Test 1

$w=-P\Delta V$
and
$w=-\int_{V_{1}}^{V_{2}}PdV=-nRTln\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}$

Will there be reversible processes on Test 1?

No, I do not believe so. If I remember correctly, on Friday, he said we will not need to know about reversible processes as we will go over it on Monday.

Re: Test 1

Are the reversible reactions the maximum work possible expansions?

Re: Test 1

I also remember Dr Lavelle saying that isothermal reversible expansion of a gas will not be on the test; and yes, reversible expansion of a gas causes the gas to do the maximum amount of work in expanding.
