Find the expansion work resulting when the volume of a gas increases from 1 ft3 to 5 ft3 against a constant pressure of 1 atm. Express the answer in Joules.

Interpretation Introduction

Interpretation:

To determine the Expansion of work at constant pressure

Concept introduction:

The expansion work at constant pressure as,

WE=V1V2PdV=P(V2V1)

Explanation of Solution

Given information:

Initial volume of the gas is 1 ft3.

Final volume of the gas is 5 ft3

Constant pressure is 1 atm.

Calculate the expansion work.

WE=V1V2PdV=P(V2V1)        (1)

Here, constant pressure is P, initial and final volume is V1andV2 respectively.

Substitute 1 atm for P, 1ft3 for V1, and 5ft3 for V2 in Equation (1)
