The internal energy of a monoatomic gas is:

$\overline{){\mathbf{\u2206}}{\mathbf{U}}{\mathbf{=}}\frac{\mathbf{3}}{\mathbf{2}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{R}}{\mathbf{(}}{\mathbf{\u2206}}{\mathbf{T}}{\mathbf{)}}}$, where n is the number of moles, R is the universal gas constant, and ΔT is the change in temperature.

An ideal gas undergoes an isothermal expansion from state A to state B. In this process
