9.13 Entropy Change

Postby Vanessa Romero-Campos 2B » Fri Jan 26, 2018 11:15 pm

During the test of an internal combustion engine,3.00 L of nitrogen gas at 18.5 degrees Celsius was compressed suddenly and irreversibly to 0.500 L by driving in a piston. in the process, the temperature of the gas increased to 28.1 degrees celsius. Assume ideal behavior. what is the change in entropy of gas?

I know I have to calculate the entropy change relating to the change in volume and then the change relating to temperature and add them together. What i do not understand is how to find the value of n in delta S= n*R*ln T2/T1 and delta S=n*R*ln v2/v1

The problem doesn't give us the number of moles, but the solutions manual says to assume n = 1 mol.

Since it states ideal behavior, we can assume that it is 1 mole of substance.
