(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Thermodynamics problem! How to find the temperature of a gas. Please Help!

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

In an engine, 0.45 moles of gas at 1050 degrees K in a cylinder expand adiabatically against the piston. The gas does 3200 J of work against the piston. What is the final temperature of the gas?

2. Relevant equations

What formula do I use?

3. The attempt at a solution

The only formula I can think to use is

W=(-P)(delta V)

But pressure and volume aren't given, and I can't find them with the given information.
