1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Calculate DeltaE of a gas for a process in which the gas absorbs 42J of heat and does 14J of work on the surroundings. (ie the gas expands) 2. Relevant equations DeltaH=DeltaE-Q 3. The attempt at a solution 42=deltaE-14 DeltaE=+28J This is one of the last problems on my chem review and it just seems too easy. If anyone could verify my process that would be great.
