The energy of a gas is given by: E = 3/2*NkT-aN^{2}/V, where E, N, k, and a are held constant (or are just constants). Volume V_{1}with temperature T_{1}expands adiabatically into V_{2}. Determine T_{2}.

2. Relevant equations

All in part 1.

3. The attempt at a solution

I'm not exactly sure how to start on this problem. I'm not asking for an answer, but some tips on how to proceed would be appreciated.
