5. Heat transferred at constant pressure _____ the enthalpy of a system.
a) decreases
b) increases
c) first decreases then increases
d) first increases then decreases
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: At constant pressure, (dQ)=dh where h=u+pv is the specific enthalpy of the system.

6. The enthalpy of an ideal gas depends only on the temperature.
a) true
b) false
View Answer

Answer: a
Explanation: This is because the internal energy of an ideal gas depends only on the temperature.

7. Total enthalpy of a system H is given by

8. The enthalpy and internal energy are the function of temperature for
a) all gases
b) steam
c) water
d) ideal gas
View Answer

Answer: d
Explanation: The enthalpy of an ideal gas depends only on the temperature because the internal energy of an ideal gas depends only on the temperature.

9. Change in enthalpy of a system is due to heat supplied at
a) constant volume
b) constant pressure
c) both at constant volume and pressure
d) none of the mentioned
View Answer

Answer: b
Explanation: Change in enthalpy occurs when heat is given to a system at constant pressure.
