The value of is

See the step by step solution

Step by Step Solution

Step 1: Definition of work done

The work done has represented as energy that is transferred between system and environment.

Step  2: Finding the volume through work done energy.

As it is isothermal process , work done is positive.

The area of the triangle is

The area of rectangular is

So the total work done is

Here work done energy is 80J

So the value of is
