## Homework Statement

i have to find the W done in an Adiabatic, Quasistatic compression and im not having much luck.

Ive calculated it using (delta)U = Q + W, since Q = 0, hence W = change in internal energy

However i want to calculate it using W = -(delta)P*V

## The Attempt at a Solution

My working is attached, my text just says to use W = delta(U), but i know there is a way to do it via pressure and volume, im just not sure where to go from where im at.

Attempt is attached

Has to be in terms of T

_{A}, n (moles) and R
