Thermodynamics of gases

  1. Feb 10, 2004 #1
    need some explaination of these.

    a gas feels cold when it escapes through a small hole of a closed cylinder at high pressure. Explain this phenomenon based on the first law of thermodynamics.
    will the escaping gas above be cold if allowed o excape into a vacuum??

    Probably you will use the ideal gas law as well. Please tell us what you think the first law of thermo is (with definitions/interpretations).
