## Homework Statement

One mole of an ideal gas is warmed slowly, so that the pressure and volume go from (Pi, Vi) to (3Pi, 3Vi), in such a way that the pressure is analogous to the volume.

a) What's the Work (W)?

b) What is the correlation between the temperature and the volume during that process?

## Homework Equations

W = - ∫

^{Vf}

_{Vi}PdV

## The Attempt at a Solution

In this case, I don't have a stable pressure or volume, so I'm at the third case. So, I need a function of P that contains V. I know PV = nRT, and I know that n = 1 mole. Plus, R is a known quantity. Problem is, T is not a constant, so I can't integrate P = nRT/V.

Any help is appreciated!
