1) Calculate w and Delta E for the expansion of 20.0g of nitrogen gas from a volume of 30.0 L to a volume of 40.0 L at a constant 300.0K.

From the first Law of thermodynamics

Delta E = q + w, where q = heat, and w = work

For an isothermal process (carried out at constant temperature) on an ideal gas, E depends entirely upon temperature, and so Delta E = 0, and w = -q.

However, w = -nRTln(V2/V1), where n = moles of N2 (calculated by mass /molar mass) R = 8.314 J/Kmol, T = 300 K, V2 = 40 L and V1 = 30 L.

2) The density of ice at its normal freezing temperature is 0.917g/mL while that of liquid water at the same temperature is 0.9998 g/mL . If Delta H(fusion) of ice is 6.009 kJ/mol, what is Delta E(fusion). Using similar thermodynamic equations Delta E = qp + w = DeltaH - PextDeltaV?

qp is the definition of Delta H, and w is defined as the change involume against and external pressure,

w = -Pext(DeltaV)

The external pressure is assumed to be 1 atm which = 101.325 J

The densities of both water and ice need to be divided by the mass of one mole to find the volume in mL, but since they are both divided by the same number, a ratio will work just the same.

Volume of water (0.9998 g/mL)/(18 g/mol) * 1000 mL/L =

Volume of ice (0.917 g/mol)(18 g/mol) * 1000 mL/L =

Delta E = 6009 J - (101.325 J)(0.9998/0.917)

3) The heat of fusion of potassium bromide is 20.9 kJ/mol. If the ...
