### Re: DeltaU and DeltaH

\Delta U=\Delta H occurs when the volume is constant. If you want to derive this, the equation for \Delta U is \Delta U=\Delta H-P\Delta V . Thus, when there is no change in volume, \Delta V=0 and so P\Delta V=0 . Thus, \Delta U=\Delta H . Not 100% sure, but I hope this helped. Hi, I'm looking back...

### Re: (DeltaU)=q+w Isothermal

At constant volume, work=0, so q=delta U

At constant Temperature, q= -w, so delta U and delta H equal 0

At constant Heat, change in heat is equal to zero, so w= delta U. Also, entropy under this condition would be 0.

The equation for Degeneracy is the number of micro-states to the power of the number of molecules. When calculating moles, you would do the number of micro-states to the power of 6.022*10^23 times the number of moles. So, if you were calculating the degeneracy for 4 molecules with 6 different micro-...

### Re: 9.13

I think that "ideal behavior" means we assume the gas molecules have negligible volume, so it would pertain to 1 mole of gas.

I know that for sure when a problem says to assume ideal behavior and they don't tell you the mass though, 1 mole of gas should be assumed.
