Hello.

I am totally lost on this one. There seems to be something missing from the problem. Here goes.

A perfect gas is slowly compressed at a constant pressure of 2.0 atm from 10.0 L to 2.0 L. Heat is added to the gas holding the volume constant, and the pressure and temperature are allowed to rise until the temperature reaches its original value. Calculate (a) the total work done by the gas in the process, and (b) the total heat flow into the gas.

Thanks
