Initial pressure(p1)=140x103 Pa

Initial Volume (V1)=150 Lit = 0.150 m3

Final volume(V2)= 30 Lit=0.030 m3

Final pressure(p2)=?

Gas undergoes a polytropic process given by pV1.2 =constant

Therefore, for process 1-2 we can write,

=965.81 kPa

The work done during poly tropic process is given by

=-38.8715 kJ (-ve sign indicates work done on the gas)

Work done on the gas is W=39.8715 kJ
