Q 1167178085.     A piston filled with 0.04 mole of an ideal gas expands reversibly from 50.0 mL to 375 mL at a constant temperature of 37.0°C.  As it does so, it absorbs 208 J of heat. Find the values of q and W for the process.
(R = 8.314 J/molK, In 7.5 = 2.01)
A

q = – 208 J, W = + 208 J

B

q = + 208 J, W = + 208 J

C

q = + 208 J, W = – 208 J

D

q = – 208 J, W = – 208 J

#### HINT

Use q = - W and W=− 2.303 nRT log⁡ ((V_2)/(V_1))
