Ok, the first question is this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

It asks me to show that the following relation holds for a reversibe adiabatic expansion of an ideal gas:

T/P ^(1 - (1/Gamma)) = constant

Where Gamma = the ratio of: C_p/C_v the specific heats with constant pressure and volume, respectively.

I know that PV ^Gamma = constant and that TV ^(Gamma - 1) = constant.

i just dont see the connection.

Second question:

An ideal gas undergoes an adiabatic reversible expansion from an initial state (T1, v1) to a final state (T2,v2).

Show:

ln (T_2/T_1) = (Gamma - 1) ln (v_1/v_2)again where Gamma = the ration of specific heats.

Please help, thanks
