q under non-constant pressure

Postby Luis De La Cruz 1H » Thu Mar 15, 2018 5:40 pm

Will we have to be given delta(U) and the variables to solve for work under non-constant pressure conditions to solve for q at a pressure that isn't constant, or would we just use q=mCvdelta(T) (given the mass and temperatures)? Or does this just depend on the question being asked?

It would ultimately be dependant on the question: on which variables they ask us to solve and the given info.
