How will you calculate work done on an ideal gas in a compression, when a change in pressure is carried out in infinite steps?
o When an ideal gas in a compression, where the change in pressure is carried out in infinite steps i.e. through a reversible process, the work done can be calculated only through the observation of pressure vs volume plot of the process.
The shaded area in the above graph represents the work done in the process, by calculating the area covered we can calculate the work done.
