Question: i understand how to do the pv graph but can...

Question details

A piston-cylinder assembly contains a gas undergoing a 3-process thermodynamic cycle. The processes are Compression from pi-1 bar. Vi = 2 m3 to V2-0.15 m3. The pressure-volume relationship is described by pVconstant, and the internal energy of the system increases by 100 kJ i. ii Constant-volume cooling until the gas returns to the initial pressure (p) iii. Constant-pressure, adiabatic expansion. Draw this cycle on p-V diagram, determine the energy transfer by work and heat transfer for each process, and find the net work for the cycle. Is this cycle a power cycle? Explain.

I understand how to do the p-V graph, but can someone please explain and show me how to determine the energy transfer by work and heat transfer for each process and the net work for the cycle.
