Attachment preview

Problem 2.34. Show that during the quasi static isothermal expansion of a monatomic ideal gas, the change in entropy is related to the heat input Q by the simple formula.

In the following chapter I’ll prove that this formula is valid for any quasistatic process. Show, however, that it is not valid for the free expansion process described above.

### Unformatted Attachment Preview Problem 2.34:
During the quasistatic isothermal expansion, we have Q = −W , where Q is the heat and W is
the work done.
Integrating the ideal gas law in terms of dV , it follows that

Q = −W

 Q = NkT ( ln V f − ln Vi )

Moreover, the Sackur-Tetrode equation implies that S = Nk ln 
