The work done by thermodynamic system is the area under the P-V curve as it changes state.

Hi James. You did not calculate K correctly. In an adiabatic process, PV is not a constant.

It is preferable to type in your questions rather than posting pictures. Typing the questions makes it easier for helpers to quote specific parts of your post.

The force supplied by the pressure of the systems does work as it expands or contracts, at the expense of its internal energy.
