SECTION B
1.
Calculate the change in internal energy when 40 g of ice changes to water under normal atmospheric pressure. Given density of ice is
920 kgm-3, density of water = 1000 kgm-3 latent heat of fusion of ice = 3.5 x IO5 Jkg - 1.
3.
Figure 1 shows two processes abc and cda. For process abc, 7 J of work is done by the gas and 10 J of heat is absorbed by it. If the
area enclosed by abcda corresponds to an energy difference of 4 J, what is the heat exchanged in carrying out the process cda?
4.
2 mole of an ideal gas occupying a volume of 0.5
m3 is heated at constant pressure of 6.64 kPa until the temperature of the gas
changes from 200 K to 350 K. The gas is then cooled under constant volume until it reaches the initial temperature. During the
cooling process, the internal energy changes by 3.75 kJ. What was the work done by the gas in the entire process?
5.
Distinguish between the operation of a heat engine and a heat pump.
