I have tried the ideal gas law to find the temp and Pressure so that i could then find the work but i am not getting the right answer in the end. any suggestions?

3.1 One kilogram of air in a piston-cylinder device undegoes a thermodynamic cycle composed of the following reversible processes: 1 to 2 the air at 2.4 bar and 250 K is expanded isothermally to 1.2 bar; 2 to 3 the air is then compressed adiabatically back to its initial volume; 3 to 1 the air is finally cooled at constant volume back to its initial state. Account for variable
specific heats.

c) Calculated the work (ans 57.3)

Ideal Gas Law = PV=nRT

sorry, that's all I can do. Make sure you're plugging all the information in correctly and don't round too soon.

    Helium has the lowest boiling point of the elements. The slightest change in temp can cause it to vaporize and expand. To prevent pressure explosions, a line from the tank has a "burst disk" in case a of sudden pressure increse.
