Hi

I have question about the problem statement, I am posting it here. The problem statement says "semicircle" in a P-V diagram. But it seems to be a semi ellipse. Is that the sloppy
statement in the problem ?

hi issacnewton! :wink:

yes you're right, it's a semi-ellipse :smile:

i suppose they're trying to say that it's quadratic, and the curve is vertical at A and B :rolleyes:
