Figure P12.6

(a)

To determine
The work done along the path AB.

Explanation

Given Info:

Constant pressure of the gas is 4×105Pa

Initial volume ( Vi ) of the gas is 1m3 .

Finial volume ( Vf ) of the gas is 5m3 .

Formula to calculate the work done of the gas is,

W=P(VfVi)

  • P is the pressure
  • VfVi is the change in volume

Substitute 4

(b)

To determine
The work done along the path BC.

(c)

To determine
The work done along the path CD.

(d)

To determine
The work done along the path DA.

(e)

To determine
The work done along the path ABCDA.
