Shows two different processes taking an ideal gas from state i to state f.
Is the work done on the gas in process A greater than, less than, or equal to the work done in process B? Explain.
The work done of A process is greater than the work done of B process
Work done of a rigid body define the positive work for increasing kinetic energy that make a resultant force act on the rigid body.
The work done has been seen due to transfers of energy between system and environment. It is positive when the energy transfer from environment to system and negative when the energy goes from system to environment
The work done in the pV graph, W is negative area between and .
in the A process, the area is large as well as work done is larger than B process. due to this reason, The work done of A process is greater than the work done of B process
FIGURE P19.62 shows a thermodynamic process followed by of helium.
a. Determine the pressure (in ), temperature (in ), and volume in of the gas at points 1,2 , and 3 . Put your results in a table for easy reading.
b. How much work is done on the gas during each of the three segments?
c. How much heat energy is transferred to or from the gas during each of the three segments?
