# Gas from.. barometer reads 760 mm… process. Solved problem

### Gas from a cylinder of compressed helium is used to inflate an inelastic flexible balloon, originally folded  completely flat, to a volume 0.6 m3. If the barometer reads 760 mm of Hg, what is the amount of work done upon the atmosphere by the balloon ? Sketch the system before and after the process.

1. A thermocouple with test junction at t°C on gas thermometer scale and reference junction at ice point gives the e.m.f. as

e = 0.20 t – 5 × 10-4 t2 mV.

The millivoltmeter is calibrated at ice and steam points. What will be the reading on this thermometer where the gas reads 70°C ?

2. Comment whether the following quantities can be called as properties or not:

(i) ∫ pdV

(ii) ∫ Vdp and

(iii) ∫ pdV + ∫ Vdp

3. Gas from a cylinder of compressed helium is used to inflate an inelastic flexible balloon, originally folded  completely flat, to a volume 0.6 m3. If the barometer reads 760 mm of Hg, what is the amount of work done upon the atmosphere by the balloon ? Sketch the system before and after the process.
