What is Homework problem: Definition and 419 Discussions

Homework, or a homework assignment, is a set of tasks assigned to students by their teachers to be completed outside the classroom. Common homework assignments may include required reading, a writing or typing project, mathematical exercises to be completed, information to be reviewed before a test, or other skills to be practiced.
The effects of homework are debated. Generally speaking, homework does not improve academic performance among young children, because children need more sleep to develop and grow. Homework may improve academic skills among older students, especially lower-achieving students. However, homework also creates stress for students and parents, and reduces the amount of time that students can spend in other activities.

    Change of internal energy during linear transformation

    A linear transformation is described by: $$p=a-bV$$ From that we can find $a$ and $b$: $$b=\frac{p_{2}-p_{1}}{V_{1}-V_{2}} = \frac{2}{9}\frac{p_{1}}{V_{1}}$$ $$a=p_{1}+bV_{1}=\frac{11}{9}p_{1}$$ I considered an adiabatic process that intersects the linear transformation to find the point up...
