What is the difference between expansion work and non-expansion work?

Expansion work relates to pressure-volume work and is found with the equation w=-Pext*dV . Nonexpansion work deals with electricity and other forces such as friction and motion, and the maximum amount of nonexpansion work that can occur is given by Gibbs free energy.
