(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

A 1.20mol sample of an ideal monatomic gas, originally at a pressure of 1.00 atm, undergoes a three-step process: (1) it is expanded adiabatically from T1 = 592k to T2 = 390k ; (2) it is compressed at constant pressure until its temperature reaches T3; (3) it then returns to its original pressure and temperature by a constant-volume process.

Determine T3.

2. Relevant equations

E= 3/2 nRT

3. The attempt at a solution

So from T1 to T2, change in energy is -3022.97J. E at T1 8859.398J and E at T2 is 5836.4284J. From T2 to T3, it's isobaric. i found initial volume (at T1) to be .0583m^3. how do i go from here?
