A 1.12 mol sample of an ideal diatomic gas at a pressure of 1.00 atm and temperature of 491 K undergoes a process in which its pressure increases linearly with temperature. The final temperature and pressure are 735 K and 1.39 atm. Assume 5 active degrees of freedom.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Neither pressure nor volume nor temp are constant, so I'm confused to how I'm supposed to find work or q.
