Calculation of Work for Isothermal Expansion of Ideal Gas

Question

Calculate the work for the isothermal expansion of 2.00 moles of an ideal gas along three different paths. (A) A reversible expansion from 25.0 bar and 4.50 L to 4.50 bar. (B) A single-step expansion against a constant external pressure of 4.50 bar. (C) A two-step expansion consisting initially of an expansion against a constant external pressure of 11.0 bar until Pinternal = Pexternal, followed by an expansion against a constant external pressure of 4.50 bar until Pinternal = Pexternal. (D) Explain the differences in your answers and what these differences mean.

Summary

The question belongs to Chemical Engineering and the question deals with isothermal expansion of moles from an ideal gas along three different paths, a reversible expansion, a single step expansion and a two step expansion. The differences have been given in the solution.

    Hello Allison,I love the 2nd image that you did! I also, had never heard of SumoPaint, is something that I will have to exolpre a bit! I understand completely the 52 (or so) youtube videos that you probably watched. Sometimes they have what you want, sometimes they don't! However, it is always satisfying when you are able to produce something that you have taught yourself. Great job!Debra 0 likes
