Example1: A quantity of air is taken from state a to state b along a path that is a straight line in the PV-diagram, where V a =0.070 m 3 , V b =0.110 m 3 , P a =1.00*10 5 Pa, P b =1.40*10 5 Pa. Assume that the gas is ideal. a) What is the work, W, done by the gas in this process? V P a b V a V b W = ½ (P a + P b )(V b -V a ) W = ½ (1.00 + 1.40)* 10 5 Pa*(0.1100 - 0.0700 ) m 3 W = 4.8* 10 3 J b) What happen with temperature and internal energy of this gas? For ideal gas
