## Homework Statement

Derive an expression for the amount of work done when one mole of an ideal gas expands isothermally at a temperature T from an initial volume V

_{1}to a final volume V

_{2}.

## Homework Equations

PV = nRT

W =

^{V2}∫

_{V1}Pdv

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not really sure how to go about this, I know if it's isothermal the temperature doesn't change so Volume would be inversely proportional to Pressure. But other than that i don't know what to do, to be honest I'm not really exactly what they want me to write. Any help would be much appreciated :)
