c) Two moles of an ideal gas initially at 270c and one atmosphere are compressed reversibly to half the initial volume. Calculate the value of q, w, ?E and ?H when the process is carried on isothermally. (8marks)

d) A steel bottle contains 20 liters of hydrogen at 270c and a pressure of 50 atm. The gas expands isothermally and reversibly to 100 liters. Calculate:
