Constant Volume

Postby JamesAntonios 1E » Fri Mar 16, 2018 12:29 am

Is this correct? So I know that when volume is constant, work is zero. However, for a reaction with changing pressure and moles, but constant volume, that is behaving ideally, we can relate deltaPV=delta nRT, in which there would be work, right?

This sounds correct to me! We did a review problem with Professor Lavelle similar to this for the midterm.

yes, because is possible to do work on a system without changing the volume
