## Essential University Physics: Volume 1 (3rd Edition)

We first find the final volume. Using the given equation in the problem that relates V and P, we find: $V_f=8.67 \ L$ Thus, converting 1 atm to $101.3\times10^3 \ Pa$. we find: $W = -2 \int_{17}^{8.67}(101.3\times10^3)(\sqrt{\frac{17}{V}})dV$ $W \approx 2 \ mJ$
