Carnot Cycle Uses 1

A Carnot cycle uses 1.00 mol of a monatomic perfect gas as the working substance from an initial state of 10.0 atm and 600 K. It expands isothermally to a pressure of 1.00 atm (Step 1), and then adiabatically to a temperature of 300 K (Step 2). This expansion is followed by an isothermal compression (Step 3), and then an adiabatic compression (Step 4) back to the initial state. Determine the values of q, w, ∆U, ∆H, ∆S, ∆Stot and ∆G for each stage of the cycle and for the cycle as a whole. Express your answer as a table of values.
