Question details


Consider an ideal gas in a piston chamber, where the initial volume is 2.00 L and the initial pressure is 8.00 atm. Assume that the piston is moving up (that is, the system is expanding) to a final volume of 5.50 L against a constant external pressure of 1.75 atm. Also assume constant temperature for the process. a) Calculate the work for the process (ans: 621 J) b) Calculate the final pressure of the gas (ans: 2.91 atm)
