Consider a system consisting of one mole of an ideal diatomic gas in a container with piston. What is the temperature change of the gas, if q = 50.0 J and W = -100.0 J?
The correct option is B −2.4 J
According to first law of thermodynamics,
Molar heat capacity at constant volume, CV=(△E△T)V
∴ △T=△ECV=−50 J52R
