Consider an ideal gas encloesd in a 1.00 L container at an internal pressure of 10.0 atm. Calculate the work, w, if the gas expands against a constant external pressure of 1.00 atm to a final volume of 20.0 L.
w = ____ J

now calculate the work done if this process is carried out in two steps.
1] first let, the gas expand against a constant external pressure of 5.00 atm to a volume of 4.00 L.
2] From there, let the gas expand to 20.0 L against a constant external pressure of 1.00 atm.
w = _____ J

please help!
