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

### Units for Work

Is Pa.m^3 the only expanded "unit" that is equivalent to Joules? Are there other units we should know about??

I think those are the only units for Joules that you should know about

Joules is also equal to N*m and (kg*m^2)/s^2. Not sure if we are required to know those. I haven't encountered a problem where we had to do that
