The air within a piston equipped with a cylinder absorbs 570J of heat and expands from an initial volume of 0.12L to a final volume of 0.88L against an external pressure of 1.0 atm. What is the change in internal energy of the air within the piston?

  • chemistry -

    deltaE=q+w
    q=570J
    w=-PdeltaV
    1 atm = 1.01235 x 10^5 Pa
    1,000 L = 1 m^3
    .76L*1.01235*10^5Pa=76938.6
    that is the answer i got but it said it was wrong and idk why

    I don't see that you used 570J anywhere. 0.76 L*atm is 77.01 J on my calculator.
