Question details

1. Air is compressed in a piston-cylinder device. The initial state of this air is 0.5 MPa and 25 cm3 and their final state is 2 MPa and 5 cm3. The process is followed by P-a+ b* V, where p is megapascals and V is in cubic centimeters. a. Determine the values and units of the constants a and b, b. By integration, determine the magnitude and direction of the work involved, in joules, Sketch the process on a P-V diagram, showing clearly the initial and final states c.
