1 An ideal gas undergoes a cycle of processes as shown in the p-V diagram gases . Which statement correctly describes the situation?
Click here to see exhibit
The internal energy of the gas increases over one complete cycle
Over the entire cycle, work is done by the gas.
The gas absorbs more heat than it releases heat over the whole cycle
The gas gives out more heat than it absorbs over the whole cycle.
2 A fixed mass of an ideal gas slowly releases 1500 J of heat and as a result contracts slowly, at a constant pressure of 2.0 x 104 Pa, from a volume of 0.050 m3 to 0.025 m3 . What is the effect on the internal energy of the gas?
It decreases by 2000 J.
It decreases by 1000 J.
It is unchanged.
It increases by 1000 J.
3 A dam is thicker at the bottom than at the top because
surface tension exists only on the surface of liquids.
it looks better
water is denser at deeper levels.
water pressure is greater with increasing depth.
4 A completely submerged object always displaces its own
density of fluid.
weight of fluid.
volume of fluid.
all of these
5 When gas in a container is squeezed to half its volume, its density
remains the same.

7 What is the buoyant force acting on a 10-ton ship floating in the ocean
more than 10 tons
depends on density of seawater
8 How much pressure do you experience, when you balance a 5 kg ball on the tip of your finger, which has an area of
9 If you wish to warm 100 kg of water by
for your bath, how much energy is required? (Specific heat capacity of water is
10 Heat can be defined as------------------------
the change in temperature of a body
the flow of temperature from one body to another
energy that flows from place to place as a result of the difference in temperature between them
the measure of hotness or coolness of a body
11 Two bodies may be said to be in thermal equilibrium if
the bodies are thermally insulated from one another
the bodies are not in thermal equlibrium with another body
if one body loses heat to the other
if there not net flow of heat between the two bodies two bodies in thermal contact
12 Heat capacity has units as
13 An engine absorbs 2000J of heat from a hot reservoir and expels 750J to a cold reservoir during each operating cycle. What is the power output of the engine if each cycle lasts for 0.5 seconds?
14 An engine absorbs 2000J of heat from a hot reservoir and expels 750J to a cold reservoir during each operating cycle. How much work is done during the cycle?
15 An engine absorbs 2000J of heat from a hot reservoir and expels 750J to a cold reservoir during each operating cycle. What is the efficiency of the engine?
16 Calculate the work done on the system when 1.00 mol of gas held behind a piston expands irreversibly from a volume of
to a volume of
against an external pressure of 1.00 bar.
17 A perfect gas expands reversibly at a constant temperature of 298 K so that its volume doubles. What is the change in the molar internal energy of the gas?
