An ideal gas is carried around the cylic process described by the diagram. Let P0=4.00 and V0=3.00 liters. How much work in one cycle?

This is the diagram (also the question is how much work does the gas do in one cycle but I couldn't fit it in so)

    This is not a question for the "cars" section but instead belongs in science/chemistry or science/physics. The theoretical amount of work is of course the area within the curve, which here is a rectangle, and thus incredibly easy to calculate. A minor difficulty is that the units of volume are given in liters, but the units of pressure and of work are not specified.
