Solution: A balloon filled with 39.1 moles of helium has a volume of 876 L at 0.0°C and 1.00 atm pressure. The temperature of the balloon is increased to 38.0°C as it expands to a volume of 998 L, the pressure remaining constant. Calculate q, w, and ΔE for the helium in the balloon. (The molar heat capacity for helium gas is 20.8 J/°C • mol.)
