HW: 8.11 (b)

Postby Yinhan_Liu_1D » Wed Jan 18, 2017 7:28 pm

Hi, dear class,

I looked up the solution manual. It is using the formula involving logarithm (which is on the formula sheet too).

However, we have not talked about this in class before. Should we know how it is derived? Or we just need to know and use the formula when it comes to reversible expansion.

Hello,
I did not see how it was derived anywhere in the notes but it is mentioned in the textbook example to use that equation when it is reversible and the temperature does not change. I believe we just need to know how to apply that equation and understand the difference between reversible and nonreversible reactions. Hope this was a little helpful
