Constant P vs Constant V

Postby MorganYun1H » Tue Jan 09, 2018 8:38 pm

I know that when P is constant, q=deltaH for the reaction. What happens when V is constant? Is there a certain relationship between these two?

From what I understand, q=cdeltaT regardless of constant V or P; however, the C constants would differ in these two distinguishable scenarios.

I discussed this earlier today online. See previous posts.
Summary:



When volume is constant then and w = 0.

Therefore = qv

I will discuss all of this in detail in class next week when we start thermodynamics.

This week we are covering the 2nd half of Chapter 8 which is thermochemistry.
