1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Calculate the work done by the gas during process 1> 3> 6. Express your answer in terms of Po and Vo. 2. Relevant equations W=integral(pv) from V1V2 W=PVln(V2/V1) 3. The attempt at a solution 3Po*V*ln(3Vo/Vo) I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, it keeps telling me I'm off by a multiplicative factor.. Should I be using W=nRT ln(V2/V1) ? ht tp://i33.photobucket.com/albums/d53/tizzful/151890.jpg (take out the space)
