    One mole of nitrogen gas confined within a cylinder by a piston is heated from 9.1°C to 883.6°C at 1.30 atm. Calculate the work of expansion (include sign) in joules (1 J = 9.87à?10-3 atm L). Assume all of the energy is used to do work.

    T1 = 9.1 degree C = 9.1+273 = 282.1 K
    T2 = 883.6 degree C = 883.6+273 = 1156.6 K
    P = 1.30 atm = P2
