Does my work here look right?
3. One mole of an ideal gas expands adiabatically into a vacuum. Calculate q, deltae, w, and deltaH for the process.
q= 0 [adiabatic]
w= Pext(V2V1)
w= 0
deltae = w + q
deltae = 0 + 0 = 0
deltah= deltae + P(delta V)
deltah= 0 + 0 = 0
does this seem right? The problem doesn't give me any information besides the fact that it's adiabatic, a vacuum, and there's one mole of a gas, so I didn't know the volumes or temperature that's the only thing that's making me believe that everything is 0.
