## 4.43b) STP vs SATP?

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

### 4.43b) STP vs SATP?

question 4.43b defines the situation as being at standard ambient temperature and pressure, which i believe is 298.15, 1 atm; but the answer manual computes it using STP and in fact states the conditions of STP first...is this a typo? am i correct in using T=298 rather than 273?

It evidentally means that it is at STP, as seen in the solutions manual. SATP may just be a unique term.

For that question you have to just use STP as illustrated in the solution manual
