Thermodynamics – Solutions
1) Choose the correct answer. A thermodynamic state function is a quantity:
i) used to determine heat changes.
ii) whose value is independent of path
iii) used to determine pressure volume work.
iv) whose value depends on temperature only.
A thermodynamic state function is a quantity whose value is independent of path. It depends upon the initial and final states of the system. Hence, the correct option is (ii).
2) For a process to occur under adiabatic conditions, the correct condition is:
ii) Dp= 0
