Question details

The piston depicted below contains 2 kg of air which is initially at a pressure of 200 kPa anda temperature of 10 C. The piston is allowed to move freely and is frictionless and weightless. Heat is transferred to this container but the temperature remains constant. The volume increases by 50%. The air can be treated as an ideal gas. AIR 2 kg 0 a) What is the initial volume of the air contained in the piston? b) What is the final pressure in the piston? c) How much work is done on or by the piston? d) Is the work done in Part (C) done ON the piston or BY the piston? e) How much heat transfer is needed for this process? f) Is the heat transfer into or out of the system?

Please answer all Parts (A through F) with thorough and clear explanations, showing all calculations. Thank you!
