"two moles of an ideal gas, in an initial state P=10 atm, V=5 liters, are taken reversibly in a clockwise direction around a circular path given by (V-10)^2 + (P-10)^2 =25. Calculate the amount of work done by the gas as a result of the process, and calculate the maximum and minimum temperatures attained by the gas during the cycle."

how do you find the max/min temperatures? at first, i thought of trying to take the first derivative of the path, but the results are weird...
