One mole of a dilute gas initially has a pressure equal to 1.00 atm, and a volume equal to 14.0 L. As the gas is slowly heated, the plot of its state on a PV diagram moves in a straight line to the final state. The gas now has a pressure equal to 2.00 atm, and a volume equal to 78.0 L.

(a) Find the work done by the gas.

(b) Find the heat absorbed by the gas.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I took the area under the PV curve which is a triangle... 64/2*101.325
