Consider an ideal gas that is confined to a container. The gas
undergoes the cyclic quasi-static process shown in the graph below. The cycle consists of
two isothermal processes (constant T) bounded by two isometric processes (constant V).
The gas starts off with a pressure of P0 and a volume of V0.
The gas is first heated up with a constant volume to a pressure n2P0.
Then it expands isothermally to a volume en1V0. Next it
cools down with a constant volume. Finally, it is compressed isothermally to its original
state. If the net heat energy given to the gas is Qnet=n3
P0V0, what is n3?
Note that n1, n2 and n3 are unitless.
