, the temperature increases, the balloon expands, and
the textbook rises. Is there a transfer of energy as heat? If so, what is it? Has
any work been done? If so, on what?

12. A gas is confined in a cylinder with a piston. What happens when work is
done on the gas?

13. What changes can be made to the transfer of energy as heat to a heat engine
in order to increase the amount of work done by the engine?

14. Describe how energy is transferred as heat during the part of an engine cycle
where the engine does work on the environment and during the part of the
cycle when work is done on the engine.

15. Use the second law of thermodynamics and the equation for heat engine
efficiency to show why efficiency must always be less than 1.

16. Ice cubes are formed in the freezer compartment of a refrigerator. Explain
the change in entropy of the water freezing, as well as the change in entropy
of the environment outside the refrigerator. Does the water freezes sponta-
neously, and if not, why not?

PROBLEM

17. An ideal gas is maintained at a constant pressure of 7.0  104 N/m2 while
its volume decreases by 0.20 m3. What work is done by the system on its
environment?

18. Over several cycles, a refrigerator compressor does work on the refrigerant.
This work is equivalent to a constant pressure of 4.13  105 Pa compressing a
circular piston with a radius of 0.019 m a distance of 25.0 m. If the change in
the refrigerant’s internal energy is 0 J after each cycle, how much heat will the
refrigerant remove from within the refrigerator?

19. A steam engine takes in 2.06  105 J of energy added as heat and exhausts
1.53  105 J of energy removed as heat per cycle. What is its efficiency?

20. The gas within a cylinder of an engine undergoes a net change in volume of
1.50  103 m3 when it does work at a constant pressure of 3.27  105 Pa.
If the efficiency of the engine is 0.225, how much work must the engine give
up as heat to the low-temperature reservoir?
