Solutions 
1. ?U = Q - W 
   = 254 -(-73)= 327 J 
2.  (a) 
  ?   200 =1.5 × 8.31(T f - 300)  
  Solving we get, 
   Tf = 316K 
  (b) 
  ?   200 = 2.5 × 8.31(Tf - 300) 
   
3.  For all process, 
   
4.  V = constant 
  From   PV = nRT 
   
    
5.  First process 
   V = constant 
   
  Pressure becomes three times. 
  Therefore temperature also becomes three times. 
    (Tf = 3Ti) 
  Second process 
   P = constant 
   
  Volume is doubled. So temperature also becomes two time.  
   (T'f = 6Ti) 
   
    
6.  First Process  
   V = constant 
   
  Pressure becomes half. So, temperature also becomes half. 
    
   = - 300 C V  
  Second Process 
   P = constant 
    
   = 2CP(300-150) = 300 CP 
   Q = Q1 + Q2 
   = 300(CP - CV) = 300 R 
   = 300 × 8.31 = 2493 J 
7.  
   
   Tf = 385 K 
    
8.  P = constant 
   
  As the gas expands V increases. So, T also increases. Hence is positive. Therefore in the 
expression, 
    
  Q is positive.
