# How much work is done on the gas in the process shown in Figure EX19.2?

The amount of work done energy is 60J

See the step by step solution

## Step 1: Definition of work done

The work done has represented as energy that is transferred between system and environment.

## Step 2: Finding the work done energy.

A the energy is transferred from gas to environment the work done is negative in the area of graph.

The area of the triangle is

The area of rectangular is

So, the total work done is the sum of triangle and rectangular
