Textbook Problem

For an ideal gas in an isothermal process, there is no change in internal energy. Suppose the gas does work W during such a process. How much energy is transferred by heat?

To determine
The energy transferred by heat.

Explanation

The internal energy of an ideal gas is only depends of the temperature. The temperature of a system will not change in an isothermal process.

The First law of thermodynamics is given by,

ΔU=Q+W

  • ΔU is the change in internal energy
  • Q is the energy transferred
  • W is the work done

The internal energy of an ideal gas depends only on temperature
