A piston-cylinder device contains 1.2 kg of nitrogen gas at a 120 KPa and 27 degrees Celsius. The gas is now slowly compressed in a polytropic process during which pV^1.3= constant. The process ends when the volume is reduced by one-half. Determine the entropy change of nitrogen during this process.
