PHYSICSOne mole of a monatomic ideal gas has an initial pressure, volume, and temperature of
$$
P _ { 0 } , V _ { 0 }
$$
and 438 K, respectively. It undergoes an isothermal expansion that triples the volume of the gas. Then, the gas undergoes an isobaric compression back to its original volume. Finally, the gas undergoes an isochoric increase in pressure, so that the final pressure, volume, and temperature are
$$
P _ { 0 } , V _ { 0 }
$$
and 438 K, respectively . Find the total heat for this three-step process, and state whether it is absorbed by or given off by the gas.
