Why do we use integrals to find w?

W is found using integrals because integrals add up the tiny increments of change in volume during expansion.

Because work is defined as the energy transferred from one type to another whenever a force is applied causing an object to move a distance.Work would be the area under the graph on a force-displacement graph.
