350J of heat are absorbed by system (425 cal of work done), compute changes in the internal energy & interpret the sign of your results.

When 2.5 moles of N2(g) is heated in a piston, constant pressure of 2.25 atm 0ºC-->319ºC. Calulate work in J

1.

350-425=-75J=change in internal energy, negative sign means the system lose 75J energy

2.

Since N_{2} is a diatomic gas. THus, the value of molar specific heat constant at constant pressure, C_{p} = 7R/2

where R = Universal gas constant = 8.314

Thus, C_{p} = 29.099

Now, work done = n*C_{P}*dT ; where dT = change in temperature = 319

Thus, work done = 2.5*29.099*319 = 23206.453 J
