1.2(b) (a)Could 25 g of argon gas in a vessel of volume 1.5L exert a pressure of 2.0 bar at 30C if it
behaved as a perfect gas? If not, what pressure would it exert?(b) what pressure would it exert if it behaved
as a van der Waals gas?
Solution: (a) The perfect gas law is
nRT pV
implying that the pressure would be
V
nRT
p
All quantities on the right are given to us except n, which can be computed from the given mass
of Ar.

Solution:
All gases are perfect in the limit of zero pressure. Therefore the extrapolated value of T pV

The value obtained for R deviates from the accepted value by 0.005 per cent. The error results from the fact
that only three data points are available and that a linear extrapolation was employed. The molar mass,
however, agrees exactly with the accepted value, probably because of compensating plotting errors.

1.8(b) At 100C and 120 Torr, the mass density of phosphorus vapour is 0.6388 Kgm

1.10(b) A gas mixture consists of 320 mg of methane, 175 mg of argon, and 225 mg of neon. The partial
pressure of neon at 300K is 66.5 Torr. Calculate(a) the volume and (b) the total pressure of the mixture.

Problems
2.2 An average human produces about 10MJ of heat each day through metabolic activity. If a human body
were an isolated system of mass 65 kg with the heat capacity of water, what temperature rise would the
body experience? Human bodies are actually open systems, and the main mechanism of heat loss is through
the evaporation of water. What mass of water should be evaporated each day to maintain constant
temperature?
Solution: Good approximate answers can be obtained from the data for the heat capacity and molar heat of
vaporization of water at 25 .[Table 2.6 and 2.3]

Comment: This estimate would correspond to about 30 glasses of water per day, which is much higher than
the average consumption. The discrepancy may be a result of our assumption that evaporation of water is
the main mechanism of heat loss.
