HOTDOG Question 5A

Postby Lexie Baughman 2C » Tue Feb 12, 2019 10:00 pm

Can someone explain why we don't use the Cv for a monatomic ideal gas (3/2R) when calculating the change in entropy that accounts for the temperature change of the system? I have delta S = (3.73 mol)(8.314 J/Kmol)ln(348/323) = 3.48 J/K, which includes R but not the 3/2.

I think you do use Cv,m for this because we are using the equation DeltaS=Cv,m(lnT2/T1).

Thus, for DeltaS for the change in temperature we do (3.73mol)(3/2)(8.3145 J*mol-1*K-1)(ln 348K/323K)
