Question

A flexible balloon contains 0.400 molmol of an unknown polyatomic gas. Initially the balloon containing the gas has a volume of 7.50 m3 and a temperature of 26.0∘C. The gas first expands isobarically until the volume doubles. Then it expands adiabatically until the temperature returns to its initial value. Assume that the gas may be treated as an ideal gas with Cp=33.26J/mol⋅K and γ=4/3.

What is the total heat Q supplied to the gas in the process?

Mass released = 8.6 g

Given data:

Initial number of moles nitrogen= 0.950 mol

Initial volume = 25.5 L

Final mass of nitrogen released  = ?

Final volume = 17.3 L

Formula:

V₁/n₁  = V₂/n₂

25.5 L / 0.950 mol = 17.3 L/n₂

n₂ =  17.3 L× 0.950 mol/25.5 L

n₂ = 16.435 L.mol /25.5 L

n₂ = 0.644 mol

Initial mass of nitrogen:

Mass = number of moles × molar mass

Mass = 0.950 mol × 28 g/mol

Mass = 26.6 g

Final mass of nitrogen:

Mass = number of moles × molar mass

Mass = 0.644 mol × 28 g/mol

Mass = 18.0 g

Mass released = initial mass – final mass

Mass released = 26.6 g – 18.0 g

Mass released = 8.6 g
