Find the work done by a gas when it is expanded from a volume of 1.0 L to 3.3 L at a constant pressure of 2.8 atm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I converted the atm to Pascals by multiplying 2.8 x 101325 to get 283710.

Then I used the formula W=p(deltaV)

so 283710 x (3.3-1.0) = 652533

I don't understand why this is the wrong answer.
