## GR0877 Problem 21

PROBLEM STATEMENT: This problem is still being typed.

SOLUTION: (C) For an adiabatic process $PV^{\gamma} = const$. Using $PV/T = const$ for an ideal gas, one has $P = const \cdot T/V$. Plugging this into $PV^{\gamma} = const$ yields $TV^{\gamma-1} = const$.

I think you meant to write PV^gamma = const. instead of PV = constant in the last line.
