What is a pv diagram?

1 Answer

Answer:

It is a graph of pressure versus volume. It forms a #1//V#, and the area under the curve is the work done (by the gas left to right, on the gas right to left).

Explanation:

Pressure and volume are inversely related, so as pressure increases, volume decreases, with infinite pressure and zero volume as limits.

This forms a curve that is #P prop 1//V#.
