We are being asked to calculate the internal energy of a system that is giving off 25.0 kJ of heat and is changing from 12.00 L to 6.00 L in volume at 1.50 atm pressure.


The internal energy (ΔE or ΔU) of a system can be calculated from the heat and work of the system. The relationship between internal energy, heat, and work is shown in the following equation:
