1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
The pressure and volume of a gas are changed along a path ABCA in the figure. The vertical divisions on the graph represent 2.5 multiplied by 105 Pa, and the horizontal divisions represent 1.5 multiplied by 103 m3. Determine the work done (including algebraic sign) in each segment of the path. (c) C to A J 3. The attempt at a solution Isn't it just the area under the curve from C to A? Area of a trapezoid? 5625 J?
