Experiment shows that specifying these three quantities ﬁxes the thermodynamic state of pure systems. From this initial state we place a single large weight on top of the piston, exerting a constant pressure (Pext) on the gas and changing its volume. The system is closed so N is unchanged and the system is insulated so the process is adiabatic. At the end of the process the system is allowed to relax to equilibrium at its ﬁnal volume Vn ; the temperature is then measured and found to have increased, Tn > T1.
Wt. 13 The ideal-gas equation of state, PV = NRT, applies to certain pure gases and their mixtures. Consider such a mixture conﬁned in a closed, rigid vessel, and containing Ni moles of each component i. 14 Consider a binary gas mixture that obeys the virial equation of state, 2 2 [ x 1 B 11 ( T ) + 2x 1 x 2 B 12 ( T ) + x 2 B 22 ( T ) ] Pv -------- = 1 + ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------v RT Here, v = V/N, each xi is a mole fraction for one component, xi = Ni/(N1 + N2), and the Bij are called second virial coefﬁcients; they are intensive properties that depend only on temperature.
01 moles of methane. When the system is at equilibrium, its temperature is 25°C. 1 bar. Process 1: Finite stepwise irreversible expansion. 1 bar. To create a pressure imbalance across the piston, we vent the air chamber. In this ﬁrst example, air is removed by cycling the ball valve open and shut three times. 1 bar. The vent line is so large that each drop in Pext is nearly instantaneous. Between each cycle the system is given time to reestablish equilibrium, as indicated by steady readings on the pressure gauges and the position indicator.
