Solution

## The correct option is D 424 K.Given : 1 litre1 litre of an ideal gas (γ=1.5)(γ=1.5) at 300 K300 K is suddenly compressed to half its original volume.What is the final temperature?Solution :γ=1.5 , T=300K , V=1L , V=1/2 LThe process is adiabatic as it is suddenT1Vγ−11=T2Vγ−12300K(1)1.5−1=T2(12)1.5−1On solving we get T2=300√2 = 424.2 ≈ 424The Correct Opt =D
