Q12.5 In changing the state of a gas adiabatically from an equilibrium state A to another equilibrium state B, an amount of work equal to 22.3 J is done on the system. If the gas is taken from state A to B via a process in which the net heat absorbed by the system is 9.35 cal, how much is the net work done by the system in the latter case ? (Take )
In the first case, the process is adiabatic i.e.
22.3 J work is done on the system i.e.
Since in the latter process as well the initial and final states are the same as those in the former process will remain the same for the latter case.
In the latter case net heat absorbed by the system is 9.35 cal
The network done by the system in the latter case is 17.0 J
