19.18: a), b) The clockwise loop (I) encloses a larger area in the p-V plane than the counterclockwise loop (II). Clockwise loops represent positive work and counterclockwise loops negative work, so . 0 and 0 II I < W W Over one complete cycle, the net work , 0 II I + W W and the net work done by the system is positive. c) For the complete cycle, . so and 0 Q W U

Around each loop, . and then, ; so , II II I I &amp;lt; = = = = W Q W Q W Q U Heat flows into the system for loop I and out of the system for loop II....
