Example for ideal gases



  • The pressure of an ideal diatomic gas at 300 K changes from 1 atmto 10 atmadiabatically and reversibly. What is the final temperature?
    For isoentropicprocess of ideal gases (adiabatic and reversible process)

Temperature increases by 291 K.
The same change of solid cupper showed only 0.003 K increases in T.
