The equation of state for this gas is parenleftbigg p + a v 2 parenrightbigg ( v b ) = RT For an isochoric process, W = 0 as there is no volume change. For an isobaric process W = integraltext pdv = p Δ V as the pressure is constant. For an isothermal process we note, p + a v 2 = RT v b p = RT v b a v 2 . Therefore the work done is W = integraldisplay 2 1 pdv = RT integraldisplay 2 1 dv v b a integraldisplay 2 1 dv v 2 . Finally, one finds, W = RT ln v 2 b v 1 b + a parenleftbigg 1 v 2 1 v 1 parenrightbigg . Analysis of the Diesel engine cycle . Constant pressure segment. W 12 = p 1 ( V 2 V 1 ) . Δ U 12 = C V ( T 2 T 1 ) ideal gas . Q 12 = C p ( T 2 T 1 ) . Δ S 12 = integraldisplay 2 1 dQ T = integraldisplay 2 1 C p dT T = C p ln T 2 T 1 .
