Question #346688

1.0 mol of an ideal gas starts at 1.0 atm and 77F and does 1.0 kJ of work during an adiabatic expansion. Calculate the final volume of the gas. Express your answer in litres. In your calculation, fully show the conversion of units. Marks will be given for the necessary conversion factors and every number must have a unit in this problem!

Expert's answer

"pV_1=\\nu RT,\\implies"

"V_1=\\frac{\\nu RT}p=24.4~l,"

"\u2206V=\\frac Qp=9.9~l,"

"V_2=V_1+\u2206V=34.3~l."
