A monatomic ideal gas is taken around the cycle shown in ?Fig. P20.46 in the direction shown in the figure. The path for process a is a straight line in the pV-diagram. (a) Calculate Q , W, and ?U for each process (b) What are Q, W, and ?U for one complete cycle? (c) What is the efficiency of the cycle?
Solution 51P Step 1 of 12: Since in the given problem, the gas we are considering is monatomic ideal gas. The specific heat capacity for monatomic ideal gas is, At constant volume, C = R 3 V 2
