  • Q:

    In a closed system with constant temperature, pressure can be plotted against volume in a PV diagram. Given this, which of the following is NOT true?

     

    A

    The amount of energy expended by the system can be estimated by an area on the graph.

    B

    The relationship between pressure and volume would always be linearly decreasing.

    C

    The change in internal energy is equal to 0.

    D

    An appropriate example that can be plotted in this PV diagram is an ideal gas in a container (in a constant-temperature environment) which is allowed to expand slowly.
