Ideal Gas Law m = mass n = number of moles R may be found on Table 3.1
When the general compressibility factor, Z  1, then the following relationship between pressure, temperature, and volume of a gas applies. which can also be written or m = mass n = number of moles R may be found on Table 3.1

Enthalpy, h, was defined as:
Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp If a gas behaves as an ideal gas, then its specific internal energy, u, depends only on temperature. Enthalpy, h, was defined as: For an ideal gas, since then Since and Therefore: If a gas can be treated as an ideal gas, its intensive properties of specific energy and enthalpy are entirely functions of temperature.

Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp
If u and h are only functions of temperature, then the specific heats may be used to determine relations between temperature change and energy levels. For an ideal gas, the expressions for u and h can be simplified since u = f(T) and h = f(T) For many cases, the specific heats will be treated as constant values over a limited temperature range and these integrals will be approximated as:

Another important ideal gas equation may be written as
Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp Another important ideal gas equation may be written as When the specific heat ratio is used, this equation may also be written as and For monotonic gases (Ar, Ne, He) with k = 1.4

Temperature Dependence:
Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp Temperature Dependence: Specific heats cv and cp are functions of temperature. If possible, you should look up their values from tables which give the specific heat at the temperature indicated. (see Tables A-20 and A-20E) An alternative method is to use a formula to represent cp based on where Table A-21 has values of , , , ,  for different gases

But, often this is simplified, evaluating cV and cP at an average T
Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp It best to use an actual function of the specific heats to evaluate u and h, by integration But, often this is simplified, evaluating cV and cP at an average T either and or the specific heat at the average temperature may be used. where if cV and cP are treated as constants, then

1) Decide if a substance can be treated as an ideal gas…if yes, then
Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp Summary: 1) Decide if a substance can be treated as an ideal gas…if yes, then or 2) To evaluate changes in internal energy, u, and enthalpy, h: i) Integrate with cv and cp as function of T (see Table A-21) or ii) Use value of cv or cp at an average temperature (see Table A-20) iii) Use k and R to define and then or or iv) Look up temperature dependent values of u and h on property tables. Table A-22 has property values for Air Table A-23 has property values for CO2, C0, H20, O2, and N2.

a) the mass of the air, b) the work, and c) the heat transfer.
Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp Example: (3.111) A piston cylinder assembly contains air at 2 bar, 300K, and a volume of 2 cubic meters. the air undergoes a process to a state where the pressure is 1 bar, during which the pressure-volume relationship is pV = constant. Assuming ideal gas behavior, determine a) the mass of the air, b) the work, and c) the heat transfer.

Sec 3.13 : Ideal gases and u, h, cv, cp
Example: (3.124) Two kilograms (2 kg) of air, initially at 5 bar, 350 K and 4 kg of CO initially at 2 bar, 450 K are confined to opposite sides of a rigid, well-insulated container by a partition. The partition is free to move and allows conduction from one gas to the other without energy storage in the partition itself. The air and CO each behave as ideal gases with constant specific heat ratio, k = Determine at equilibrium (a) the temperature in K, (b) the pressure, in bar, and (c) the volume occupied by each gas, in m3.

Solution using IT: Note: The results are slightly different as the cv and cp values that IT pulled out slightly different.
