A cylinder contains an initial volume V1 = 1m^^3 of a perfect gas at initial pressure p1 = 1 bar, confined by a piston that is held in place by a spring. The gas is heated until its volume is doubled and the final pressure is 5 bar. Assuming that the mass of the piston is negligible and that the initial force on the spring is zero, show that the pressure and volume V are related according to: 𝑝 − 𝑝1 ∝ 𝑉 − 𝑉1
I tried to work this backward so 𝑝 − 𝑝1 = k (𝑉 − 𝑉1) where k is the constant. After that, I don't know how to go about solving this question. Are we assuming the temperature remains constant in this question?
