Adiabatic process of monatomic gas problem

  1. Dec 12, 2014 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    By how much does the temperature of an ideal monatomic gas change in an adiabatic process in which 4.0kJ of work are done on each mole of gas?

    By how much does the temperature of an ideal diatomic gas (with molecular rotation but no vibration) change in an adiabatic process in which 4.0kJof work are done on each mole of gas?
    2. Relevant equations


    3. The attempt at a solution

    hi my problem is this information enough to do it. I don't know volume or pressure

    How is the internal energy of an ideal monoatomic gas related to the temperature?
    How much does the internal energy of one mole ideal gas change in an adiabatic process if 4kJ work is done on the gas?

    U=3/2 NkT, ok I got it.
    I'm going to substitute values in this equation
    thanks
