    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.
