Monoatomic Gas

Postby Christine Chen 1H » Wed Mar 13, 2019 9:55 pm

Does a monoatomic ideal gas indicate constant pressure or constant temperature?

It depends? A monoatomic ideal gas can be at constant T or constant P.

I believe Lavelle once said in class before a test or the midterm to assume all gases are monoatomic unless told otherwise, is this still true for the final ?

A monoatomic ideal gas can be under conditions of constant T, constant P, and/or constant V, depending on the system presented to you. A monoatomic ideal gas is just an ideal gas (obeys PV = nRT) which has only 1 atom (Ne (g), Ar (g), etc.)

Hope this helps! :)
