Homework Help: Determine the net work done

  1. Feb 19, 2006 #1
    Wbc=0 Wab=-3315.4J Wca=nRTLn(Va/Vc)=-2108.98

    The net heat added to the gas for the entire cycle is 1200J. Determine the net work done by the gas on its surroundings for the entire cycle.


    Don't you just add the works?

    Because they have to be approved by a moderator. We've had people attach porn in the past, so every attachment goes through a moderation queue. I've just approved all your attachments.

    Are you sure about that? ab is an expansion, while ca is a compression. [itex]\int p dV[/itex] has a different sign along each path.
