##### Internal Energy Problem Help
« on: March 09, 2018, 12:45:58 PM »

Internal Energy Problem.. A chemical reaction occurs, 25.5 KJ of energy is exchanged between the system and surroundings...

given:

Pressure: 3.50 atm

L*atm= 101.32 J

w= -pDeltaV

temperature change: 7.6 Kelvin

What is the change in internal energy?
This one's really stumping me. Any help would be appreciated. Even just a hint.
I've tried rearranging the pv work equation, I've tried rearranging the change internal equation. Actually just not sure where the temperature fits into all this. I understand most of this. This isn't like any internal energy problem I've run into..

Side note: I'm not even sure if this problem is possible to solve without more info

• I am known to be occasionally wrong.

Thermodynamics is definitely not my forte, but at first sight I don't see how to solve this one as well.

Doesn't provide enough information to make sense of what's going on.  If work is being done, what is moving?  Is the reaction being conducted within a piston where ideal gas can be assumed?  If so, w = pΔV = nRΔT.  What is the direction of the energy exchange in regards to the system and the surroundings?
