Consider an ideal gas that is confined to a container. The gas starts in the
state A. The gas then undergoes a quasi-static process to the state B that is shown in the
figure below. In state A the volume is V0 and the pressure is P0.
In state B the volume of the gas is n1V0 and the
pressure is n2P0. The process is described by a straight line
in the P-V plane. If the work done by the gas is W = n3
P0V0, what is n3?
Note that n1, n2 and n3 are unitless.
