The question is as follows:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

An ideal diatomic gas for whichcv = (3/5)*R, whereR is the ideal gas constant, and occupies a volumeV= 2 meters^3, at a PressurePi= 5 atmand temperatureTi = 20 degrees Celcius (= 293 K). The gas is compressed to a final pressure ofPf = 12 atm. Calculate the final volume Vf, the final temperature Tf, the work donedW, the heat transferreddQ, and the change in Internal energydUfor the following:

a). a reversible isothermal compression

b). a reversible adiabatic compression

i know in the adiabatic process, dQ = 0, and in the isothermal dT = 0. Where do i take it from here?
