Textbook Problem

Suppose the volume of an ideal gas is doubled while the pressure is reduced by half. Does the internal energy of the gas increase, decrease, or remain the same? Explain.

To determine
The internal energy of an ideal gas.

Explanation

From the Ideal gas equation, the temperature is,

T=PVnR

  • P is the pressure.
  • R is the gas constant.
  • n is the number of moles.
  • V is the volume.

Internal energy is directly proportional to the temperature
