1. Consider the reversible expansion of a perfect gas. Provide a physical interpretation for the

fact that pV = constant for an adiabatic change, whereas pV = constant for an isothermal
change. Explain the significance of a physical observable being a state function and compile
a list of as many state functions as you can identify.
If H is constant with temperature T1 dan T2 integral can intergration. If not, ketergantungan
temperatur dari H harus disubtitusi dan kemudian evaluasi integral analitis atau grafik
dapat dibuat.
a. Adiabatic Change
The pressure of a perfect gas that undergoes reversible adiabatic expersion from a volume V1
to a volume Vf is related to its mital pressure by PfVf = PiVi .
Where = Cp1m/Cv1m. This result is summarized in the from PV

= konstan, for a

monoatomic perfect gas, Cv1m = 5/2 R and from Cp1m = 5/3 R, = 5/3, for a gas fall more
slearply (Px 1/v ) than the corresponding isotherm (P 1/v). The physical reason for the
difference is that, in an isothermal expansion, energy flows into the system as heat and
maintains the temperature, as in result the pressure does not fall as much as in an adiabatic
b. Isothermal reversible expension
Consider the isothermal, reversible expension of a perfect gas. The expensions of a perfect
gas. The expensions is made isothermal by heeping the system in thermal contact with its
sumoundings (which may be a constant-temperatur bath). Because the equation of state
PV-nRT, we knoww that at each stage P=nRT/V, with V the volume at that stage of the
expension. The temperature T is constant in an isothermal expension, so (together with n and
R) it may be takes outside the integral. It follows that the week of reversible isothermal
expension of a perfecct gas from Vi and Vf at a temperature T is


2. Suggest (with explanation) how the internal energy of a van der Waals gas should vary with
volume at constant temperature.
The fundamenta; equation of thermodinamics which combines the first and the second law of

Another important equation is known as the Tds equation (there two of them) which can be
derivated starting with the exat differential of S = S (T,V), multiplying both sides by T and
using the Maxwell equation, ( )

( ) , reminding that Cv = T ( ) is the heat

capacity at constant volume,


Combine equation,

this means that,


3. A sample consisting of 2.00 mol He is expanded isothermally at 22C from 22.8 dm3 to 31.7

gas, and (c) freely (against zero external pressure). For the three processes calculate q, w,
U, and H.
For a perfect gas at constant temperature,

For a perfect gas at constant temperature, H is also zero, H= 0

U does not change at constant temperature, PV if the gas obeys Boyles law. hese apply to
all three cases below:

found to vary with temperature according to the expression Cp /(J K1) = 20.17 +
0.4001(T/K). Calculate q, w, U, and H when the temperature is raised from 0C to 100C

we know that :
w = n R T, because T is zero so W is zero (0)

8. You received an unsolicited proposal from a self-declared inventor who is seeking investors
for the development of his latest idea: a device that uses heat extracted from the ground by a
heat pump to boil water into steam that is used to heat a home and to power a steam engine
that drives the heat pump. This procedure is potentially very lucrative because, after an initial
extraction of energy from the ground, no fossil fuels would be required to keep the device
running indefinitely. Would you invest in this idea? State your conclusion clearly and present
detailed arguments to support it.
Yes, i would be inverst in this idea. Because this procedur is patenally very lucrative, because
