###### Question details

**Determine the FINAL STATE after the expansion for case
A, B, C, and D.**

Calculate the work that 1 mol of a diatomic gas produces when it expands from its initial volume of 5 L and 31.5 ◦C to:

CASE A: work that 1 mol of a diatomic gas produces when it
expands from its initial volume of 5 L and 31.5 ◦C to: *a final
volume of 25 L reversibly and isothermically*.

CASE B: work that 1 mol of a diatomic gas produces when it
expands from its initial volume of 5 L and 31.5 ◦C to:
*irreversibly and isothermically against an external pressure of
1 atm.*

CASE C: work that 1 mol of a diatomic gas produces when it
expands from its initial volume of 5 L and 31.5 ◦C to: *a final
volume of 25 L reversibly and adiabatically.*

CASE D: work that 1 mol of a diatomic gas produces when it
expands from its initial volume of 5 L and 31.5 ◦C to:
*irreversibly and adiabatically against an external pressure of
1 atm.*
