Hi, I have the following problem:
The pressure, p, and volume, V, of a gas undergoing a polytropic process are related by the equation
p1V1^n = p2 V2^n
where n is the polytropic index.
If (p1V1)/T1 = (p2V2)/T2
determine an expression for p1, in terms of p2, T1, T2 and n.
(1 and 2 should be lower case) formatting didn't quite work!...
