Adiabatic process of monatomic gas problem

  • #1

Homework Statement



By how much does the temperature of an ideal monatomic gas change in an adiabatic process in which 4.0kJ of work are done on each mole of gas?

By how much does the temperature of an ideal diatomic gas (with molecular rotation but no vibration) change in an adiabatic process in which 4.0kJof work are done on each mole of gas?

How is the internal energy of an ideal monoatomic gas related to the temperature?
How much does the internal energy of one mole ideal gas change in an adiabatic process if 4kJ work is done on the gas?

U=3/2 NkT, ok I got it.
I'm going to substitute values in this equation
thanks
