One tenth kilogram of Argon is contained in a piston-cylinder assembly. Initially at 4900 K and a volume of 40 liters, the gas undergoes an isobaric process during which the heat input is 30 kJ. Determine the boundary work and final temperature.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 5:37 pm ad1c9bdddf
The first law of thermodynamics says:
U2 -U1 = Q -W
W = P(v2-v1)
m = 0.1 kg of argon
T1 = 4900 K
V1 = 40 LT
The solution provides a step-by-step explanation of how to find the boundary work and final temperature in a piston cylinder after the gas undergoes an isobaric process using the first law of thermodynamics.
