Process ab is isothermal (r is a constant). a) Without calculating the heats, use the First Law of Thermodynamics to determine for each process whether heat enters or leaves the system. Make your reasoning clear and concise. b) Compute the heat that enters the system in one cycle in terms of Ta and r. c) Compute the work done in one cycle in terms of Ta and r. What should the work be if r = 1? p
