(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

The problem is derive the adiabatic processes for an ideal gas going through a point (v,p) on the p-V plane. Also, in terms of p,T and v,T. Draw the curves.

2. Relevant equations

First Law of Thermo

Properties of an Ideal Gas

Properties of Adiabatic Processes

3. The attempt at a solution

I derived the transformations, but I am getting the impression from the wording that I have to draw all three curves on the p-V diagram. Yet, I don't know. I figure I have to plot the other two in their respective planes.
