Understanding PV Diagrams - Work
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 V1-V2
3. The attempt at a solution
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) ?
