In an adiabatic process 16 J of work are done on each mole
of a gas. If the gas has 5 degrees of freedom, how much
does its temperature change? Answer in terms of R


I know the answer is 6.4/R (K), but don't quite sure understand the the theory or math behind it.

You can use the first law (principle) and formula for the variation of internal energy of an ideal gas.
