Problem D17:
An ideal gas starts out initially at a volume V_{0} and a temperature
T_{0}. It is then compressed adiabatically to a volume
V_{0}/n_{2}. The molar heat capacity of the gas for a constant
volume process is C_{V} = n_{1}R/2 for the temperatures in
this problem. If the final temperature of the gas is T=n_{3}T_{0},
what is n_{3}? Note that n_{1}, n_{2}
and n_{3} are unitless. Note that n_{1}=3 for a monatomic gas,
5 for a diatomic gas, and 7 for a polyatomic gas in the temperature region of the
problem. R is the gas constant.
