Single Correct MCQs: Heat & Thermodynamics - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE(a) W1< W2< W3
(b) W1> W2> W3
(c) W1 = W2 = W3
(d) W1< W2 but W3< W
2

Correct Answer is option (a)
The work done by the gas system depends upon the area enclosed between P-V curve and volume axis.  The area enclosed by curve 3 is maximum and that enclosed by curve 1 is minimum. Hence W3> W2> W1

(a) Monoatomic
(b) Diatomic
(c) Triatomic
(d) None of these

Correct Answer is option (b)
∴ λ = 2 × 6.77 cm = 13. 54cm
v = nλ = 1000 × 13.54 = 1.354 × 104cm/sec.

We know that
Single Correct MCQs: Heat & Thermodynamics - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEEwhere molecular weight
M = Ax with x = 1 if iodine is monoatomic x = 2 it diatomic and A is atomic weight
∴ γ = Axv2/RT = 0.7
Where x = 2 as iodine is diatomic
∴ γ = 1.4 (right value of diatomic gas)

Correct Answer is option (b)
Heat released in t second Q = ML ...(A)
Loss of heat per second  P =  Q/t ...(B)

From equation (A) and (B) P = ML/t
∴ L = Pt/M


Q.9. Isothermal curves are obtained by drawing –
(a) P against V
(b) P against T
(c) PV against R
(d) PV against V

Correct Answer is option (b)
In an isothermal process, temperature remains constant and process equation is, PV = constant So a graph is drawn between P and V.


Q.10. dU = – dW is true for –
(a) Isothermal process
(b) Adiabatic process
(c) Isobaric process
(d) Isochoric process

Correct Answer is option (b)
In an adiabatic process, heat cannot be exchanged between the system and surrounding so,
dQ = 0
By Ist law of thermodynamics
dQ = dU + dW
dU= –dW


Q.11. In a certain process the pressure of one mole ideal gas varies with volume according to the relation P = Single Correct MCQs: Heat & Thermodynamics - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEEwhere a, b are constants, when the volume of gas V = b, then temperature of the gas will be -
(a) ab
(b) ab/R
(c) ab
(d) zero

Correct Answer is option (b)
∴ T = PV/R

At V = b, P = a/(1 + 1) = a/2
∴ ab/ 2R

Single Correct MCQs: Heat & Thermodynamics - Notes | Study All Types of Questions for JEE - JEE(a) Positive
(b) Negative
(c) Zero
(d) Infinity

Correct Answer is option (b)
The cyclic process 1 is clockwise and the process 2 is anticlockwise. Therefore w1 will be positive and w2 will be negative area2> area1. Hence, the network will be negative.

So energy is basically the sum of energies of all molecules which represents translational kinetic energy.


Q.15. Which of the following parameters is the same for molecules of all gases at a given temperature?
(a) Mass
(b) Speed
(c) Momentum
(d) Kinetic energy

Correct Answer is option (a)
Kinetic energy according to kinetic theory of gases is given by,
E = 3/2 RT
R is a universal constant and temperature remains same for all gases. So kinetic energy is same for molecules of all gases at a given temperature.


Q.16. In the above question find out heat given to the system or taken out from the system in the process C → A and network done in complete cycle.
(a) – 200J, 50J
(b) – 200J, 60J
(c) 60J, – 200J
(d) +200J , – 69J

Correct Answer is option (a)
For the process C → A, ΔU = UA - U= 0 - 80
⇒ ΔU = - 80J 

and W = area ACED = area ACB + area ABED
∴ W = ( 1/2 × AB × BC) + (DE × DA) 

∴ W = (1/2 × 2 × 60) + ( 2 × 30) = 120 J

Since, in this process the volume decreases, the work will be negative (w = 120Joule). That is, the work will be done on the system. Now, by the first law of thermodynamics, will have
Q = ΔU + W = - 80 - 120 = - 200J
Since it is negative, this heat is given out by the system and work done in the whole cycle = area ABC =  1/2 × 2 × 60 = 60J
Since, the cyclic process is traced anticlowise, the net work will be done on the system.
