    A 0.5 mol of an adiabatic monotonic ideal gas in a container at 250kPa and 350K is allowed to expand in either of the follow: a) reversibly or b) against a constant pressure of 150kPa until a final pressure of 150kPa is reached.
    Please find the final temperature, delta U, delta H, q, and w for each process (a and b).

    First of all, we must assume that this gas is under going constant volume.

    (a) Thus, for an ideal gas at constant volume ( in a container), we have the following:
    (pfinal / pinitial) = (Tfinal / T initial)

    Solving ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution finds the temperature and delta measures for when monotonic ideal gas either expands reversibly or against a constant pressure in a container.
