The figure below shows two paths that may be taken by gas to go from state $$A$$ to state $$C$$

In process $$AB$$, $$400~\text{J}$$ of heat is added to the system, and in process $$BC$$, $$100~\text{J}$$ of heat is added to the system. The heat absorbed by the system in the process $$AC$$ will be:
1. $$380~\text{J}$$
2. $$500~\text{J}$$
3. $$460~\text{J}$$
4. $$300~\text{J}$$

The molar specific heats of an ideal gas at constant pressure and volume are denoted by $$C_P$$ and $$C_V,$$ respectively. If $$\gamma =\frac{C_P}{C_V}$$ and $$R$$ is the universal gas constant, then $$C_V$$ is equal to:
 1 $$\frac{R}{\gamma -1}$$ 2 $$\frac{\gamma -1}{R}$$ 3 $$\gamma R$$ 4 $$\frac{\left ( \gamma -1 \right )R}{\left ( \gamma +1 \right )}$$

A system is taken from state $$\text{a}$$ to state $$\text{c}$$ by two paths $$\text {adc}$$ and $$\text {abc}$$ as shown in the figure. The internal energy at $$\text a$$ is $$\mathrm{U}_{\mathrm{a}}=10 \mathrm{~J}$$. Along the path $$\text {adc}$$ the amount of heat absorbed $$\delta Q_1=50 \mathrm{~J}$$ and the work obtained $$\delta W_1=20 \mathrm{~J}$$ whereas along the path $$\text {abc}$$ the heat absorbed $$\delta Q_2=36 \mathrm{~J}$$. The amount of work along the path $$\text {abc}$$ is:

1. $$10$$
2. $$12$$
3. $$36$$
4. $$6$$ J
