Let's say we are given 1.0 mol of an ideal gas, and we are given a starting temperature, and and initial pressure the gas exerts.
We are now told that the gas expands adiabatically until it reaches some other pressure, p2.
How do we calculate w and dH for this?
P, V, and T are all changing in this problem, so we can't use equations that hold the others constant.
