Re: Reading the textbook [ENDORSED]

Yes, I think some of the formulae are a bit different but not by much. For example in the specific heat equation, n is used for grams in the course reader whereas it is given as g (for grams) in the textbook.

Re: Reversable

Is there any example in the course reader of an irreversible process, besides what is stated about it on page 33? I'd like to have a better understanding of it.

Re: Work Equation, changing V and P

Yes, Boyle's law states that at a constant temperature, the volume of a fixed amount of gas is inversely proportional to the pressure. In other words, V∝1/P.

Re: Peer Facilitated Learning Sessions

Just to be sure, are the learning sessions a weekly commitment or are we able to drop in for help any time we need? And if we're thinking of joining a group where can we find information on when and where we would meet?
