## Work required for Isothermal Compression Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Work_for_Isothermal_Compression = 2.3*(Mass for Compression*Specific gas constant*Input temperature)*log10(Pressure 2/Pressure 1)
Wiso = 2.3*(m*R*Tin)*log10(P2/P1)
This formula uses 2 Functions, 5 Variables
Functions Used
log10 - Common logarithm function (base 10), log10(Number)
log - Logarithm function, log(Number, Base)
Variables Used
Mass for Compression - Mass for Compression, in physics, quantitative measure of inertia, a fundamental property of all matter. (Measured in Kilogram)
Specific gas constant - The specific gas constant of a gas or a mixture of gases is given by the molar gas constant divided by the molar mass of the gas or mixture. (Measured in Joule per Kilogram per K)
Input temperature - Input temperature is the degree or intensity of heat present in the system. (Measured in Kelvin)
Pressure 2 - Pressure 2 is the pressure at give point 2. (Measured in Bar)
Pressure 1 - Pressure 1 is the pressure at give point 1. (Measured in Bar)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Mass for Compression: 1 Kilogram --> 1 Kilogram No Conversion Required
Specific gas constant: 286.7056 Joule per Kilogram per K --> 286.7056 Joule per Kilogram per K No Conversion Required
Input temperature: 200 Kelvin --> 200 Kelvin No Conversion Required
Pressure 2: 5 Bar --> 500000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
Pressure 1: 1 Bar --> 100000 Pascal (Check conversion here)
