q gas → heat absorbed in gas phase.
n = 1 mol
cgas = 48 J/mol-K
Ti = 338 K
Tf = 350 K
Assume that the values given here for 1 mole of methanol are constant over the relevant temperature ranges.
Given the heating curve for 1 mole of methanol beginning at 170 K and ending at 350 K answer the following questions:
What is the value of q gas for methanol?
