Thermodynamics & P-V Diagrams

In this video Paul Andersen explains how the First Law of Thermodynamics applies to an ideal gas in a piston. A pressure-volume graph can be used to determine the type of thermodynamic process. Included is a discussion of and P-V diagram for isothermal, isovolumetric, isobaric, and adiabatic process.
