Problem P. 3998. (September 2007)

P. 3998. A cylinder with a piston in it encloses some air. Initially the volume of the air is V=0.1 m3, its temperature is 27 oC, and its pressure is p=113 kPa. The system is operated as a heat engine, while the air is taken through a cyclic process which consists of two isobaric processes at pressures of p and 2p and two isochoric processes at volumes of V and 3V.

a) What is the work done by the gas in the cyclic process?

b) What is the efficiency of this heat engine?
