Question: What is the atmospheric pressure when the height difference is 710 mm? The density of the mercury at 20◦C is 13.595 g/cm3
What is used for measuring
pressure? Draw it
What is used to measure the pressure of gases other than atmospheric? Draw them (2).
Three different kinds of systems:
What properties describe the state of the system?
Define extensive property and name some
Property is proportional to the amount of material. Energy, electricalcharge, mass, etc.
Define intensive property and name some
Property does not depend on the amount of material. Density, temperature,etc.
Draw and label an example of an isothermal gas expansion. Note if any properties become a function of any other properties
P as a function of V - if we change the pressure and always wait long enough until thermal equilibrium between the gas in the syringe and the water in the bath is reached
Example 2.1 in the book: the number of oxygen molecules in an alveolus? (r=0.005cm, pO2=14%,P=1atm)
Energy is the ability to do work
