  1. An ideal gas at 0.00oC initially occupies 0.150 m3 at a pressure of 2.00 atm.
    First: It is expanded isothermally until its volume triples.
    Second: it is cooled at a constant volume until its pressure is reduced by half.
    (a) How many moles of the gas are there (HINT: convert temp to Kelvin)
    (b) What is the total work done during the two processes.
  2. Load up the Desmos on Maxwell Speed Distribution (Links to an external site.).
    Change the molar mass value to be that for F2 gas. (google it)
    (a) Find the temperature at which v_rms = 600 m/s
    (b) What is the most probable and average speed at the temperature from part (a)?
    (c) take a screen shot (or picture) of the graph and upload it with the name Maxwell-Pic.
  3. At the end of the Adiabatic Processes video there is an example question for you do do. Do it!
