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 10-3 m3. Determine the work done (including algebraic sign) in each segment of the path.
(c) C to A
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?
