Specific Heat Capacities of Gases

SOLVED EXAMPLES

EXAMPLE 27.1 0.32 g of oxygen is kept a rigid container and is heated. Find the amount of heat needed to raise the temperature from 250 C to 350 C. The molar heat capacity of oxygen at constant volume is 20 J/mol–K. Sol. The moleculer weight of oxygen = 32 g/mol.

0.32 g n = 32 g/mol = 0.01 mol . The amount of heat needed is Q = n Cv T = ( 0.01 mol ) ( 20 J/mol–K ) (10 K) = 2.0 J. EXAMPLE 27.2 A tank of volume 0.2 m 3 contains helium gas at a temperature of 300 K and pressure 1.0 × 10 5 N/m 2 . Find the amount of heat required to raise the temperature to 400 K. The molar heat capacity of helium at constant volume is 3.0 cal/mol–K. Neglect any expansion in the volume of the tank. Sol. The amount of the gas in moles is n=

=

pV RT (1.0  10 5 N/m 2 ) (0.2 m 3 ) = 8.0 mol. (8.31 J / mol  K )(300 K)

The amount of heat required is Q = n C v T = ( 8.0 mol ) ( 3.0 cal/mol–K ) (100 K ) = 2400 cal. EXAMPLE 27.3 The molar heat capacity of a gas at constant volume is found to be 5 cal/mol–K. Find the ratio  = CP – CV for the gas. The gas constant R = 2 cal/mol–K. Sol. We have Cv = 5 cal/mol–K. Thus, CP = Cv + R = 5 cal/mol – K = 7 cal/mol– K

EXAMPLE 27.4 Dry air at 150 C and 10 atm is suddenly released at atmosphere pressure. Find the final temperature of the air [ CP / Cv = 1.4 ]. Sol. As the air is suddenly released, it does not get time to exchange heat with the surrounding. Thus the process is adiabatic. Assuming the process to be reversible,

QUESTIONS

FOR

SHORT

1.

Does a gas have just two specific heat capacities or more than two? Is the number of specific heat capacities of a gas countable?

2.

Can we define specific heat capacity at constant temperature?

3.

Can we define specific heat capacity for an adiabatic process?

4.

Does a solid also have two kinds of molar heat capacities Cp and Cv ? If yes, do we have Cp > Cv ? Cp – Cv = R ?

5.

In a real gas the internal energy depends on temperature and also on volume. The energy increases when the gas expands isothermally. Looking into the derivation of Cp – Cv = R, find whether Cp – Cv will be more than R, less than R or equal to R for a real gas.

6.

Can a process on an ideal gas be both adiabatic and isothermal?

7.

Show that the slope of p–V diagram is greater for an adiabatic process as compared to an isothermal process.

8.

Is a slow process always isothermal? Is a quick process always adiabatic?

9.

Can two states of an ideal gas be connected by an isothermal process as well as an adiabatic process?

10.

The ratio Cp/Cv for a gas is 1.29. What is the degree of freedom of the molecules of this gas?

13.

The molar heat capacity of oxygen gas at STP is nearly 2.5 R. As the temperature is increased, it gradually increases and approaches 3.5 R. The most appropriate reason for this behaviour is that at high temperatures (A) oxygen does not behave as an ideal gas (B) oxygen molecules dissociate in atoms (C) the molecules collides more frequently (D*) molecular vibration gradually become effective ekud rki ,oa nkc (STP) ij vkWDlhtu xSla dh eksyj Å"ek /kkfjrk yxHkx 2.5 R. gSA tc rki c
