3. The attempt at a solution

Well to start off I know the gas is monatomic

I can find the work done by finding the area under each curve/line:

[tex]W_{AB} = p_0(2v_0-v_0) = p_0v_0[/tex]

[tex]W_{CD} = (p_0/32)(8v_0-16v_0) = \frac{-p_0v_0}{4}[/tex]

I cant think of how to find the area under the other two curves, im guessing integration but I dont know how to set it up.

After I find these other to, what do I do?

Thanks
