reversible reactions

Postby 705121606 » Tue Feb 04, 2020 9:45 pm

For reversible reactions the equation for work is w=-nrtln(v2/v1)
When it says that it can expand reversibly to the same final volume, does that just mean volume two is just double volume one?

It depends on the volumes given. That could be possible, but I think it means that, in comparison to an irreversible reaction, both reactions can reach the same final volume. However, the reversible reaction occurs slowly, that's why the equations are different. More work is done in this instance as well.

how could we calculate V2?
