Worksheet: Thermodynamic Changes in Ideal Gases

Q1:

A gas with a mass of 0.125 kg is contained in a rigid container with a volume of 2.5 m3. The gas is heated, increasing its temperature by 35 K and also increasing its pressure, as shown in the diagram. Calculate the change in the internal energy of the gas due to its heating. Use a value of 1.75 kJ/kg K for the specific heat capacity of a constant volume of the gas. Assume the heating of the container is negligible. Answer to three significant figures.

  • A 1 1 3 0 0 J
  • B 5 0 0 0 J
  • C 8 7 5 0 0 J
  • D 7 6 6 0 J
  • E 2 4 6 0 0 J
