Problem: You may want to reference(Pages 166 - 172)Section 5.2 while completing this problem.Calculate the change in internal energy of the following system: A 100.0- g bar of gold is heated from 25°C to 50°C during which it absorbs 322 J of heat. Assume the volume of the gold bar remains constant.

Change in Internal Energy:


E=q+w

  • q → (-) → heat is absorbed
  • w =  0 → Volume is constant (isochoric)


E=+q+0
