## Reversible Expansion Homework Questions

$w=-P\Delta V$
and
$w=-\int_{V_{1}}^{V_{2}}PdV=-nRTln\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}$

### Reversible Expansion Homework Questions

I know this might be a bit late, but in preparation for the upcoming midterm, I had trouble looking for problems dealing specifically with reversible expansion of ideal gases (ex: $w = -nRT(ln\frac{V_{f}}{V_{I}})$)

Can someone point me to any good examples they found in the textbook? Thanks!

### Re: Reversible Expansion Homework Questions

In chapter 8, dealing with the first law, there are problems dealing with reversible reactions of gas. Part (b) in the questions 8.11-8.12 deal with this topic. Neither one of these seem to be too intense, but the concept and the use of the equation is present. There are not many other problems in the book that pertain to this.
