1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the work done by an ideal gas on a hooke's spring when heat is added until volume and pressure triple 2. Relevant equations Pv=nrT Q=ncΔt W=(1/2)kx^2 F=kx=P*A 3. The attempt at a solution I took the work equation for the spring and subbed in P*A to get w=(1/2)(PA)Δx and then i believe i can state that the work done on the spring is W=.5P2V2-.5P1V1 would you agree with this? I skipped some of the process so let me know if you need clarification.
