Problem 10.28

Consider a rigid, insulated box containing 0.400 mole of He(g) at 20.08C and 1.00 atm in one compartment and 0.600 mole of N2(g) at 100.08C and 2.00 atm in the other compartment. These compartments are connected by a partition that transmits heat. What is the final temperature in the box at thermal equilibrium? [For He(g), Cv 5 12.5 J K21 mol21; for N2(g), Cv 5 20.7 J K21 mol21.]

Rff: Fed funds interest rate b. Dff: Demand for fed funds from banks that borrow in the fed funds market c. Sff: Supply of fed funds supplied by bank excess reserves 4. The fed adjusts the supply with OMO with restrictive monetary policy. This causes a drop in Sff: Sff​0​­> Sff1​and an increase in Rff: Rff ­> Rff​ 0​ 1 4. Yield Curve a.
