Problem 42P

A thermodynamic sys-tem is taken from state ?a to state ?c in ?Fig. P19.38 along either path ?abc or path ?adc?. Along path ?abc?, the work W done by the system is 450 J. Along path ?adc?, ?W is 120 J. The internal energies of each of the four states shown in the figure are Ua = 150 J, Ub = 240 J, Uc = 680 J, and Ud = 330 J. Calculate the heat flow Q for each of the four processes ?ab?, ?bc?, ?ad?, and ?dc?. In each process, does the system absorb or liberate heat?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 42P This question is based on the first law of thermodynamics, which is expressed mathematically as Q = U + W , where Q is the amount of heat added to a system, U is the change in internal energy of the system and W is the work done by the system. Along path abc, W) abc = 450 J From path a to b, the volume remains constant, so W) = 0…..(1) ab So, W) = 450 J …..(2) bc Along the path adc, W) = 120 J adc From path d to c, the volume remains constant, so W) dc= 0…..(3) So, W) ad = 120 J …..(4) Now, change in internal energy from a to b U ab= U bU a= 240 J 150...
