Expert Answer

Step 1

A chemical reaction takes place in a container fitted with a piston. As the result of the reaction, the piston moved against an external pressure of 1 .0 atm, so the volume of the container increased by 2.0L. The work done by the system is to be calculated.

Step 2

The work done caused by volume change against a constant external pressure is called P-V work.
