# Expansion of gas

Question:

The volume of 1 mole of an ideal, monoatomic gas which is initially at 2 atm, 25"C, and 12.2L is doubled by the following paths:

a) isothermal expansion;

b) adiabatic expansion;

c) expansion along a path defined by P=0. 2V+b, where p is in atm, Vis in L/mol, and b is a constant.

Assume that all paths are reversible, Calculate the final pressure for each path.
