Consider the piston-cylinder diagram below in State I and State 2, where the mass Of air inside cylinder?

piston-cylinder

#1

PV = MRT
Where P is V is volume, M is mass, T is arxi R is the specific gas constant, which is equal to 287 J/kg-K for air.
Consider the piston-cylinder diagram below in State I and State 2, where the mass Of air inside cylinder is the same in both
