Homework Help: Thermodynamic process P^2+aV^2=constant

  1. Aug 3, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    One mole of ideal gas expands from an initial volume V1,to a final volume V2. Where V1 and P1 correspond to the volume and initial gas pressure, whereas V2 and P2 correspond to the volume and pressure at the end of the process. The process is described by the equation:
    Find the work donde by the gas as a function of P1, P2, V1, V2. ΔP/P<<1 and ΔV/V<<1.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    i tried to find P as a function of V but then i got a weird result.
