## Homework Statement

Imagine a graph of pressure in kPa (y-axis) against volume in L (x-axis). There is a straight line moving from point A at 300kPa, 0.5L to point B at 500kPa, 1L. The false origin on this graph is 200kPa, 0L. What is the work done by the gas?

## Homework Equations

W=pV

## The Attempt at a Solution

I know that work is area under graph so its basically the area of a triangle plus area of trapezium. But this gives work = 100J but textbook says 200J. Where have I gone wrong?
