3. A cylinder contains 1 kg of a certain fluid at an initial

pressure of 20 bar. The fluid is allowed to expand
reversibly behind a piston according to a law pV 2 = C
until the volume is doubled. The fluid is then cooled
reversibly at constant pressure until the piston regains
its original position ; heat is then supplied reversibly with
