One mole of neon gas is heated from 300. K to 420. K at constant pressure. Calculate (a) the energy Q transferred to the gas, (b) the change in the internal energy of the gas, and (c) the work done on the gas. Note that neon has a molar specific heat of c = 20.79 J/mol · K for a constant-pressure process.


To determine
The energy transferred to the system.


Given Info:

Initial temperature of the neon gas is 300K .

Finial temperature of the neon gas is 420K .

The amount of neon gas is 1mol .

Formula to calculate the energy transferred to the system is,


  • ΔT is the change in temperature
  • m is the amount of gas
  • c is the specific heat capacity of neon gas

Substitute 1mol for m, 20


To determine
The change in internal energy of the gas.


To determine
The work done on the gas
