Suppose 145 moles of a monatomic ideal gas undergo an isothermal expansion from 1.00m^3 to 4.00m^3, as shown in figure. what is the temp at the beginning and end of this process? how much work is done by the gas during the expansion?

since it is isothermal the temperature is constant correct?

so to solve for the temperature would i just use pv=nrt with the respective values for pressure and volume?

and for the work done W=nrtln(vf/vi)

thanks
