One mole of an ideal gas is initially at pressure P
_{1}
, volume V
_{1}
, and temperature T
_{1}
, represented by point A on the PV diagram above. The gas is taken around cycle ABCA as shown. Process AB is isobaric, process BC is isochoric, and process CA is isothermal.
(a) Calculate the temperature T
_{2}
at the end of process AB in terms of temperature T
_{1}
.
(b) Calculate the pressure P
_{2}
at the end of process BC in terms of pressure P
_{1}
.
(c) Calculate the net work done on the gas when it is taken from A to B to C. Express your answer in terms of P
_{1}
and V
_{1}
.
(d) Indicate below all of the processes that result in heat being added to the gas. Justify your answer.
