Due to the second midterm, we will have just one long problem set due on Dec. 18. We strongly suggest that you start on this unit soon. At least do some Knight reading and some Learning Guide problems.
Problem 10.1 Fermi, pg 10, number 1
Problem 10.2 Fermi, pg 10, number 4
Problem 10.3 Fermi, pg 45, number 3
Problem 10.4 A vertical cylinder 2.5 m tall is filled with 0.08 moles of an ideal gas at STP. Next, a piston of mass 1.5 kg is added to one end of the cylinder compressing the gas somewhat. It seals the cylinder but is free to move vertically. (1)What is the equilibrium height of the piston assuming that the gas is isothermal. (2)The piston is now displaced slightly and released. What is the frequency of oscillation?
Problem 10.5 Knight 19-72
Problem 10.6 Entropy is a state variable.
Problem 10.7 An ideal diatomic gas is taken through the cycle shown in the figure below. Determine for all three processes, in terms of p1, V1, T1, and R,
Problem 10.8 One mole of a monatomic ideal gas is taken through the reversible cycle shown in the (not-to-scale) figure below. Process bc is an adiabatic expansion, with pb=10.0 atm and Vb=1.00×10 -3 m3. Find:
