Thermodynamic Work

  1. Apr 24, 2009 #1
    Hi,

    How can I find the thermodynamic work from
    dw=Pdv

    if P, Vand T are not constants?
    what if I knew that dp/dv is a constant in this case?

    You need to express P as a function of V first. Then you can evaluate the integral,

    W = ∫ P dV
