Q14. A reaction, A + B → C + D + q is found to have a positive entropy change. The reaction will be

• (b) possible only at low temperature
• (c) not possible at any temperature
• (d) possible at any temperature

Solution.

(d): A + B → C + D + q, ΔS = +ve

Here, ΔH = -ve

ΔG = ΔH – TΔS

For reaction to be spontaneous, ΔG should be -ve. As ΔH = -ve and ΔS is +ve, ΔG will be -ve at any temperature.

Q15. In a process, 701 J of heat is absorbed by a system and 394 S of work is done by the system. What is the change in internal energy for the process?

Solution.

Heat absorbed by the system (q) = 701 J

Work done by the system (w) = -394 J

According to first law of thermodynamics,

ΔU = q + w = 701 + (-394) = 701 – 394 = 307 J
