B Heat transferred into a closed system

  1. May 6, 2016 #1
    So i am making a simple demonstration of ideal gas law using a cylinder piston system, heating the system so the piston is pushed up, i wanted to calculate the heat transferred into the system, will it be Cp(Tf-Ti) or Cp(Tf-Ti)+ work done by the system ?

    Using the first law of thermodynamics, how would you answer this question?

    well using the first law Q-W=ΔU, Q will equal to to ΔU+ W but i dont know how to calculate ΔU

    For one mole of an ideal gas, ##\Delta U =C_v(T_f-T_i)##. Now what?

    why use Cv not Cp the system has constant pressure and variable volume

    The internal energy of an ideal gas is (a) a function of temperature only or (b) a function of temperature and volume (per unit mass)?

    For constant pressure, what is the amount of work that is done?
