Homework Help: Transfer of heat energy

  1. Nov 23, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    There is a process that has three phases: isochoric, isobaric and isothermic.

    How to calculate the transfer of energy as heat(Q) during the isotherm and isobaric process?
    The temperature and the mass of the gas is known.

    2. Relevant equations

    In isochoric process you can calculate Q using the fact that Q =McΔT.

    3. The attempt at a solution
    I don't know the exact formulas.

    The formula that relates energy, heat, and work would be useful here. Also, the formula that relates energy and temperature of a gas.
