Homework Problem 8.93
Posted: Wed Jan 25, 2017 9:38 am
For 8.93, it says to calculate the work that must be done against the atmosphere for the expansion of the gaseous products in the combustion of 1 mol C6H6 at 25 degrees C and 1 bar. So I figured that I would use the formula w=-P'delta'V and replace it to instead use w=-'delta'nRT. Looking at the solutions, somehow they got 1.5 for the change in moles. How does this work?
