1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A monatomic ideal gas has pressure p_1 and temperature T_1. It is contained in a cylinder of volume V_1 with a movable piston, so that it can do work on the outside world. Consider the following three-step transformation of the gas: 1. The gas is heated at constant volume until the pressure reaches A p_1 (where A >1). 2. The gas is then expanded at constant temperature until the pressure returns to p_1. 3. The gas is then cooled at constant pressure until the volume has returned to V_1. It may be helpful to sketch this process on the pV plane. PART A: How much work W_2 is done by the gas during step 2? Express the work done in terms of p_1, V_1, and A. PART B: How much work W_3 is done by the gas during step 3? If you've drawn a graph of the process, you won't need to calculate an integral to answer this question. Express the work done in terms of p_1, V_1, and A.
