For part b, I tried an integral since it is a reversible reaction, but I didn't get the answer in the solution manual. I did -nRTln(v2/v1), but I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

For part b you should use the W = -nRTln(v2/V1).
You first have to use the ideal gas law PV = nRT to find the number of moles and then you can use the above formula. That should get you the correct answer.
