Answer to Question #3129 in Physical Chemistry for lfain
(a) isothermally and reversibly and
(b) isothermally and irreversibly under a constantexternal pressure of 1.0 atm.
pV = nRT
V = nRT/p
V1 = 0.35×0.082×288.6/0.1 = 82.83 L = 0.08282 m3
V2 = 0.35×0.082×288.6/1 = 8.283 L = 0.008282 m3
(a) isothermally and reversibly
W = ΔG = −nRT ln(V2/V1) = 0.35×8.314×288.6 ln(0.008282/0.08282) = 1933.7 J
(b) isothermally and irreversibly under a constant external pressure of 1.0 atm.
W = ΔG = −p(V2 − V1) = 1.01 × 105(0.008282 − 0.08282) = 7528.3 J
