Heat engine question

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016

    This question asks to find out the work done over the course of this clockwise heat engine.

    Do I just do dW=-pdV \rightarrow W = \int_{0.05}^{0.10} P(V) dV etc. for both loops (obviously substituting in their relevant equations)? Or is it not as simple as that?
