what percentage of the heat which ﬂows into your system is converted to work. However,

you could certainly ask that same question for an individual step in a cycle. Speciﬁcally,

determine the eﬃciency of an isobaric process which takes a system from a volume V to a

volume αV where α > 1. You will not need to know the actual value of α. In the end, it

will cancel out of all expressions.

a: Do this calculation if the gas is monatomic.

b: Do this calculation if the gas is diatomic.

I'm stuck on trying to incorporate variables beyond

E=(3/2)(8.134)T-a/V
