Chemistry - Molar Entropy Question

  1. Jan 24, 2009 #1
    Working this thing on Web Assign. I feel like I've been doing everything 100% correct, yet I keep getting the wrong answer.


    Basically, I need help on part B and C

    What I did for B, I tried to calculate Delta S by using the equation n Cv ln(T2/T1)
    I plugged in Cv given in the problem, used 341 for T2, and 298 for T1. n is One, since its for one mole. And I added the value I get to delta S to S that was given in the problem.

    What have I been doing wrong.

    Maybe you should be plugging in [tex]C_p[/tex]. The question says that the pressure is 1 atmosphere, even at the higher temperature. Therefore you must be operating at constant pressure and your volume must have increased.

    I've tried that multiple times. Thanks, though.
