What will be the workdone

  1. Jul 7, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Workdone by the ideal gas in changing its volume is given by
    W=P∫VfdV


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution


    My question is can we write the above equation by W=P(Vf-Vi)
    Is work done dependent on the path the gas has taken to do work?




    3. The attempt at a solution

    That's for constant pressure, right?

    Then W=P(Vf-Vi) is fine.
