There are a couple formulas for work that differ based on if a reaction is undergoing reversible or irreversible expansion. If the reaction is reversible, then use w=-nRTln(Vfinal/Vinitial), where T is the absolute temperature. When a reaction is irreversible and the external pressure is constant, then use w=-PexV.
