Summary: Physics 408 Final Exam Name___________________________________________
You are graded on your work (with partial credit where it is deserved) so please do not just write down
answers with no explanation!
Please give clear, well-organized, understandable solutions.
h = 6.63×10-34
J s [Planck's constant] k = 1.38 ×10-23
J/K [Boltzmann constant]
c = 3.00 ×108
m/s [speed of light] me = 9.11×10-31
kg [mass of electron]
1 eV = 1.60 ×10-19
= 11,600 K
The variables have their usual meanings: E = energy, S = entropy, V = volume, N = number of particles,
T = temperature, P = pressure, µ = chemical potential, B =applied magnetic field, CV = heat capacity at
constant volume, F = Helmholtz free energy, k = Boltzmann constant. Also, represents an average.
In case you have a Rick Perry moment at this early hour, let us remind you that dE = TdS - PdV + µdN !
1. The enthalpy H S,P,N( ) is defined by H = E + PV .
