Antiderivative of work

Postby ian_haliburton_1f » Wed Jan 30, 2019 9:44 pm

Since we can write the work function using an integral, does this mean there is some antiderivative equation that we can use to do straightforward integration?

Well, the external pressure can be taken out of the integral, and then you are left with w=Pex (Integral from vintial to vfinal of 1 dv). This integral part just equals vf-vi, or delta v. It's the same thing as the previous equation we learned.
