Q 1. What are the conditions for the change in temperature of a van der Waals gas passing through a porous plug? Prove that the ideal gas passing through the porous plug does not show any change in temperature. [10 Marks]

Q 2. one mole of gas obeys the equation of state: (P+av2)(vb)=RT(P+\frac a {v^2})(v-b)=RT where vv is the molar volume and aa and bb are constants. show that the internal energy of the gas increases as volume increases, with the temperature remaining constant. [10 Marks]
