‘cycle for an ideal gas.
A diatomic ideal gas is the working fluid of a Carnot heat engine. The PV diagram for the full Carnot cycle
includes two isotherms and two adiabats (refer to Figure 5.3 SVA p. 165). a) Given: TH = 400 0 C, TC = 200
© C, Pb = 186,511 Pa and Pd = 28,484 Pa, calculate Vc & Va. b) Calculate QH for the isothermal (at TH)
expansion. ¢) What is the net work done by 1 mole of ideal gas? d) What causes the gas to undergo the
adiabatic expansion? What is the purpose of the adiabatic squeeze?
