A 1.10 mol sample of an ideal diatomic gas at a pressure of 1.20 atm and temperature of 420K undergoes a process in which its pressure increases linearly with temperature. The final temperature and pressure are 720K and 1.83atm.

Determine the work done by the gas.

Determine the heat added to the gas.

2. Relevant equations

E= 5/2 nRT

3. The attempt at a solution

So the change in internal energy I calculated to be 6860J.

So W + Q = 6860.

I can't figure out how to calculate W or Q because I don't know what kind of process this is (adiabatic, isobaric, isochoric, etc.) It just says pressure increases linearly with temperature. :(
