Problem P. 4439. (April 2012)

P. 4439. A sample of Oxygen gas of mass 32 g is compressed at a constant pressure from a volume of 8 litres to a volume of 7 litres. During the process the gas is cooled down such that the pressure of the gas remains constant. At the final state the temperature is 40 oC smaller than at the initial state.

a) What was the initial and final temperature of the gas?

b) What is the pressure of the gas?

c) How much work was done in joules?

d) What is the amount of heat released by the Oxygen?
