For a particular sample of monatomic gas, the rate of change of pressure with volume under isothermal conditions is -2 x 10^7 Pa m^-3. Calculate the rate of change under adiabatic conditions.

2. Relevant equations

isothermal:

dP/dV = -2 x 10^7

Q = nRTln(Vf/Vi)

monatomic:

PV^(5/3) = constant

adiabatic:

dU = dW

3. The attempt at a solution

I feel like this question should be easy but I just don't even know how to approach it. I'd be extreme grateful if anybody could point me in the right direction. Thanks.
