Work, Heat, and PV Diagrams
This program covers the important topic of work, heat, and PV diagrams in Physics. We begin by discussing how work and heat are related, and how the Pressure-Volume (PV) diagrams can be used to illustrate this relationship. The entire lesson is taught by working example problems beginning with the easier ones and gradually progressing to the harder problems. Emphasis is placed on giving students confidence in their skills by gradual repetition so that the skills learned in this section are committed to long term memory.
