Answer

Please see the work below.

Work Step by Step

(a) We know that $W=-nC_v\Delta T$ $W=-n(\frac{3}{2}R)\Delta T$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $-2500=-(1)\frac{3}{2}(8.314)\Delta T$ This simplifies to: $\Delta T=200K$ (b) We know that $W=-nC_v\Delta T$ $W=-n(\frac{5}{2}R)\Delta T$ We plug in the known values to obtain: $-2500=-(1)\frac{5}{2}(8.314)\Delta T$ This simplifies to: $\Delta T=120K$
