NEET Physics Thermodynamics Questions Solved

NEET - 2015

An ideal gas is compressed to half its initial volume by means of several process. Which of the process results in the maximum work done on the gas?

(a) Adiabatic

(b) Isobaric

(c) Isochoric

(d) Isothermal

Given, ideal gas is compressed to half its inital volume i.e 
Vo=V/2

The isochoric process is one in which volume is kept constant, meaning that work done by the system will be zero. i.e. Wisochoric=0

As we know, work done on the gas=Area under the curve i.e. 
Wadiabatic>Wisothermal>Wisobaric
