Ideal gas Entropy Sackur-Tetrode
Thermal and Statistical Physics 2020
Consider one mole of an
ideal monatomic gas at 300K and 1 atm. First, let the gas expand
isothermally and reversibly to twice the initial volume; second, let
this be followed by an isentropic expansion from twice to four times
the original volume.
How much heat (in joules) is added to the gas in each of these two
processes?
What is the temperature at the end of the second process?
Suppose the first process is replaced by an irreversible expansion
into a vacuum, to a total volume twice the initial volume. What is
the increase of entropy in the irreversible expansion, in J/K?
