(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

0.020 mol of a diatomic gas, with initial temp. of 20 C, are compressed from 1500 cm^3 to 500 cm^3 in a process in which pV^2=const.

a.) What is the final temp. in C?

b.) how much heat is added during this process?

2. Relevant equations

PV=nRT

3. The attempt at a solution

I've determined the final temperature to be 606 C, but can't find or think of what type of thermodynamic process, if any, pV^2=const. applies to.

I calculated the const.=~.07304 by setting pV^2=x and solving for x, but i'm not sure if that is even useful, and if it is, how it would be.
