Understanding PV Diagrams - Work

  1. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Calculate the work done by the gas during process 1-> 3-> 6.
    Express your answer in terms of Po and Vo.

    2. Relevant equations

    W=integral(pv) from V1-V2

    3. The attempt at a solution


    I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, it keeps telling me I'm off by a multiplicative factor.. Should I be using W=nRT ln(V2/V1) ?

  3. Never mind, I solved it
