Two moles of an ideal gas are heated at constant pressure from a temperature of 29C to 110C.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

calculate the work done by the gas

So work is the area under the PV curve, the only problem is I have no volume or intital pressure so PV=nRT doesnt help. Then I was thinking about Q= delta U -W but that doesnt seem to help.

How should I go about this problem because im stuck?
