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.
