One mole of an ideal gas, initially at *303.15 *K *(30°C) *and *1 *bar, is changed to *403.15 *K *(130°C) *and *10 *bar by three different mechanically reversible processes:

The gas is first heated at constant volume until its temperature is *403.15 *K *( 1 30°C); *then it is compressed isothermally until its pressure is *10 *bar.

The gas is first heated at constant pressure until its temperature is *403.15 *K *(130°C); *then it is compressed isothermally to *10 *bar.

The gas is first compressed isothermally to *10 *bar; then it is heated at constant pressure to *403.15 *K *(130°C).*

Calculate Q, W, *U, *and *AH*

Step 1

Given data:

Number of moles of an ideal gas = 1

Initial temperature (T_{1}) = 303.15 K

Final temperature (T_{2}) = 403.15 K

Initial pressure (P_{1}) = 1 bar

Final pressure (P_{2}) = 10 bar

The ideal gas is changed from state 1 to state 2 by three different mechanically reversible processes.

Step 2

- In the first case, gas is first heated at constant volume until its temperature is 403.15 K and then compressed isothermally until its pressure is 10 bar.

For an ideal gas, the values of specific heat at constant volume (C_{v}) and at constant pressure (C_{p}) are 2.5 R and 3.5 R respectively.

Where R is the universal gas constant.

For a constant volume process, heat is calculated as follows:

Where n represents the number of moles

C_{v }represents the specific heat at constant volume

T_{1} represents the initial temperature

T_{2} represents the final temperature

The value of universal gas constant (R) = 8.314 J/Mol × K

Plugging the values in equation 1

Step 3

Further gas is compressed isothermally (temperature constant) until pressure is 10 bar.

Work done (W) for this process is calculates as follows:

The ratio of volume can be written in terms of pressure as follows:

Since the gas is ideal and the process is isothermal

Therefore, equation 2 becomes

Plugin the values in equation 3
