Ideal Behavior

Postby Lauryn Shinno 2H » Fri Feb 08, 2019 9:38 pm

For 9.13 in the 6th edition, it says "During the test of an internal combustion engine, 3.00 L of nitrogen gas at 18.5 degrees C was compressed suddenly and irreversibly to 0.5 L by driving in a piston. In the process, the temperature of the gas increased to 28.1 degrees C. Assume ideal behavior. What is the change in entropy of the gas?" I know I'm supposed to use delta S=nR(ln(v2/v1)), but moles aren't given. Does "assume ideal behavior" mean 1.00 mol?

Yes, the solution says "Assume ideal behavior and 1 mol N2 gas."

I was going to ask the same thing, should we always take "ideal conditions" to mean 1 mol of gas and pressure=1 atm?

If not stated otherwise, then such assumption would be sufficient.
