Evaluation 9.3A

Postby Mariane Sanchez 1E » Mon Feb 05, 2018 2:59 pm

The question says: "Calculate the change in molar entropy of an ideal gas when it is compressed isothermally to one-third its initial volume." They got an answer of 9.13J/K.mol. Can someone please explain how they got that?

Vi = 1 L
Vf = 3 L

Then use the equation delta S = R ln(Vf/Vi)

When something is compressed isothermally, you use the equation qrev/T!
