Problem 21.6: Match the expansion to the TS graph

Please wait for the animation to completely load.

There is a time delay-since the system must be in equilibrium-before the change of state occurs.

In this animation N = nR (i.e., kB = 1). This, then, gives the ideal gas law as PV = NT. Assume an ideal monatomic gas. Restart.

Which temperature-entropy graph goes with the animation shown? Explain.
