Solution Summary

This solution finds the temperature and delta measures for when monotonic ideal gas either expands reversibly or against a constant pressure in a container.

Solution Preview

First of all, we must assume that this gas is under going constant volume.

(a) Thus, for an ideal gas at constant volume ( in a container), we have the following:
(pfinal / pinitial) = (Tfinal / T initial)
