Problem 30E

In an adiabatic process for an ideal gas, the pressure decreases. In this process does the internal energy of the gas increase or decrease? Explain your reasoning.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 30E First law of thermodynamics for a system is dq-dw=du In reversible adiabatic process dq=0 Therefore equation for this process is -dw=du When gas expands it do work i.e. dw= +ve therefore du = - ( +ve) du = -ve...
