## Latm --> J

$w=-P\Delta V$
and
$w=-\int_{V_{1}}^{V_{2}}PdV=-nRTln\frac{V_{2}}{V_{1}}$

### Latm --> J

When calculating work using w=P∆V, shouldn't you always multiply by the 101.325 (J/Latm) number to put work in joules?
im just unsure since that number isn't in the equation.

thanks!

Yes I believe you should although it does depend on what units the question asks for.
