Topic 01 States of Gases A state of matter consisting of particles that does not have a defined volume or a defined shape In a closed container particles in the gas phase will fill the entire volume and the collection will assume the shape of the container Compared to liquids and solids of the same material gas particles are spread far apart have much lower density and have much weaker intermolecular interactions Ideal Gas A gas in which there are no intermolecular interactions between the particles An ideal gas is perfectly described by the ideal gas equation of state pV nRT State A condition of the system in which all essential variables state variables are specifically defined Equation ofState An algebraic equation that relates the values of the state variables in a fixed state For an ideal gas the equation of state is given above pV nRT State Variables for Gases The state of a gas can be described by four state variables p pressure V volume n number of moles and Tabsolute temperature R is the universal gas constant Values of only three state variables are required to define a state the value of the fourth variable can be determined using the equation of state 1 n number of moles of gas specifies the chemical amount of substance Two common calculations used to determine the number of moles include a the total number of particles N divided by Avogadro39s number NA n NNA b the mass m divided by the molar mass M n mM 2 V volume is defined by the physical threedimensional volume of the container Sometimes an imaginary container can be used for example when discussing 1 liter of air in the atmosphere 3 p pressure is defined in physics as the magnitude of the force F acting on a surface per unit area of the surface on which the force acts A p FA Units Units of pressure must be consistent with units of force divided by units of area There are many valid units for pressure that meet this requirement The specific problem or situation will determine which units are best Common units of pressure include pascal Pa bar atmospheres atm torr Torr millimeters of mercury mmHg and pounds per square inch psi It is extremely important to be able to correctly convert between various units of pressure whenever necessary Mechanical equilibrium and pressure Consider a moveable wall with two pressures acting on it from either side pL from the left side and pR from the right side If the pressures are not equal the wall will be pushed by the side with higher pressure toward the side with lower pressure The wall will not quit moving until the pressures on both sides are equal When the wall is no longer pushed in one direction or other it is said to be in mechanical equilibrium and the opposing pressures must be equal Topic 01 States of Gases Page 1 O P E N SYSTEM Figure 1 Cartoon depicting the key elements of a manometer See text for details Measuring pressure via a manometer The manometer is a laboratory device used to measure pressure by difference A cartoon of a typical manometer is shown above The manometer is filled with a liquid of known density typically water or mercury It is open to the atmosphere on one side left side above and is attached to the closed system on the other On the side where the liquid level is higher the liquid will contribute a net downward pressure due to gravitational force The net pressure m the liquid is given by pliq pgAh where p is the liquid39s density 9 is earth39s gravitational constant 9 980665 m 5392 exactly and Ah is the difference between the two liquid heights If the liquid is mercury and the difference in height is measured in mm the pressure contributed by the mercury is simply equal to Ah in units of mmHg or Torr When the liquid in the manometer reaches mechanical equilibrium ie is not moving the pressure on the left side must be equal to the pressure on the right side The pressure contributed by the liquid is always positive and is included on the side where the liquid level is higher In the above illustration peft patm the external atmospheric pressure pright psys pliq These must be equal therefore patm psys pliq Measuring pressure via a gauge A tire gauge does not measure the actual air pressure in the tire it measures the difference between the actual pressure and the ambient pressure The true air pressure in the tire is the sum of the gauge pressure plus the ambient pressure 4 T absolute temperature is the property that reflects the amount of kinetic energy within the component particles The direction of heat flow between two objects is defined by differences in temperature heat always flows from higher temperature to lower temperature Diathermic and Adiabatic Boundaries Diathermic boundaries permit heat to flow and to be transmitted through them Adiabatic boundaries do not permit the flow or transfer of heat Topic 01 States of Gases Page 2 Thermal Equilibrium exists when there is no flow of heat between two objects that are separated by a diathermic boundary The objects must be at the same temperature The Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics states that ifobject A is in thermal equilibrium with object B and ifobject B is simultaneously in thermal equilibrium with object C then object A must be in thermal equilibrium with object C Common Temperature Scales in Chemistry Fahrenheit Originally 0 F represented the freezing point of liquid brine and 100 F represented the average human body temperature Nowadays the scale has been redefined via the freezing point of water 32 F and the boiling point of water 212 F Body temperature is now 986 F instead of 100 F One degree is exactly 1180 the difference between the freezing and boiling points of water Because negative temperatures are permitted the Fahrenheit scale is not an absolute scale Celsius 0 C represents the freezing point of water and 100 C represents its boiling point One degree is exactly 1100 the difference between the two values Because negative temperatures are permitted the Celsius scale is not an absolute scale Standard Conversions C 59 x F 32 F 95 C 32 Absolute zero refers to the lowest possible temperature limit in the physical universe as we know it An object39s temperature can theoretically be lowered extremely close to absolute zero but will never quite get there Temperatures corresponding to absolute zero are 27315 C and 45967 F Absolute Temperature Scales Because most scientific equations require the use of absolute temperature it is necessary to define a scale where 0 corresponds to absolute zero Only absolute temperature values may be used in such equations M The Kelvin scale is based on the Celsius scale the interval spacing between degrees is identical However the Kelvin scale is offset by 27315 degrees so that 0 K corresponds to absolute zero Note that the degree sign is not used with Kelvin temperatures Standard Conversions K C 27315 C K 27315 DISCUSSION QUESTIONS AND FOLLOWUP PROBLEMS 11 Express the pressure

individual gas laws The four plots represent Boyle39s Law top left Charles39 Law top right GayLussac39s Law bottom left and Avogadro39s Law bottom right Boyle s Law When the amount of chemical substance moles of gas n and the temperature T are constant the pressure of a gas is inversely proportional to its volume p 0c 1 V where 0c represents proportionality Relating an initial state defined by p1 V1 to a final state defined by p2 V2 Boyle39s law requires that p1V1 pZVZ when n and Tare constant The conditions must apply and must be My m when using Boyle39s Law to solve a problem Because the product pV is constant the plot of pressure vs volume yields a hyperbola Figure 1 top left is a graphical representation of Boyle39s Law at three different temperatures 0 C 100 C and 200 C pV is constant at constant temperature but the product increases with an increase in temperature The three constanttemperature plots are called isotherms Topic 02 Ideal Gases Page 1 Charles Law When the number of moles n and the pressure p are held constant the volume occupied by a gas V is directly proportional to the absolute temperature T Voc T Relating initial and final states Charles39 law requires that VlTl VZTZ when n and p are constant The use of Charles39 Law requires that the temperature be expressed on an absolute temperature scale Kelvin Figure 1 top right is a graphical representation of Charles39 Law at three different pressures 100 125 and 150 atm AVAT is constant at constant pressure but the ratio decreases with an increase in pressure The constantpressure plots are called isobars GayLussac s Law When the number of moles n and the volume V are held constant the pressure of a gas p is directly proportional to the absolute temperature T p 0c T Relating initial and final states GayLussac39s law requires that plTl pZTz when n and Vare constant The use of Gay Lussac39s Law also requires that the temperature be expressed on an absolute temperature scale Kelvin Figure 1 bottom left is a graphical representation of GayLussac39s Law at three different volumes 14 22 and 30 L ApAT is constant at constant volume but the ratio decreases with an increase in volume The constantvolume plots are called isochores Pressure Volume and Relative Temperature Scales It should be clear from the discussion above that an absolute temperature scale K must be used when applying either Charles39 Law or Gay Lussac39s Law Failure to do so will yield invalid results With that reminder you may be surprised to know that pressure and volume both have a linear relationship with relative temperature scales eg C or F when the other state variables are held constant This is verified in Figure 2 where volume V is plotted vs temperature in C with p and n constant left and pressure p is plotted vs temperature in C with Vand n constant right These are similar to two of the plots in Figure 1 with the exception of the temperature scale used for abscissa The darker line segments represent experimental data and the lighter extended lines represent an extrapolation of the data to zero volume left and to zero pressure right 125 aim Q1 A c on quotl 00 atm Volume L e e 1

origin because temperature values are not based on an absolute scale The Celsius temperature equivalent of absolute zero is given by the Celsius temperature that corresponds to zero volume left or zero pressure right This is represented by the point where all three extended lines meet on the temperature axis Topic 02 Ideal Gases Page 2 The information shown in Figure 2 can be used to determine the value of absolute zero for the relative temperature scale being used Based on the gas laws the volume must go to zero as the absolute temperature goes to zero left likewise the pressure must go to zero as the absolute temperature goes to zero right This means that absolute zero corresponds to the temperature reading where V is extrapolated to zero left or where p is extrapolated to zero right For an ideal gas the value of the Xintercept will be the same regardless of the constant pressure value left or the constant volume value right In both plots the xintercept is observed at 27315 C Avogadro s Law When the pressure p and the temperature T are held constant the volume occupied by a gas V is directly proportional to the number of moles n Voc n Relating initial and final states Avogadro39s law requires that V1n1 Vznz when p and Tare constant Figure 1 bottom right is a graphical representation of Avogadro39s Law when p 1 bar and T 29815 K Molar Volume The molar volume Vm is given by the total volume occupied V per mole of gas present n Vm Vn Avogadro39s Law requires that the molar volume of an ideal gas remain constant at constant Tand p The molar volume of a gas is an important thermodynamic quantity and is often substituted into thermodynamic equations Note that the units of molar volume are L mol39l The reciprocal of molar volume nV has units of mol L39l and represents the concentration of a gas The Combined Gas Law The four individual gas laws can be combined into a unified ideal gas law One way of stating the combined law is that the product of pressure and volume pV must be proportional to the product of moles and absolute temperature nT pVoc nT Rearranged the combined law requires that the ratio pVnT be constant pVnT R The constant R is a physical constant known as the gas constant Its value is tabulated in many units Two of the most commonly used values are R 831447 J K391 mol391 and R 820574 x 10392 L atm mol391 K39l The best value to use is determined by the data that is provided in any given problem The ideal gas equation of state can be written pV nRT The molar volume can also be substituted in the equation to yield me RT Relating any pair of initial and final states the law requires that p1V1n1T1 pZVZnsz You will note that the combined law does not require any assumptions about one or more of the state variables being held constant Can the Ideal Gas Law be used for Real Gases Recall that an ideal gas is one in which there are no intermolecular interactions between gas particles Although real gases do have intermolecular interactions real gases are well described by the ideal gas laws as long as the interactions are minimal This will generally be true at low pressures andor at high temperatures For most problems and calculations in this course you will assume that a given gas behaves ideally unless information is provided in the problem that suggests otherwise Standard Temperature and Pressure Conditions for Gases There are two common conventions for defining standard conditions Note that the defined pressures should be considered exact STP Standard Temperature and Pressure T 27315 K 0 C and p 1 atm SATP Standard Ambient Temperature and Pressure T 29815 K 2500 C and p 1 bar Topic 02 Ideal Gases Page 3 Relating Mass Density 0 to the Molecular Mass M of an Ideal Gases The mass density of a gas is given by 0 mV where 0 represents density m represents mass and V represents the occupied volume To apply this in the ideal gas equation we must relate moles to mass n mM Substituting the rightside expression for moles into the ideal gas law pV mMRT Isolating the molecular mass on the left side of the equation M mRTpV Finally the density can be substituted for mVin the rightside expression M pRTp This result which you should be able to m makes it possible to calculate the molecular mass of a pure gas sample given its density absolute temperature and pressure The average molecular mass will be calculated if a mixture of gases is present Dalton 5 Law Partial pressures in gas mixtures Partial Pressures in Gas Mixtures Dalton39s Law states that in a mixture of nonreacting gases the total pressure of the mixture is given by the sum of the partial pressures of the individual gases In a N system with N different gases Dalton39s Law is represented by the equation 9T 2 2p where pr is the i1 total pressure and p is the partial pressure of the ith gas Dalton39s law assumes ideal gas behavior and will not be perfectly followed in systems having significant intermolecular interactions In this course you will use Dalton39s Law for all mixedgas problems It follows that the partial pressure of the ith gas will follow the ideal gas equation of state p nRTV Note that Tand V are systemwide variables only n is specific to the individual gas for which p is calculated Mole Fractions y in Gas Mixtures Dalton39s law can be used to express partial pressures in terms of mole fractions The total gas pressure is given by pr nTRTV where nT represents the total number of all gas moles present Combining the last three equations N N RT RT N RT N N pT 2L 1 Zni 2 nT Z 3 pTZEyiM 2 2p 1 Substitution is i1 V V i1 V i1n T i1 made for p 2 The constant values R T and V are pulled outside of the summation 3 The right side is multiplied by nTnT one inside and one outside of the summation 4 The gasphase mole fraction y is substituted for its definition nnT as is pr for the expression outside the summation 5 The Dalton39s Law equation is used for pr Because the expressions in 4 and 5 must be equal term by term it follows that p ypT Therefore the partial pressure of a gas is equal to its mole fraction in the gas mixture multiplied times the total pressure DISCUSSION

Intermolecular Interactions and The Compression Factor Z Ideal gas molecules are free of intermolecular interactions Real gas molecules do interact A typical particleparticle interaction is illustrated in Figure 1 in which the energy of interaction is plotted vs the distance between two molecules The horizontal dashed line indicates where the interaction energy is zero ideal When molecules are too close to each other the interaction is repulsive The strongest attraction occurs where the energy is at a minimum At larger distances the interaction energy remains attractive but decreases in magnitude as the distance increases Repulsive forces dominate Energy i I 39 Attractive forces dominate 39 Distance between molecules Figure 1 Intermolecular Interaction Energy as a Function of Distance The dashed line represents where the energy is zero separating attractive energies below from repulsive energies above The ideal gas equation of state is given by 9V 2 nRT 1 me 2 RT 2 where 2 Wquot Wquot substitutes Vm for Vn in 1 The equations can be rearranged to give 2 quot 1 Here the nRT RT superscript 0 emphasizes that Vand Vm are ideal in these relationships V V For real gases we use the same ratio to define the compression factor Z Z E p h nRT RT It should be clear that Z 1 for an ideal gas For real gases the value of Z depends on whether the primary interactions in a gas are attractive or repulsive Z gt 1 indicates that repulsive interactions dominate If Z gt 1 it implies that Vm gt Vm0 at the same temperature and pressure When the real molar volume is larger than ideal the gas particles are spreading out due to mutual repulsion Z lt 1 indicates that attractive interactions dominate IfZ lt 1 it implies that Vm lt Vm0 at the same temperature and pressure When the real molar volume is smaller than ideal the gas particles are coming closer together due to mutual attraction Topic 03 Real Gases Page 1 Compression factors plotted as a function of pressure

evaluated at the pressure of interest Although the Virial power series expansion does not provide an intuitive understanding regarding the nonideal behavior of gases it does provide very accurate analytical results Topic 03 Real Gases Page 3 The van der Waals Equation of State The van der Waals Equation of State for real gases is not quite as accurate as the Virial approach but it is much more intuitive in terms of describing the nature of nonideal interactions The 2 nRT n RT a equation can be expressed In two forms 19 a or p 2 van der Waals V nb V Vm b m coefficients are different for each gas but are independent of temperature van der Waals coefficients are collected for several gases in Table 2 The coefficient b in the denominator of the first term can be interpreted as the effective molar volume that is occupied by real gas molecules The ideal gas approximation views individual molecules as being point masses that occupy zero volume Subtracting b from Vm corrects for this This correction has the effect of increasing the calculated pressure relative to the ideal Stated in different terms Vm b represents the effective available molar volume The second term represents attractive interactions which have the effect of decreasing the calculated pressure Because concentration is the reciprocal of molar volume the attractive term is proportional to the square of the concentration which is in turn proportional to the frequency of collisions between particles Table 2 Van der Waals Coefficients of Several Real Gases Gas aatm M392 blO392 M391 Ar 1337 320 CH4 2273 431

httpenwikipediaorgwikiReal gas Isotherms of a real gas are depicted in Figure 4 The isotherm temperatures increase as pressure increases At the highest temperature top light blue curve the isotherm mimics that of an ideal gas As temperature decreases nonideal behavior begins to set in The critical temperature is the highest temperature at which the liquid can exist as a distinct phase At this temperature the isotherm red has an inflection point through the critical point K but never condenses to a liquid At temperatures below the critical temperature the gas begins to condense at the point labeled G the molar volume of the vapor point G decreases to the molar volume of the liquid point F at constant pressure Therefore the horizontal line connecting G to F in the lower two isotherms identifies the transition pressure and the distinct molar volumes of the vapor and of the liquid When plotting the same isotherms using the van der Waals equation quotloopsquot are observed in the region of the phase transition The quotloopsquot consist of the segment of the curve connecting the points GCBAF The quotloopsquot are an artifact of the van der Waals equation and are nonphysical Even so the phase transition can be identified by connecting the outside points of the loop G F with a straight horizontal line Critical Values and the Principle of Corresponding States The critical temperature TC is the highest temperature at which the liquid can exist as a distinct phase At this temperature the liquid will be in equilibrium with the vapor at a specific pressure known as the critical pressure pc The molar volume of the equilibrium mixture is called the critical molar volume lec The equilibrium state defined by TC pc and lec is called the critical point Topic 03 Real Gases Page 5 Sometimes it is convenient to use what are referred to as reduced variables Reduced variables are defined as the ratio of the variable value divided by the corresponding critical value For example the reduced temperature T is defined as Tdivided by the critical temperature T TTC In like manner p ppc and V Vmlec When expressed in terms of reduced variables all gases in the same state behave identically This is an expression of the Principle of Corresponding States The implication of the principle is that the equation of state for all gases is identical when reduced variables are used ST The reduced equation of state for a van der Waals gas is given by pr 2 3V 1 W Note r that the equation is general and does not depend on a set of gasspecific coefficients Math Pointers The Method of Successive Approximations Many algebraic equations can be solved via the method of successive approximations Before using the method the relevant equation must be rearranged such that the target variable is isolated The right side of the equation will also include the target variable For solving the molar volume of a van RT a V2 m der Waals gas the rearranged equation is Vm b p Success of the method often depends on selection of a reasonable guess of the true value In this example a reasonable starting guess would be the molar volume of an ideal gas Vm RTp Calculation Cycle 1 Substituting your guess value on the right hand side calculate a new hopefully improved value of the target variable on the left hand side 2 Compare the two values If the new calculated value is equal to the guess value you are finished You have determined the value of the variable 3 If your new value is not equal to the old guess value run another calculation cycle beginning at 1 In the new cycle use the variable value that you just calculated as your improved guess value Repeat the cycle until the guess input value and the calculated output value are equal to the appropriate number of significant digits Topic 03 Real Gases Page 6 DISCUSSION QUESTIONS AND FOLLOWUP PROBLEMS 31 32 33 34 35 36 37 38 39 310 311 312 Starting with the definition of Z explain why a gas with Zlt 1 will be

of a system The absolute internal energy cannot be measured in the laboratory but changes in internal energy AU can be experimentally measured Internal energy is both a state function and an extensive function see below Energy Transfer between System and Surroundings Energy can be transferred between a system and its surroundings either in the form of heat q or in the form of work w Heat g Heat is the disordered transfer of energy On a microscopic level the energy transfer results in an increase of disordered molecular motion Work w Work is the orderly transfer of energy that is results in orderly molecular motion There are many forms of work mechanical work electrical work and expansion work to name only three n physics work a scalar is defined as the vector dot product between force and the distance through gt gt which the force operates w F x The equation can also be expressed as w F xcos6 where F and X represent the magnitude of the respective vectors and 9 is the angle between the force and distance vectors The negative sign reflects that positive work requires displacement against an opposing force Classifications of Thermodynamic Functions Thermodynamic functions can either be state functions or path functions State functions For a given state of the system the value of a state function is unique and fixed Changes in state function values depend only on the initial and final states and do not depend on the path that transforms the system from the initial state to the final state The internal energy U is a state function Therefore AU Uf U is always the same regardless of the path that is taken to transform the system between the two states Path functions Thermodynamic functions that depend directly on the path that is taken are called path functions Work w and heat q are both path functions Different paths between the same initial and final states will result in different values for w and q Topic 04 The First Law of Thermodynamics Page 2 State functions and variables can also be classified as either extensive or intensive An intensive variable or function is independent of the amount of substance present Temperature is an example of an intensive state function When volume is defined in terms of the physical space occupied as it is for gases volume is also an intensive variable An extensive variable orfunction depends on the amount of substance present The internal energy U is an extensive variable if the number of moles present is doubled the result is to double the internal energy For systems of gases the pressure is also an extensive variable because doubling the number of moles of gas in a fixed volume at constant temperature will double the system pressure The First Law of Thermodynamics The first law of thermodynamics states that whenever energy is transferred between a system and its surroundings the change in the system39s internal energy AU must be equal to the sum of all work that is done on the system w plus the heat that is transferred into the system q In equation form the first law says AU w q Sign Conventions in Chemical Thermodynamics A positive sign is used when the energy increases in the system A

Expansion of a Gas against an External Pressure The General Case Pressurevolume work is one of the most important varieties of work that can be obtained from systems of gases Consider a sample of gas that is initially confined inside a cylinder fitted with a moveable piston The circular area of the cylinder s base is given by A The external pressure pext pushes against the piston to hold it in place Let us first consider work done when the external pressure is constant and A2 is macroscopic and measureable Let the system initially be set up as shown below left The gas inside the system then pushes the piston out by a distance A2 against the external pressure doing work on its surroundings pext Pent Recall that work is defined by the vector dot product of the opposing force and the distance moved Let us initially consider the work done on the surroundings in this example First recall that pressure is force per unit area p FA therefore F A pext Because the external pressure provides the opposing force the external pressure must be used in this expression Work on the surroundings is given by wsu FAz where F represents the magnitude of the force that opposes expansion Substituting the first expression for force into the equation for work wsu pextAAz Because A412 is equivalent to the change in the cylinder39s volume AV we can write wsur pext AV Finally we express the result in terms of work done on the system Recalling that w wsu the work on the system is w pext AV Note carefully this result is not general It is valid only when pext is constant for the entire volumechange process Topic 05 Expansion Work Page 1 The General Expression for PressureVolume Work To generalize the results we must drop the assumption that pext is constant This means that we must visualize the process as a sequence of continuous infinitesimal changes To do this we must rewrite the equation for work in terms of differentials dw pext dV n words the infinitesimal change in work on the system dw is equal to the infinitesimal change in volume dV multiplied by pext the external pressure specifically corresponding to the infinitesimal volume change This result is general For expansion pressurevolume work dw pext dV This equation should be your starting point for all problems that involve pressurevolume expansion work Three Special Cases of PressureVolume Expansion To determine the value of work done on the system the differential equation must be V2 integrated and solved Idw w Ipm dV First note that the integral of dw is simply equal to the V1 total work w The volume integral must be evaluated over the limits from V1 initial to V2 final If the value of pext is dependent on Vfor the process in question a substitution expressed in terms of V must be made for pext in the integrand before the integral can be evaluated and solved NOTE CAREFULLY to correctly solve problems involving expansion work it is essential that you first identify and understand the nature of the physical process This understanding will determine what expression you will use for pext in the integral Examples of three specific expansion processes are given below Free Expansion Free Expansion refers to the expansion of a gas into a perfect vacuum Stated differently the external pressure against which the gas expands is equal to zero pext 0 V2 To solve for work begin with the general relationship derived above w I pm dV Next VI V2 substitute the correct expression for pext for free expansion w dV 2 0 Because the VI integrand is zero the integral is equal to zero The work associated with a free expansion is equal to zero Expansion against a Constant External Pressure Expansion against constant external pressure means that the external pressure is fixed and is independent of changes in the volume of the system Topic 05 Expansion Work Page 2 V2 Start with the general expression w J39pm dV When external pressure is constant with VI V2 respect to volume pext

AV Warning Do NOT memorize this equation All equations used to calculate work should be derived for every single problem beginning with the general expression Reversible Isothermal Expansion of an Ideal Gas Before discussing how the expression for work is derived in this kind of expansion it is important to introduce andor review the meaning of each specific condition There are three conditions all of which must be met for the derived equation to be valid Reversible For a reversible process the consequence of an infinitesimal change in the expansion conditions will be to reverse the direction of expansion Suppose that a system is expanding reversibly against its surroundings If the external opposing pressure is then increased infinitesimally the external pressure will be sufficient to reverse the expansion effecting compression of the system A reversible expansion requires the condition of mechanical equilibrium at each and every infinitesimal point of the expansion Equivalently stated the external pressure must be equal to the pressure of the system at all points of the expansion pext p Therefore a valid expression for the system pressure p can be substituted for pext whenever the expansion is reversible Isothermal The temperature T is constant Ideal Gas The system obeys the ideal gas equation of state pV nRT equivalently p nRTV To derive the expression for expansion work always begin with the general relationship V2 Idw w I pm dV 1 As explained above the external pressure must be equal to the system V1 V2 pressure at all times for a reversible

under a curve For example if dz y dx then 9 2 z Iydx If y is plotted as the ordinate vs X as the abscissa z is equal to the area under the curve 7 1 between x1 S X S x2 V2 The application to expansion work is straightforward When w I pm dV plot pext vs V VI The area under the curve between V1 and V2 is equal to minus the work done on the system ie is equal to the amount of work done by the system on its surroundings This is illustrated in Figure 1 where external pressure though not subscripted is plotted vs volume for an ideal gas Two different paths are shown the initial and final volumes of which are 20 L and 35 L The top path represents a reversible isothermal expansion The lower path represents expansion against a constant external pressure which is equal to the final pressure of the first expansion The work done on the surroundings is equal to the area under the relevant curve for 20 L S V S 35 L When the final external pressures are the same the figure demonstrates that the reversible process accomplishes more work on the surroundings than what is accomplished by the irreversible constantpressure process 14 12 10 08 05 04 02 00 pressure I atrn is 20 25 30 35 volume l L

this relationship is affected in a special case when the volume is constant and no quotextraquot work is done By quotextraquot work we mean any work that is different from pressurevolume expansion work In the preceding topic we derived the general differential equation for expansion work dw pext dV In a constant volume process there are no changes in volume Therefore AV 0 and dV 0 making the right side of the equation for dw equal to O The conclusion is straightforward In a constantvolume process the expansion work is equal to zero When no other kinds of work are permitted the fact that w 0 implies that AU q We use a subscript to emphasize that the process must be carried out at constant volume AU qv This is a very important result and is the starting equation for many calculations You should spend enough time to completely understand this relationship In general q is a path function However note that qv is equal to the change in a state function AU This implies that there is one and only one possible value of qv for a process that occurs at constant volume when no extra work is done The Measurement of AU via Adiabatic Bomb Calorimetry The relationship AU qv implies that AU can be directly measured via an experiment in which the system volume is held constant The laboratory apparatus used for making such measurements is called an adiabatic bomb calorimeter A calorimeter is a laboratory device used to measure the amount of heat transferred in the course of a chemical reaction or a physical change By definition heat cannot flow through an adiabatic boundary In this case the adiabatic boundary separates the calorimeter39s universe containing its own system and surroundings from the external laboratory surroundings This guarantees that no heat is lost into the laboratory surroundings and that all heat transferred out of the reaction system is completely captured by the water bath surroundings The bomb refers to the rigid constantvolume vessel typically made of steel in which the system reaction occurs Figure 1 contains a schematic of an adiabatic bomb calorimeter Inside of the calorimeter is the system contained within a rigid constantvolume bomb The bomb39s immediate surroundings typically contain a water bath Adiabatic walls surround the water bath ensuring that heat will not be lost into the laboratory surroundings The system reaction occurring inside the bomb is exothermic transferring heat to the water bath and causing a temperature increase in the water bath Topic 06 ConstantVolume Calorimetry Page 1 adiabatic we is 533mm l litml

by qsu CsurATsur where ATM is the temperature change measured in the water bath and CM is its heat capacity CM is referred to as the calorimeter constant and the subscript is commonly omitted For the system q qu therefore q 39 CATsur In principle q includes all sources of the heat that is transferred For any reaction under study qv AU because the reaction is carried out at constant volume If any other substances are present and undergo combustion the heat they produce must also be included Typically a small length of ignition wire must be supplied for the purpose of initializing the combustion reaction In that case the total heat transferred with respect to the system is given by q AU qW 2 where qW represents the heat generated via combustion of the ignition wire Combining equations 1 and 2 AU qW C ATsur Rearranging for AU gives AU C ATS qw 3 Note that AU as calculated via equation 3 is extensive The calculated value is proportional to the amount of sample that was

derivatives in mathematics When a function y depends only on one variable x the normal derivative dydx directly measures how an infinitesimal change in xwill affect the infinitesimal change in the function y When the dependent variable y depends on more than one independent variable X and z the a partial derivative directly measures how an infinitesimal change in xwill affect the x infinitesimal change in the function y when the independent variable 2 is held constant This course uses the partial derivative notation shown above A curly quot6quot is used in place of a regular

form C qAT For the bomb calorimeter the heat capacity was referred to as the calorimeter constant C is an extensive quantity because its value depends directly on the amount of substance present Illustration as the amount of water in a soup kettle is increased from 1 cup to 3 gallons the amount of heat that is required to raise the water temperature by 1 C increases proportionately Intensive Expressions for Heat Capacity The heat capacity can be expressed on a permole basis or on a permass basis The molar heat capacity Cm is the total heat capacity divided by the number of moles Cm Cn The specific heat capacity often just called the specific heat C5 is the total heat capacity divided by the mass usually in grams C5 Cm n standard data tables specific heats are much more common than molar heat capacities Both are examples of intensive variables Their value is unique and is constant for a given substance under specific conditions of temperature and pressure Heat Capacities Depend on Conditions The amount of heat required to raise the temperature of a system by 1 OC depends on conditions The heat capacity for constant volume processes CV is smaller in comparison to the heat

use this relationship Note that that equation 6 applies to a system that is heated while remaining in the same phase The heat capacity is dependent on the phase of the system The equation does not apply to phase transitions which will be explored in a later topic One important implication of this relationship is that AU 0 for an isothermal process AT 0 in which there is no chemical reaction or

open systems where p pext The Relationship between AU and AH for an Ideal Gas In General Chemistry a common laboratory experiment involves use of a coffeecup calorimeter The calorimeter is prefilled with a measured volume of water Then a reaction is initiated By measuring the temperature change in the open calorimeter the amount of heat transferred can be determined Because all the conditions are met AH q in the coffee cup calorimeter experiment In Topic 6 we discussed the experimental determination of AU via adiabatic bomb calorimetry It is normal to wonder how AH is related to the AU value measured in a bomb calorimeter The following derivation assumes 1 that the reaction or process is isothermal 2 that all gases behave ideally and 3 that because the volumes of solids and liquids are very small compared to the volume occupied by a gas they can be neglected and the pV product can be well approximated by pVgas Equation Explanation Justification H U pV Definition of Enthalpy pV pVgas ASSUMPTION 1 The volume occupied by gases is so much larger than the volume occupied by liquids and solids that the latter can be quotignoredquot pV is well approximated by pVgas with little error

1 add a subscript g to indicate that only gas components should be considered What is Ana To use the derived equation Ang must be correctly determined Begin with a balanced equation identifying the phase 5 I or g of each reactant and product On the product right side add the coefficients of all products in the gas phase to get ngprod do not include solid or liquid products Do the same thing for the reactant left side of the reaction to get ngxeac The difference between the two values is Ang Ang nglpmd nglreac As an example consider the combustion of one mole of benzene C5H5l Start by writing the balanced combustion reaction C6H6I M 02g gt 6 C02g g H20I Note that water is a liquid at 29815 K Because the combustion reaction is for mole of benzene fractional coefficients are common There are 6 moles of gas C02 on the product side H20 is a liquid and is not counted There are 75 moles of gas 02 on the reactant side C5H5 is a liquid and is not counted For this example Ang 6 mol product side 75 mol reactant side therefore Ang 15 mol The sign is important Topic 07 Enthalpy Page 3 The AH value for the combustion of benzene can be looked up in standard thermodynamic tables AH 3267 kl mol39l Now we will calculate AU for the combustion reaction at 29815 K The derived equation is AH AU RTAng This can be rearranged to isolate AU AU AH RTAng Evaluate the last term RTAng 8314471 K391 mol39129815 K15 mol 37184 J In the final calculation this must be converted to k to match the units of AH AU 3267 kl 37184 J1 kJlOOO J 3263 kl Note you will assume that gases in similar reactions behave ideally in this course However whenever you use the equation AH AU RTAng always state the assumptions underlying the equa on The ConstantPressure Heat Capacity dU You will recall that the constantvolume heat capacity is defined as CV The V dH constant pressure heat capacity Cp is defined as Cp 2 Note that the partial derivative of the P enthalpy is taken with pressure being held constant Recall that H U pV Because all three variables on the right side are positive the absolute enthalpy is always greater than the absolute internal energy H gt U This is not generally true for changes in enthalpy It is also generally true as we shall prove later that Cp gt CV for the same substance in the same state For ideal gases Cp CV nR equivalently CIDm Cvlm R In this course whenever you have data giving CIDm for a gas and need a value for Cvlm you should assume the ideal gas approximation to hold and use the above relationship Any exceptions will be made clear by the wording of the question Note that this equation is only used for gases For condensed phases solids and liquids CV and Cp are approximately equal We will explore the exact relationship between CV and Cp in a future Topic AH Calculations for Specific Processes Heating of a Substance in a Single Phase Under conditions of constant pressure the definition of Cp can be converted to a regular derivative Cp dHdT This can be rearranged to give dH deT This expression is exact for ideal gases and is a very good approximation for real gases In this course you will assume that the expression is good to use unless information provided in the problem indicates otherwise Integrating both sides gives AH ledT When the heat capacity can be assumed constant over the relevant temperature range it can be pulled outside of the integral AH CpldT This integrates to give AH Cp AT Unless given information suggesting that Cp is not constant with temperature in this course you should use this relationship for AH Later in this topic we will discuss what to do if Cp cannot be assumed constant as a function of temperature Topic 07 Enthalpy Page 4 When Cp can be assumed constant the change in enthalpy that occurs when a substance is heated in a single phase is given by AH Cp AT Note that a different value of Cp applies to each phase Phase Changes The above discussion does not apply to phase changes For example H20s gt H20l melting or fusion or H20l gt H20l vaporization The molar enthalpy changes associated with phase transitions AHfusm and AHvaplm can be looked up in standard tables Tabulated values correspond to the equilibrium transition temperature of the substance in question at a pressure of 1 bar The Temperature Dependence of ConstantPressure Heat Capacity C2 Unless conditions or information provided in a problem indicate otherwise you will usually assume that Cp is constant over the temperature range of interest However there are some cases in which this assumption cannot be made A One way to deal with the temperaturedependence is to express the heat capacity in the following functional form CIDm a bT cT39Z Three constants a b and c are tabulated for individual substances within a specified phase They are used to calculate the actual value of CIDm at a specified absolute temperature T For such problems we still assume the validity of AH ledT as derived above However because Cp is not constant it must be kept inside the integral AH l a bT cT392dT This can be split into a sum of three separate integrals which can be individually evaluated at the limits AH la dT le dT lcT39sz B At very low temperatures near absolute zero Debye observed that the heat capacity is directly proportional to T3 CIDm aT3 where a is a constant that depends on the substance The same procedure described n A is followed to calculate AH for heating First assume that AH ledT Next substitute the temperaturedependent expression for Cp inside the integral AH l aT3dT Finally integrate and evaluate at the temperature limits to solve for AH Expected Behavior of C2 as a Function of Temperature For real substances when heated in a single phase Cp is expected to increase with an increase in temperature The amount of increase will depend on the substance and the phase When undergoing a phase transition Cp is infinite and discontinuous This is because the heat capacity is generally defined as the differential heat absorbed dq divided by the differential change in temperature dT at constant pressure Cp dqpdT In an equilibrium phase transition heat is absorbed dq gt 0 but the temperature remains unchanged dT 0 Division by zero in the denominator makes Cp infinitely large and therefore undefined Note that the initial value of Cp following a phase transition is generally different from the final value of Cp preceding the phase transition Topic 07 Enthalpy Page 5 These concepts are demonstrated in Figure 1 When heated within a single phase Cp increases as a function of temperature The increase is not generally linear as depicted in the simplified figure This applies to a heating the solid c heating the liquid and e heating the vapor At the phase transitions Cp is infinite and therefore undefined This applies to b fusion and d vaporization Following each phase transition note that the initial value of Cp in the new phase is different from the final value in the previous phase Also the rate of change slope of Cp vs T varies among substances and depends on the phase i c heating llquLIlCll m L E Cp E e heating gas ELJ e o g 395 1 E ahea ngso d Tr T T Figure 1 Sketch of the Expected Behavior of Cp as a Function of Temperature See text for details Graphical Determination of AH In Topic 5 it was emphasized that the area under a pext vs V plot can be interpreted as the amount of work done by the system on its surroundings Because AH ledT the area under the Cp vs T plot between two specific temperatures gives the value AH for heating between those two temperatures provided that the heating occurs within a single phase at constant pressure DISCUSSION QUESTIONS AND FOLLOWUP PROBLEMS 71 The Gibbs Energy is defined by the following equation G E HTS where H is the
