Working with processes of an application to ideal gases.

While its temperature remains constant at 80 degrees F, 2.5lb of a certain gas, whose cp=0.28 and cv=0.2Btu/lb-degreeR, rejects 300 Btu; p1=85psi. Determine (a) V1, V2, p2.

Once you know the V1=6.9ft^3; then you need to set the work done:

W=p1*V1*(ln(V2/V1)) (1)

Your work done, W ...
