So I was doing problem and used formula Eq.1 to find Energy in isochoric process. ΔE=3/2pV and get a bad result so now i saw the correct formula: ΔE=nc_vΔT What is doing on? can somebody link consistent source of that formulas etc.?

The problem is the two equations for an ideal (perfect) gas should be
E = 3 2 p V
and
E = n C v T
Where the first equation can be derived from the second.
For an ideal gas, any process, internal energy is a function of temperature only according to the following where C v is condidered independent of temperature
E = n C v T
Although we normally deal with changes in internal energy and changes in temperature, this equation is based on assigning a value of zero to internal energy at absolute zero temperature.
Next, for an ideal gas we have
C v = 3 2 R
Next, for an ideal gas we have
C v = 3 2 R
Substituting into the equation for internal energy, we get
E = 3 2 n R T
From the ideal gas equation we have
p V = n R T
Finally, substituting this into the previous equation we get
E = 3 2 p V

Entropy change is defined as the amount of energy dispersed reversibly to or from the system at a specific temperature. Reversivility means that the temperature of the system must remain constant during the dispersal of energy to or from the system . But this criterion is only fulfilled during phase change & isothermal processes. But not all processes maintain constant temperature;temperature may change constantly during the dispersal of energy to or from the system . To measure entropy change ,say, from 300 K & 310 K, the range is divided into infinitesimal ranges ,then entropy is measured in that ranges and then is integrated . But I cannot understand how they have measured entropy change in that infinitesimal ranges as there will always be difference between the temperature however small the range might be . What is the intuition behind it? Change of entropy is measured at constant temperature,so how can it be measured in a range ? I know it is done by definite integration but can't getting the proper intuition . Also ,if by using definite integration to measure change, continuous graph must be there(like to measure change in velocity,area under the graph of acceleration is measured) . So what is the graph whose area gives change in entropy? Plz help me explaining these two questions.

How can scintillation gamma-spectrometers work given that track length is different for different angles?
As far as I understand, the basic principle of gamma spectrometer is simple - gamma ray hits scintillator, it generates number of photons which roughly proportional to gamma ray energy. Then we need to detect these secondary photons and plot a nice graph.
But as far as I see, scintillator size is typically too small to completely absorb gamma photon. Which also means that gamma photons coming from different angles will have different track lengths inside scintillator - and should generate different amount of light for the same gamma ray energy.
So, how can this work at all?

I have a cylindrical tank with an 'm' amount of water in it. The tank is sealed except through an exhaust with a fan that keeps a lower than atmospheric pressure (but not vacuum) inside the tank. The fan also works to expel forming gases. The vessel is kept at a constant temperature 'T'. This is a description of an actual device being built in which the lower pressure inside the vessel is used to lower the boiling point of water (and to remove it faster). Is there a formula anyone can recommend to calculate the rate at which water evaporates and exits the vessel?
