A cylinder fitted with a smoothly sliding piston contains 200 liters of argon gas at 140 kPa and 10degC. The argon is then compressed in a polytropic process to 700kPa and 180degC. Assume argon is an ideal, constant cv gas under these conditions.

1) Calculate the sign and magnitude of the work done and heat transferred in this process
