## Homework Statement

One mole of a monatomic ideal gas, initially at temperature T, undergoes a process in which its temperature is quadrupled and its volume is halved. Draw a PV diagram of this process. Then find the amount of heat Q transferred to the gas. It is known that in this process the pressure was never less than the initial pressure, and the work done on the gas was the minimum possible.

## Homework Equations

Ideal Gas Law: pV = nRT

Work = pdV

Heat Capacity:

tex] C = limit \Delta T --> 0 \frac{Q}{\Delta T}[/tex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

This seems a very simple question, so I feel silly for needing to ask about it, but, I cannot seem to remember an equation for Q.

I have stated above some equations I feel may be relevant.

Any helpful ideas?

Thanks in Advance,
