a gas follows the equation:
PV=RT +kP k= constant P=pressure V= volume T= temperature R= ideal gas constant show that the work done by the gas in quasistatic adiabatic expansion can be expressed as W= CvT1 [1 (V1k/V2k)^R/Cv] V1= inital volume V2= final volume T1= inital temperature Cv= specific heat of the gas at a constant volume (not temperature dependant)
