sketch a PV diagram and find the work done by the gas during the following stages

a) A gas is expanded from a volume of 1.0 L to 2.4 L at a constant pressure of 2.9 atm.


(b) The gas is then cooled at constant volume until the pressure falls to 2.1 atm.


(c) The gas is then compressed at a constant pressure of 2.1 atm from a volume of 2.4 L to 1.0 L. [Note: Be careful of the signs.]


(d) The gas is heated until its pressure increases from 2.1 atm to 2.9 atm at a constant volume.
