Problem D9: Consider a monatomic 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 n1V0 and the pressure is P0. In state B the volume of the gas is V0 and the pressure is n2P0. The process is as follows: first A->B is isobaric (constant Pressure) to C, then C->B is isometric (constant volume). If the energy transfered to the gas in the form of heat Q for the whole process A->B is Q = n3 P0V0, what is n3? Note that n1, n2 and n3 are unitless.

n1 = n2 = Input n3:
