Answer :

o Work done in vacuum is calculated by :


-w = Text (Vinitial - Vfinal )


For the given problem: Pext = 0, because it is a free expansion.


Hence –w = 0x(5-1) = 0.


o For an isothermal expansion, no heat will be absorbed or evolved, hence q=0


By the 1st law of thermodynamics ,


q = ∆U + (-w)


since , both w and q =0 , then the change in internal energy ∆U will also be 0.
