Would the previous question make any sense for an isochoric process? Explain your answer
No, the previous equation is senseless in this case.
For an isochoric process, the volume remains unchanged that is \(\Delta V = 0\).
So, no work is done. Hence the previous question will be senseless in this case of the Isochoric process.
(a) On a winter day, a certain house loses 5.00×108 J of heat to the outside (about 500,000 Btu). What is the total change in entropy due to this heat transfer alone, assuming an average indoor temperature of 21.0 ºC and an average outdoor temperature of 5.00 ºC ? (b) This large change in entropy implies a large amount of energy has become unavailable to do work. Where do we find more energy when such energy is lost to us?
