I have 5.00 mol of O2(Oxygen) at 20.0 Celsius and 1.00atm. I will compress this to 1/10 the original volume.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find the work? The correct answer is 46.1 Kj

I am having a terrible time with this.

This is what I know: Q = 0 for an adiabatic process, and the change in internal energy is equal to work.

I think I use integrate Pdv, but Im getting very confused. I am really lost and need a push in the right direction!
