Find work in expansion?

Asked by ashutosharnold1998 | 10th Aug, 2019, 12:10: AM

Expert Answer:

Given:

V1 = 2 L 

V2 = 10 L 

P = 0 atm 

Expansion of a gas in vaccum is called free expansion.

No work is done in the free expansion of an ideal gas whether the process is reversible or irreversible.

We know,

W =−PΔV

    = −0×(2−10)

W = 0 (free expansion)
