    Oxygen at 300 kPa and 100 degrees C is in a piston, cylinder arrangement with an initial volume of 0.1 cubic meters. It is then compressed in a polytrophic process (P*v^n=constant) with n=1.2 to a final temperature of 200 degrees C.

    a) Calculate the heat transfer for the process.

    b) Draw a P V diagram for the process.
