Problem 8.9

I know w=-PdeltaV but how do you convert L*atm to Joules?

You use the conversion factor 101.325J/1 L•atm. Heres the link to Dr. Lavelles explanation viewtopic.php?f=128&t=1898. Hope this helps!

You would use the conversion factor 1 L.atm = 101.325 J to convert your value.

I was also wondering, why when you attempt to convert L atm to J why it gives you a slightly different result when you don't use that conversion rate and instead use dimensional analysis multiple times.
