First of all you are writing it out in Slovenian. That makes it a little difficult for most people to follow.

But it appears that you have done the derivation correctly except you have a sign switched. The left side of your equation third from the bottom of page 1 should be [itex]-(p_2-p_1)[/itex]. This is because the change in PV is equal and opposite to the changes in kinetic and potential energy: eg. A decrease in PV energy must be equal to the increase in the sum of changes in kinetic and potential energies.
